Why a Label is Better Than None

I just have to get some of this off my chest . . .   Not so long ago the thing that worried me most was having a label on my daughter. This scares a lot of people. Whether it’s SPD, ADD, ASD; maybe dyslexia or apraxia; maybe something completely different . . . it is difficult […]
