Our son has autism, but for eight years he flew under the radar.
He is legitimately gearing up to be someone that changes the world!
I tell this story not to garner sympathy, but to breath excitement into you, that parent whose child is struggling with a “normal” education and maintaining “normal” friendships.
And I'm thinking, yeah, I've got to tell more people what we found out. Because never in my life have I heard of the concepts I've learned about in the last few weeks, and I'm a well-researched, smart, educated gal. So it stands to reason that most of my momma peers don't have a clue either.
I figured others might benefit from the info I've gathered. Here are the current private schools available in the Springfield, Missouri area, what makes them stand out, and any other info I could gather.
The thing about fully investing in the needs of your gifted child is that, when you start doing the research, you learn a lot about yourself too.
My goal here is to share the struggles that come along with being and parenting a gifted child.
