If you’ve done any research into special needs, you’ve probably been surprised by just how many different disorders and conditions can affect speech and language development. Like so many parents of special needs kids, Bonnie Korman and her husband Mark had never heard of Fragile X syndrome before their two boys were diagnosed with it. Fragile X can cause a wide range of symptoms, from communication issues to sensory overload. It’s also closely linked to autism. Today, Bonnie Korman is sharing her advice about parenting special needs kids and guiding them through the ins and outs of life. She’s also offered her tips on preparing kids for the back-to-school season, and notes that it’s important to customize your back-to-school preparation to your child’s unique needs. For more on Fragile X syndrome and the Korman Family’s story, head on over to Bonnie’s blog at The Fragile X Files.
