Weekend Warriors #10

Click Here to see how it works:

There are no rules...(feel free to post an old or new post!)
this will run through the whole weekend
(Friday evening posted by 9pm PST
thru Noon Monday, PST )
so that Special Needs Families
will have time to participate..
we never know what any day is going to be like..

This weeks Question:
How do you schedule activities 
to fit your whole Families needs? 
(example everyone wants to go swimming,
but what about the person in the wheelchair?)

My Tip of the day:
You can't go through life allowing pain to dictate how you behave
~Adam Braverman (Parenthood)

My Post:

Answer to the Question..

I research. I find ways for my family 
to have fun where everyone is satisfied. 
AMC Theatres has Sensory Friendly Films Nationwide.
You can go to the movies and 
the kids can split up with their friends 
to watch what they want to see,
You can take your Special Needs Child
to see the newest Sensory Friendly kids movie!
Shrek 4 is playing today near us. 
(we won't make it today though, 
we are going to support the Lemonade4Autism Stand)

Most of the time, I just do whatever my wife wants us to do. She is great at finding this sort of thing.

I don't have a special needs child to schedule around. But I do have four. And sometimes one just has to tag along on something he or she isn't crazy about. That's just part of being a family.

Hi! I don't have a special needs child. When we did activities we would have to know wheelchair accessibility as well as how long each person could tolerate the activity. Have a good day.

The Lemonade 4 Autism stand is important! I hope you had a great time!

Save Shrek for a rainy day...
