I just finished reading this post by @mamabegood on her blog of the same name. The post and the comments contain a great, interesting discussion about the inherent tension in addressing what “mainstreaming” means (or ought to mean) for children who aren’t neurotypical. It’s definitely worth reading through the entire thread.
I fall somewhere between Brenda’s view and that of Elise Ronan (@RaisingASDKids) (see the comments). I haven’t decided quite yet how to articulate that, but I will post more later.
