Hi everyone! Hope your enjoying the last days of summer the best you can during these crazy times. Now that plans are out and most have spoken with IEPs teams and teachers. What's your child's school year looking like? Has anyone opted for virtual over a hybrid model? Is anyone still on the fence about sending their kiddo? Hoping to compare notes and see what different districts are doing and what DS families in the area are thinking to best educate our loved one while keeping them safe this year. Thanks for any input:)
Does anyone have any resources for Momma’s who are breastfeeding their little ones with DS?
