Welcome to Holland Momma!

[If you haven't read my post with the Holland poem first, please do here!]

Now that you're in Holland there are a few things I want you to know...

Language can make a big difference, especially when you're talking about your child with a disability.

In the disability community, People First Language is super important! When talking about a person or child with a disability, you put the person first. Always!

Instead of, my child is Autistic, Downs, etc.

My son HAS Autism, my daughter HAS Down Syndrome, Congenital Disorder of Glycosylation, etc. They HAVE a genetic disorder, a muscle disorder, etc.

Your child is much more than this diagnosis (or two) that you've received.

They're always a person first.

Also, I don't use or love the term "special needs". If you want to, that's totally fine. But a lot of people in the disability community think it's not a very accurate term. Your child has needs just like we all do. Some may be different needs but they're not "special".

Watch this to see what I mean... :)

You're amazing Momma & so is your child!

They will do amazing things & so will you being their advocate!

Welcome to Holland, it's so beautiful here! You'll see...

Sending all the love!
