How do I help people understand my daughter has special needs?
My daughter has sensory processing disorder as well as several other problems. This causes public places, especially stores, to be overwhelming for her. She often just starts screaming and thrashing, and I can hear the comments from the other shoppers about what a brat she is and how I need to discipline her. All of this is very hurtful to me. How do I help people understand that she's special needs and not a brat?

How do I teach my developmentally disabled child about strangers and predators?
My soon-to-be six-year-old is developmentally disabled and doesn't express himself well. How do I teach him about stranger danger or sexual predators? I was able to teach my two older children about this very early, but I'm not sure how to go about it with him. He is high-functioning, but it's difficult to hold a conversation with him.
