I'm just curious what type of activities if any your special needs child is involved in. My daughter has participated in 3 pageants for children with special needs. She also started with a cheer squad for children with special needs back in June. I love the pageants. It's not your typical pageant environment. Every child that participates has different abilities. Some are in wheelchairs, use walkers, ride in wagons and all exert their beautiful qualities from within! It's such a loving experience. Every child gets a crown and trophy everyone makes the feel so special in their pretty attire (boys and girls!). Her cheer squad is children of different abilities from age 5 up to teenagers! There are only 8 on the squad now but it's slowly growing as the word gets out. They have their first "performance" at a high school basketball game halftime this month.
