Does it look like this young man isn’t aware of other people or things? Does it look like he is incapable of love? The professionals who made these statements were wrong! .
Noting, I mean nothing, irritates me more than when a so-called professional, who only interacts briefly with a client, determines that person’s entire future based off a brief encounter and a diagnosis they asserted by checking off boxes. .
No one can put limits on your child. NO ONE! I don’t care about their pedigree. No professional or educator knows your child as well as you do; and the doctors who limited my child sure as hell didn’t know me...at all. These professionals will never fight for your child as hard as you will. They have no right to limit you or our child, steal your hope, or underestimate the power of sheer will. .
Unfortunately, I see many parents take these pre-determined limitations to heart because it is coming from a doctor or professional. As a result, no or little action is taken to help the child progress. Progress may be slower than we like and it does require hard work (lots and lots of hard work), perseverance, and endurance. However, I strongly believe that any child can progress. I have seen it happen too many times to deny it. Don’t let any limit you or your child’s progress. . “There are no limits to our future if we don't put limits on our people.” --Jack Kemp
