Getting help for difficult and awkward situations

When I interviewed 64 parents for my book, Homeschooling Your Struggling Learner, several women told me about not being able to take a child with autism to church, because he or she could not tolerate either the worship service or Sunday School.

When Carol Barnier blogged about dealing with adults who are mean to a child with special needs, one of her solutions also works for those church situations, which can be awkward even when no one is the least bit mean. Of her many practical suggestions, my favorite is her story of “Cory’s Crew.” Start reading here, and you’ll find Cory’s story under “Get a Big Brother/Big Sister.”
