Eye-catching special needs news & autism articles from this week

Another week of rain and economic gloom. Note to self, stop listening to the Radio 4 Today programme, it's starting your day off ALL wrong.

Still there is some good news for me, anyway: I've been asked to take part in a Dragon's Den/Apprentice type thingy for young people. Apparently, I'm an inspirational business expert. When I told Son1, he snorted with derision. Now I'm going to spend the next few weeks feeling like a total fraud. I said yes, of course, because my message to those young people will be to embrace opportunities when they come-  both to help yourself and to help others.

Anyway, happy weekend and here's my pick of the posts and special needs news from the last week.

Is your special needs blog on my RSS? If I've never mention you here, the chances are you're not. Leave your website link in the comments and I'll add you in!
