    Louise,Thank you for posting these figninds. For, this article demonstrates why parents must try to find a balance between protectionism and helping their kids aquire the necessary skills to live a fulfulling life well into adulthood.Nonetheless, I will be the first one to admit, “We must learn more about those with severe or multiple disabilities. For, as it stands now, there remains a huge divide between our understanding of mild, moderate, and severe disability. I also believe that parents and children create this division, simply wanting to belong, but the truth is, ‘we are the ones pushing others away instead of bringing them together.'”Matt Kamaratakis
