Jack and I wish you a Happy & Inclusive Valentine's Day!
Like many other holidays, Valentine's Day often presents challenges to children with differing abilities.

Fact is, this sweet little holiday that celebrates friendship and love can also create big stressors for some families, especially for children with learning disabilities, although I would include many other differing abilities in this statement, too.

Whatever challenges your child faces, here is a piece to help everyone get through the day with more joy and less angst.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and all those that fight for equality and justice for ALL, especially for our most vulnerable children, I share this powerful battle cry, "The Champion" by Carrie Underwood. 

Watch it here.

Judy Winter recognized at L'Oreal Paris Women of Worth Gala in NYC, Dec. 2019


It's long past time for me to play catch up on this blog. My bad. 

If you follow this blog regularly,  you know I offer much more regular posts on my professional Facebook page and invite you to follow me there. That link is at the top of my website pages.

That said, and because I have had an extremely hectic December, I'm a bit more behind than usual on the news updates here. Let's try to rectify some of that beginning right now. Thanks for your patience and continued visits.

Here's just a bit of what I've been up to and sharing on FB since I lasted posted here at Thanksgiving.

In 2020, I'll do my best to post at least monthly here. A rare New Year's resolution.

Reminder: you can follow my professional FB page to access almost daily special needs updates.

Late last year, I was named one of ten recipients of a L'Oreal Paris Women of Worth Honoree award for my work with the Eric 'RicStar' Winter Music Therapy Camp. 

To help bring you up to speed, here are a few
media links that covered that honor. If you'd like to see more, just head over to my blog where I shared much more.
