Proud family - Xmas show

I’ve held back from writing this because I don’t want it to be too mushy. Oh, alright then; a proud family was in the audience to see Stan perform in the Xmas show last week. His fantastic cousin was in the front row, gesturing all of the actions. This was, however, the only help he needed. Stan was on stage, but vitally, without a learning support assistant ~ and he was fantastic. It was a real “If I’d have known on the day he was born” moment. And a great advert for mainstreaming education (for those that want it). It was a brilliant moment; there wasn’t a dry eye in our family. (alright, his bro was cool about it).

Family Guy

Family Guy has been made famous by Sarah Palin who complained because it has a character with Down’s in it. The actor is Andrea Fay Friedman. I saw a small part of an episode the other night and Andrea was back in it. What a brilliant way to cover learning disability. Great script.
