During my visit to Inclusion Matters in LA, I talked to several people about what it is like to raise a child with a disability in the US in LA.
In those conversations people often referred to the story “Coming to Holland”. I had no idea what they were talking about and I am from Holland!
It turned out to be a story by Emily Perl Kingsley. Emily is a mother of a son with a disability. In the story she explains through a metaphor how she experiences raising her son.
Read the story on her site and discover what a special woman Emily is. She has worked at Sesame Street for 45 years and knows Elmo personally!!!
