We have a new Featured Parent to introduce you to!
Fun and Function: Who are you and your kids?
Heidi: I'm Heidi and my son is Korbin, 6.
FF: What is the nature of their special needs?
H: Aspergers and C-costomy Button (last 2 feet of colon do not work).
FF:Where can we find your blog?
H: I write at Korbins Care.
FF: What would you say is your biggest challenge in raising a child with special needs?
H: Patience can be very difficult.
FF: What would you say is your greatest joy in raising your child?
H: What I get to see in him - his zest for life and his compassion for people!
FF: What would you say has been the biggest help you in raising your kids?
H: The discovery of what Aspergers is all about through the different books and reliable websites.
FF: Give us one tool you would hate to live without.
H: The iPod! There are so many wonderful apps that teach him and keep him busy!
FF: If you could give one piece of advice to another parent who's child has just been diagnosed, what would it be?
H: Watch the movie, Temple Grandin. It's an amazing movie that answers questions that we didn't even realize we had.
Heidi, thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us and all the readers here at Fun and Function.
