Special Needs High-Low Chart

Hands up

The high of the birth of a beautiful baby boy

the low of the unexpected diagnosis

The high of the realization of endless possibilities

the low of the realization of closed minds

The high of every milestone, no matter how big or small

the low of feeling time stand still when there is no sign of progress

The high of finding and achieving acceptance, awareness and support, especially from those you least expected

the low of finding lack of acceptance, awareness and support, especially from those you least expected

The high of being exposed to a whole new community, a “coming together” for the benefit of the cause

the low of being exposed to those who have their own agenda under the guise of the cause

The high of a love so deep, that the lows are recognized as learning experiences that create stronger and more enduring highs.
