Dear Sarah Sander:

I have just finished reading your publication from front to back and very much enjoy your wisdom.

I am editor of our local Down Syndrome Association's newsletters. Could I have permission to reprint your words in response to 'Going too Far For Disabled Children" on page 40, Issue #10? It is just amazing how you have put it all together and I couldn't agree any more with what you have said. My son with Down syndrome who is a twin, is now 4 years old (both were born at 27 weeks gestation…his twin does not have Down syndrome) has been in a fully inclusive junior kindergarten class this year and it is NOT working. His behaviors have gotten worse and he does not know any more now than he did at the beginning of the year. I know you are a busy woman, so I will stop at that…
