What's so SPECIAL?
According to Wikipedia:
In the United States, special needs is a term used in clinical diagnostic and functional development to describe individuals who require assistance for disabilities that may be medical, mental, or psychological. For instance, theDiagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and the International Classification of Diseases 9th edition both give guidelines for clinical diagnosis. Types of special needs vary in severity. People with autism, Down syndrome,dyslexia, blindness, ADHD, or cystic fibrosis, for example, may be considered to have special needs. However, special needs can also include cleft lips and/or palates, port-wine stains, or missing limbs.
Personally, I learnt these two simple English words "SPECIAL NEEDS" the really hard way or probably a lot more than the word "Hard". Many know I have a special child, Alex. When I learnt he is autistic 7 years ago, I took more than 4 years to be able to accept the word "autistic". I spent lot of time and energy researching, learning and sometime I blame myself like many parents out there. One thing I did maybe a bit differently is I set up a few Golden rules for the investment plans because I know like many people out there we only have 24 hours everyday to earn a decent living. However, I probable need tons of money for my son, Alex. I have a simple goal for Alex and my loved one which is to build a simple passive income model. The journey begin here...
