5. What setbcks has the child had since the therapy?

6. What reaction did the family have to the news about the diagnosis?

7. What is the family's perspective of the special education services?

8. What are the challenges of raising/living with a family member who has been diagnosed with a disability?

9. What changes would you like to see in the special education program?

10. What changes would you like to make to the diagnosis and referrel process?

were you looking for hearing loss or does the type of disability matter?

also, some folks might not feel comfortable answering personal questions on an open forum. I would suggest leaving your email for the person to respond to
