CHIL­DREN with spe­cial needs are in danger of “fall­ing through the cracks” with par­ents feeling they aren’t be­ing heard.

IF YOU are or know of any par­ents or fam­i­lies having trou­ble with spe­cial needs chil­dren and be­ing heard, please don’t be afraid to come for­ward.

After all we are a voice for our chil­dren.

Not all ASD chil­dren are the same, what works for one may not work for all and peo­ple need to un­der­stand this.

If there is enough of us and if we speak loud enough some­thing will be done.

We are all want­ing our spe­cial needs chil­dren to have the same op­por­tu­nity as an­other child, so they can grow into in­de­pen­dent, knowl­edge­able won­der­ful adults and to live a happy life well after us par­ents can no longer be around for them.

Girl power ay!

IT’S I not just cap­i­tal cities that can c over­shadow re­gional ar­eas, a as South­ern Downs mayor m Tracy Do­bie urges govern­ment g de­part­ments to look l be­yond smaller cities like Cairns C and the Gold Coast when w ex­plor­ing re­gional op­por­tu­ni­ties. o

BET­TER still, look past the towns t al­to­gether.

The wealth is pro­duced on the t farms, the cat­tle runs, and sheep s sta­tions, and in the mines. m

Coun­cils and clerks pro­duce noth­ing. n

They are not even representative r of the pro­duc­ers. p
