Should Disney feature a princess with Down Syndrome?

I came across an interesting article this morning regarding a petition being signed to have Disney create a princess with Down Syndrome, and one mom's views on why she doesn't think they need to. Two very popular shows, Glee and American Horror Story (AHS), have actresses with Down Syndrome as recurring stars. I personally love AHS and Jamie Brewers' roles. She shows that no matter who you are, you can fall in love, be a witch and steal a scene, even with an extra chromosome.

Halloween Freebies including Social Story and learning activities!

I know this is last minute, but just in case you also plan last minute like me, here are a few FREE Halloween activities! These include some learning activities to do at home or school (I'll be printing on my prep time!) as well as a social story about passing out candy at home. I know in Northern Indiana, it is supposed to rain and potentially snow tonight, so for anyone who opts out of actually going out to Trick or Treat, this is a good option!
