Since I've only mustered the energy (physically, emotionally, cognitively) to put together 23 posts this year, doing a Top 10 list felt . . . cheap. Here instead are the 3 top posts from this year, as determined by reader comments:
#3: "An Open Letter to the Parent of a Child with Speech Delays": In which I say the time for AAC is now. Do not wait for the experts, you can do this.
#2 : "I need a new word": In which Maya tells me that she needs me to add a new word to her talker, and I struggle to interpret her clues as to what the mystery word is. (Hint: There is a triumphant ending.)
#1: "Adding (bureaucratic) insult to (permanent) injury": In which I lay out the outrageous (truly, truly outrageous) process that we had to go through to renew Maya's NYC parking permit for people with disabilities.
See you all in 2014 :)
(Also, if you're not already following the Facebook page, I manage to get on there and chat much more frequently than I manage to put together new posts.)
