Internet Safety

(For Parents of Children with Developmental Disabilities)

Just what you needed... one more thing to worry about. Sure, you may realize that everything you read on the Internet isn't true or that everyone you encounter on the Internet isn't sincere and honest, but does your child know this?

When we set out to tell you more about internet safety and developmental disabilities, we realized that there was no need to write a new article because there are some excellent articles already out there. Here's what we mean:
