Hello from the newest member of the Special Needs Consultant Team. I became part of the HSLDA family back in January 2012, and I have to say that it has already been a most rewarding experience. I have loved being able to encourage our members. Prior to the fall of 2011, I had never even heard of HSLDA. Not only that, but I used to be a public school teacher. Yikes! What am I doing here??? Well, God has an interesting way of directing our paths, and preparing the way for us, even before we are anywhere close to changing direction.
