When we think about true love and marriage, many images come to mind of a happy couple enjoying the best times of their lives together. People from all walks of life fall in love every day and couples with disabilities and limitations are no different. Mike and Jane Snell of New Milton have just celebrated an amazing 10 years of wedding bliss with their family and friends at a barbeque celebration. The Snell’s are a unique couple in their 50’s with special needs that have never gotten in the way of their relationship. Jane’s most memorable moment of her wedding day was having her 95-year old mother in attendance to witness her father walk her down the aisle. The couple reminisces about their Honeymoon spent in Bournemouth and the times spent in the Butlins. The Snell’s have fond memories of their wedding reception at a local pub. Family and friends took the honor and privilege of managing the event planning duties ranging from photography, driving, down to making the bridesmaid dresses.
Learning disabilities can be a very hard thing to deal with for both parents and adults. There can be some embarrassment that goes along with the diagnosis of a learning disability and many times indicators that a disability may be present are ignored or just brushed aside because of the stigma that may go along with being known to have these issues. But when caught early, these problems can be minimized and most kids can find ways to focus, learn and keep up with their peers. The following are some indicators that someone may have a learning disability. If you have found your child to experience some of these issues, talk with their pediatrician to see what needs to be done to allow your child to thrive in a learning environment.
