Ciaran and Shay: Described!

Hi all,

Last week we got together with all of the people involved in Ciaran and Shay's care. This group included all areas where Ciaran and Shay receive services + the staff of the daycare that Ciaran and Shay go to three days a week. Today's post is not about that meeting specifically as that will be a future post but I did want to publish how Janet and Natalee described Ciaran and Shay during the meeting. They provided a handout for everyone and the review of the list brought laughter and lots of nodding in agreement....Anyway, without further delay - Ciaran and Shay: Described!
