    why blurred faces?

    why blurred faces?

    Im just wondering and can understand the need to respect peoples privacy. but having a child/children with special needs is not something negative. The community needs to move away from the 19060’s and fully embrace each other. Your children are our children and their special needs are our responsibility as well.

    Well done shagalows!!

    well said BUT
    are you a parent of a child with special needs?
    if you are, can you go back down the memory lane and remind yourself of the moment you found out about your child diagnosis? how about the ensuing weeks/months where you weren’t interested in anyone’s sympathy, looks, comments, compassion and help? remember there are 5 stages with a child with special needs. not everyone jumps to stage 5 in one day.
    if you are not a parent then don’t be one to moralize.

    I’ve heard Chana and Yosef Shagalow give seminars on various topics in education, marriage, special education, anxiety and family relationships. I am very impressed with their knowledge, professionalism and deep insights. They have many years of experience and have helped hundreds upon hundreds of children and families.Thank you for sharing your expertise and giving of yourselves.

    I am a special needs parent and frankly I disagree with the blurring of the faces.

    What’s the difference whether you agree or disagree with teh blurring of the faces. Someone of authority for this post decided that was the appropriate thing to do. MUST you see the people’s faces? Why opine at all?

    The shame and stigma attached to having a special needs child is perpetuated and fostered by the entire culture of blurring faces etc. An organization whose purpose is to help these families,should help our communities with accepting and embracing our children.

    Beautiful event !
    Just wondering why Anash with a Special Needs Children would not be invited to such a supportive and informative program.

    those parents deserve a break like this

    as a parent of a special needs child I agree that all Anash should have similar getaways, but there are definitely unique challenges for shluchim with special needs kids and they need their own niche where they can finally relax and share with others in very similar situations

    A parents choice

    A parents choice

    I believe it is the choice of the parents raising a child with special needs as to whether they want the publicity around both themselves and their child. For each family it is a personal journey and I applaud the Yaldei program for not taking and making that decision for those in attendance. Each family is on their own journey and NOONE should force their own agenda and decide if faces should be blurred or not. Thank you Yaldei for being sensitive and allowing participants to decide on an individual basis their comfort level of publicity. Too often there is… Read more »

    I disaggree, shlichum BH have usually the support of their community where some ANASH may not have that. Also I feel that the Achdus would in itself be a support Chizuk for all.
    Isolating or as you call it “niche” is not the appropriate derech.
    In fact inviting ANASH might actually help the program financially.

    yes, a choice

    We are are part of Friendship Circle and we sign a waiver if we want our photos used. our family feels proud to be in this holy org.and to help other parents fell less stigmatized. Unless you’re asp.needs parent,you have no idea of how isolating it can be. Those who do want their photos released should have a choice.

    My opinion?

    My opinion?

    Ask the people involved the reason for blurring the faces. Meanwhile, kudos to the event and people involved. This is a much needed topic. There is a lot of ignorance about this topic. And guess what! There are plenty of adults who have some sort of disability or “special” need; they just don’t know it! Times are changing, and education will change the outlook and how to address such issues. Bravo!
