Before you read this issue, you should be warned.

If you are one of those humor-challenged individuals who believe there is absolutely nothing funny about children with disabilities, we urge you to stop reading now, and go back to biting your nails down to your elbow.

Humor and laughter have a positive positive impact on mind and body. Having a sense of humor is great, but maintaining one is not always easy.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate, we invite you to lighten up and laugh. If you have a sense of humor, spend some time on the Lighter Side of Special Education.

Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
