Another year is coming to an end. Now is the time that many of us reflect on the previous year, and start making plans for an even better new year. I would like to extend a big “Thank You” to all who have contributed to our blog over the past couple years. In 2010 we also welcomed some new writers such as Shawn Dean and Stephenie Labandz, PT. With the addition of our new Capable Kids Clubhouse, we have been able to add more posts geared towards special needs families and therapists as well!
