Grieving Over Your Special Needs Child/Struggling Learner

Do you ever grieve over your special needs child? Do you grieve the losses when her peers move ahead? Or when other kids shun him because he’s different? I’m in that mode right now, for both of those reasons.

My daughter is nonverbal and a little behind so once other kids┬ábegin to interact with her, they realize she is different. Their responses are interesting. Some of the run to their parents, some just ignore her, and yet others will try to play with her–for a short while. So far, she seems unaware but it is heartbreaking to watch.
