Breaking Barriers is a blog that aims to break the taboos, the stigmas, and the walls that people have come to accept in society and in the special education world. It is the ideal name for this blog and for us because we are eager to use our voices, our students' voices, and yours to bring together the ASD community! We welcome you as a member of our PT family—let's break the cement holding us down and reach beyond the ceiling to new heights of learning, thinking, and change!
