About Megan Kirkpatrick
Hello, my name is Megan Kirkpatrick and I have a combination of disorders: Asperger’s, ADHD and Dyspraxia. I have experienced a different life than many kids. My disabilities have never defined me and my mom never let my disabilities be an excuse. My mom even took the initiative of everything I had been through to open PediaPlex, a collaborative care center, to help other families who were struggling in the same way. I am successful today because of the occupational therapy, speech therapy and counseling services that I received for the past ten years and the awesome school, The Hill School of Fort Worth that I have attended since 5th grade. I know what it feels like to not fit in at school, eat lunch alone and not get invited to birthday parties like all the other kids at school. My goal with my blog is to write about my experiences and to help families understand what their kids are experiencing from a personal view. I want to share many stories in my blog so parents will get their kids the help they need, and not just ignore what is going on with the hope that their children will outgrow their issues or pass through a phase in their life.
