A speech communications major at the University of Maine at Orono, Derek has always
been comfortable speaking to an audience. Since 2012, Derek has hosted a Saturday
morning radio talk show on WLOB 1310AM in Portland, Maine. His show can be heard
online at www.derekvolkshow.com and through podcasts available on iTunes and
Derek and Dylan wrote the book Chasing The Rabbit. The title is a metaphor for Dylan being represented as the greyhound and the rabbit representing 'normal'. Dylan can see whats normal, knows what is looks like but it is always just out of reach. He wants it so badly, but he just can't catch it.
Advice: Do the best you can and to encourage all of your child's special interests.
Recommended Resource: Bring someone who is not emotionally connected to your child when you go into your school for an IEP meeting or a teacher conference.
