John, I love the anology you made between examining problems at work and applying it to work! Here is a nice article I came across today...I am sure most of us have read ones like it before but sometimes it helps to read it again...http://ilslearningcorner.com/2015-12-why-new-years-increases-child-anxiety-anxious-kids/ I think this Integrated Learning Website has some great resources for helping children with special needs. This article also mentions another website called gozen.com which is devoted to helping with childhood anxiety. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet, but I love to share good resources.

I was with my wife and my three sons, who aged from six down to two, when we met Jack at the adoption agency. Knowing that he would need open heart surgery at six months, we hoped for the best and decided that no matter how much time we had with him, we would make the most of it. That was nineteen years ago.
Jack has Down syndrome. He's usually a pretty happy guy. He loves to make others laugh and he's the first one to dry a tear. The thing I admire most about Jack is that he has his priorities straight. He lives for today. Every night when I come home, he asks me how my day was. If my response is positive, he gives me a "GOOD JOB, DAD! along with a knuckle bump. On days when I respond to his query with a negative retort, he tells me he's sorry and; "Try again tomorrow! I'm convinced that if during this exchange I ever told Jack that it was the worst day ever, that we lost our ten biggest customers, and would be out of business within a month, that he would tell me he was sorry and then ask if I would like some ice cream. I could only see myself responding to that in one way; "Sure, buddy. Why not? While the credit card is still working, let's go get some ice cream."
It's not just me. In our small mountain community, I'm known as Jack's dad. Everyone who shops at our local grocery store knows Jack and it's all the poor managers can do to keep the lines moving when customers visit with Jack as he bags their groceries. Actually, Jack is performing his dream job. I always envisioned him working in our family business where we could build a job around his abilities, but that isn't what he wanted. Jack wanted to bag groceries. He always thought that was an awesome job. A kind manager who had his own priorities straight, made Jack's dream a reality. Even so, there is not a customer who goes through Jack's line whose day is not brightened.
Get your priorities straight
Our high school track team decided to include any kids with Special Needs who wanted to participate on their team. Jack is one who was anxious to participate. We almost can't get his track uniform off of him long enough to launder it. Just before a recent meet, Jack pepped up the team telling them to "Run fast and jump high!
...
Jack was elected Prom King at his Junior Prom and was first attendant at Homecoming. There is no doubt that my son has been surrounded by some very incredible and selfless people who love to see him shine. I will take nothing away from them and I would bow at their feet. Even so, Jack inspires others.
