My son is almost 10,and I understand the guilt we feel as parents.
Parents do need a break for sure,and maybe our children want to live in a group home.
My son does not speak,but I can see where being around me all the time is annoying..lol
Do not feel bad,for placing her in a a group home.
If you are like me and many other parents maybe a group home can provide her with more attention and activities.
Have you looked into day treatment programs?
It takes a village to raise a child and a exceptionally large one to raise kids w/special needs.
This agency is awesome: http://www.independentlife.com
They helped me figure out services.
