Went to buy milk today and noticed my highway dept. put 2 signs up by my house that I requested. Does anyone else have a street sign? My daughter is a runner and it makes me nervous as she gets older

No, my kids have a variety of disabilities including autism, so I am not sure which of the options we would post for sure.  The autism is important, but so is the downs and maybe for my kids the hearing impaired child that won't even hear a car could be the biggest factor.  I don't know yet.  And depending on how close they put them to the home, I am not sure I want to advertise we have so many sn kids at the house - easy targets.  I just haven't decided.  Once they are up, they are up so I'm thinking it through.  I do think they are a good thing.  I also hear they can be a bad thing if used for the wrong reasons (not meaning by the parents but perpetrators.)  How far from your house did they put them?  Like right in your yard or top and bottom of street?

I live on a military base. I think they only do hearing impaired child signs, not autistic child. I wish we could get speed bumps outside my house. The speed limit is 15, but people go 30-35 all the time. It scares me. My 3 year old is a runner at times and has had a couple of close calls.

I think it's odd that it says "autistic child", instead of "child with special needs". I could be nitpicking, but I think the diagnosis in the sign is a little odd and not as cost effective as a more general term.

I would have the same concerns as you, Momof4.
