A Quick Post.....

I just want to share with you some of the things that I've been doing this month.  Hopefully, I'll write a longer post in the next few days going into more detail of how I'm spending my Autism Awareness Month, but here's a short view.

First of all, this is the video I made.  It was supposed to be done AGES ago, but I just haven't had the time or the oomph to get it done.  But I got it done in time for World Autism Awareness Day.  Please feel free to share this with others!  I want everyone to see that Autism isn't such a horrible just is.  But it something that needs to be understood and accepted.  Ignorance helps no one.

Secondly, I contacted Parents Magazine's goody blog shortly before the start of the month.  I wanted to know if they were doing their Voices Of Autism again this year like they have for the last couple of years.  They told me that they weren't but they would be happy to accept a story from me.  And here's what I sent them.  My story was published today.

So, that's it, in a nutshell.  I hope everyone is having a good start to Autism Awareness Month!


  1. Hi- I guess I just want to send you some good vibes. I have a 9 yr old with serve Autism. I found your blog googling away for my sister. My sister had b/g twins who will be 3 in June both diagnosed with Autism this month. It's no picnic. Thank you for your thoughts.

    1. I'm sorry she is going through this. It is EXTREMELY hard in the beginning, but as time goes you find that it's just "normal". Between getting over the shock and just getting used to the new "routine", things just seem to magically go from being too much to what we considering just part of the every day. I wish your sister all the best of wishes as she is starting this journey. She is fortunate to have you looking out for her. I'm sure she will be leaning on you for a while as you have already "been there". You and she should feel free to read what we go through. Everything I post is 100% honest and the way I see things.

  2. Australia has much to offer to the world. family first have become one of the most stable and prosperous nations on earth, but with privilege comes responsibility and the way family first rise to meet these responsibilities will ultimately determine if family first truly are a great nation.

  3. Autism changes you forever my son was diagnosed back in 1997, he has come a long way since then and now speaks publicly about autism. Visit his site

  4. Autistic Children usually undergo a combination of organized education & instructions, speech, occupational and behavior modification therapy. Each method differs for every child and is intensive ( 30-40 hours each week until the child is a teenager ). However, numerous of these children will never be able to turn into self-sufficient beings in their adult lives and simply will live in professional home care centers.
