It was another one of those nights when I couldn’t sleep. By 2am, one kid had woken up once, another twice, and I was wide awake from my efforts to get everyone back to sleep again. So, as I usually do, I Continue
just laid there in bed thinking. Sometimes I think about what to pack
the kids for snacks for camp. Or I wonder if I forgot to put the
laundry in the dryer. Sometimes I think about the long list of things I
haven’t been able to get to. This was one of those…

Last night I spent some time in the company of some amazing women. All mothers, all with school age kids under the age of 10, all of whom “get it”.
About a month ago, a friend and I had the idea to start a small support group. The original idea was for mothers or fathers of kids who are on the spectrum, and with the help of the school district, we Continue
reached out to parents to see if anyone wanted to meet, just to talk.
Our first meeting last month was so nice that…

Occasions, such anniversaries, are meant to be special. How can you add an extra touch to make that particular celebration even more memorable? Here are two options: you can go to a posh restaurants and spend 2 weeks of groceries on one meal, or you can do it at home. Dining at home doesn’t seem very special, let alone romantic, especially since you do it practically every day. But, as I recently found out, there are ways to create a unique and… Continue

I have been bothered lately with a heavy heart. So instead of carrying the pain around with me. I have decided to do what I could to help change peoples views. I'm hoping to help people see what I embrace
as a special gift.
I have had a few of my friends point out fact that my son is different
than most boys. To these people I ask you is that not rude to say? Were
you not taught any manners? What makes you normal and him not normal,

Recent visitors suggested I try to market our guest house to parents of Autistic children. Their child loved the animals and whole atmosphere of the farm. The parents were able to relax completely in the guest house and cook and do things whenever they wanted. They had been searching for 'hands on' activities for their child. He was able to feed the cows, visit the llama and bond with the goats. If anyone has any ideas how to target such an audience, I would greatly appreciate it
. Or if… Continue

Yes, you can. Here's how:
Vacation travel can feel like a long awaited, hard-earned reprieve from everyday demands. Expectations can be high. “We’re going to have a good time, damn it!!”
Good times and a successful vacation are possible especially if you approach planning mindfully. Understand that children express their needs through their behaviors.
When you adapt your plans by taking into account your children’s development, temperament,… Continue

Consider helping your slow-to-adapt child succeed by staying in one place, if possible, and enjoying those surroundings. For example, rent a cottage for a week or two so you minimize changes and new experiences don’t come at him too fast. Or move no more than every 3-4 days to keep change at a minimum. Being by a lake or a pool may be a good way to keep your child happy for hours.
Camping is another nice family adventure and is a low-cost way to settle in and… Continue

If you are planning a trip to a theme park, consider the following:
Spend one day there and the next at the pool. If that's not possible, give your overwhelmed child the break he needs. You will both be glad!
