Helpful Autism Resources

April is Autism Awareness Month (I’ve even seen it called “Autism Acceptance Month”), and each year I usually post my thoughts on Autism Awareness or experiences as a mother of a child on the Autism Spectrum. This year, though, I wanted to change it up a little to share a round-up of Autism resources. I […]

SimplyFun’s Autism Initiative

Having a child on the Autism spectrum, I love to hear about different things companies offer to those on the Autism Spectrum. I have enjoyed working with SimplyFun, and when they shared their Autism Initiative with me, I was definitely excited to learn more about it and share it! Disclosure: I am sharing information about […]

Light It Up Blue 2015 – What Autism Awareness Means to Me

It’s that time of year again to Light It Up Blue, and today is the day! April is Autism Awareness month. World Autism Awareness Day is April 2nd. Many people put up blue lights or wear blue – all to join Autism Speaks to shine a light on Autism by raising awareness. It begins April […]

2014 Holiday Gift Guide Sponsor Spotlight – Chewigem

In September my daughter and I had the chance to review some beautiful stylish sensory chewelry from Chewigem. We both have Sensory Processing Disorder and tend to chew on things for oral input. I had never considered something like chewelry for myself, though I definitely considered it not only for our daughter but our sons […]

Homeschooling Sensory Seekers

Day 2 of my 5 Days of Homeschooling with Special Needs is “Homeschooling Sensory Seekers.” Although our three children are very different in many ways they do all have one thing in common – sensory seeking. Our oldest is on the Autism Spectrum, and as you may know, many children on the Autism spectrum exhibit […]

Flummox and Friends review

Flummox and Friends is a show with a unique spin. It’s fun and quirky and covers some very important skills that most don’t. Social skills. In fact, they referred to them as the “unspoken rules,” and I honestly didn’t think about this until now, but they pretty much are! This is exactly why I was […]

Re-evaluations for Speech

Yesterday was the 6 month re-evaluation for the boys’ Speech Therapy. It’s a chance to re-visit their goals, see their progress, and possibly make new goals. Sometimes, though, it can mean ending their services. That isn’t always a good thing, either. So here is what is going on with our boys and their speech. Little […]
