• • I am a single mom of four children. • • My son Jackson has very severe autism. • • Jackson is self injurious at times and needs a lot of supervision, way more than a single mom of four is able to provide. Some days are off the charts crazy for me- today is one of them. Starting at 6am I’ve been giving everything I can to keep this child safe and calm, it’s overwhelming, scary and draining. • • I hear so often “wow I don’t know how you do it all” • • I don’t know how I do it either. • • Jacksons dad passed away when he was just 8 weeks old, leaving me with very little emotional or financial support. The journey has been very intense at times but I’ve learned the importance of cutting myself some slack and shifting my mindset to search for positives rather than focus on “negatives” or limitations. • • If you ever cross paths with a mom who looks frazzled, overwhelmed or depressed and you notice that her child seems a bit ‘different’ please don’t say “ I don’t know how you do it”. Walk up to that mom and tell her she’s doing an amazing job, tell her that you see her holding it together and send her love. Everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about and some of us are knee deep in the trenches giving everything we have of ourselves and then some. • • God bless the people who have chosen to work with children who have disabilities, God bless the respite workers, the special ed teachers, those who take underpaid jobs to make a difference and who make themselves available to give parents a much needed break. I see you, I love you and I bow to you for all that you do.
Mohamed has is 2 years old and has autism. He doesn't talk and interact well with others, but he loves to watch ABC songs. A few weeks ago, we gave him a pen and to our surprise, he started writing the alphabet all in order. He is my little sunshine and I'm very proud of him.

When my son sadly watched through the fence saying "Want to play this. Want to play this." A part of me wanted to fall prey to victim mentality and feel bad because he couldn't play with the typical kids. But I decided that no matter what it takes, if he wants to play, he'll play. I'm about to start looking for special needs programs in the area... And if there are none, then we will just do it as a family.

Just found these at Tjmaxx for Mason! He loves these magnetic tiles! What a great find!

Algunas veces es necesario activar el plan B, y no hay problema, nos adaptamos! Para eso lo tenemos. Tavi tuvo una pequeña crisis ayer en el camping y no forzamos nada para quedarnos, nos regresamos a la casa. En principio activamos el plan B para ayudarlo a regular rápido su situación, pero también, en el fondo, somos padres y queremos darle una lección. Tavi comenzó a alejarse en el mar, quería ir hacia las piedras donde estaban Gusi y Pablo, le ofrecimos ayuda, le ofrecimos la alternativa de ir por el camino correcto y acompañado de su papá, él estaba enfocado en lograr llegar al extremo de ese rompeolas, solo, sin salvavidas y por el mar, era inaceptable a su manera. Al detenerlo comenzó su crisis que en parte quizás, nuestra mente por esas ganas de “normalizar” la situación, la intenta interpretar como una pataleta o berrinche por llevarnos la contraria. Ya en el camino de regreso todo estaba bien, repetimos muchas veces que regresaríamos a un plan similar al día siguiente y así lo hicimos, cumplimos la promesa con la esperanza de que quede grabado de alguna manera en su cabecita. . . . #asd #autismom #autism #autismus #autismo #undiaalavez #unpasoalavez #autismparents #camping #integracionsensorial #meltdown
This was Iman's 2nd visit to Miri & each experience has been empowering. Again I use that word as I just can't describe it any better 🙌🏻 Representing #teamaof in Miri & being part of the #aofoilingcommunity has been a life changing experience & this one the most memorable YET! Not only was this the 1st time being part of organising an event of this volume but I also had the opportunity to share on a topic so close to my heart, AUTISM 💙 . 4 autism parents sat down in a forum to share our stories on how doTERRA Essential Oils helped our family on day to day basis. It's never easy sharing my journey without being emotional, but knowing how it can help others gave me that extra push. A smile can mean a thousand words, don't u agree? . . #heartfelt #empowerment #persevere #faith #oilsharing #autismforum #autismparents #zairasautismfamily #singlemom #oilsharing #doterramiri #doterrasarawak #doterrafera #essentiallyferaaof #aofteammiri #teamaof #syukuralhamdulillah 💕
Bennett tossing a football with his PeePaw. .. Funny thing is this isn’t his most spectacular stuff. I just happened to have my phone out and was filming. And it was hot. Right conditions and the right ball and he can zip a pass 20-25 yards on the money. . He’s intuitive too. If someone is trying to cover someone he is throwing to he wil throw to a spot that the defender can’t reach. It’s uncanny. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #autism #asd #autismlife #autismawareness #autismdad #autismdads #autismoms #autismfamily #autismfamiliessticktogether #autismparents #autismacceptance #specialneedsdad #specialneeds #specialneedsparent #braintumor #epilepsy #infantilespasms #traumaticbraininjury #intellectualdisability #grandparents #backyardfootball #prouddad #thankful #mysonthefootballplayer

We’ve waited such a long time to hear this beautiful voice! He’s so happy that he can say “Thomas” and isn’t shying away from practicing it on his own. As you can see, he’s saying it pretty much perfect. We’re over the moon!!! 😭 Yesterday he read “Happy Birthday” from a birthday hat. Last night he had an actual conversation with Mamí, it was incredible. She asked a series of questions and he responded naturally–a proper back and forth. Over the last few weeks he’s just exploding with words and this morning I caught him trying to sing along to something. Of course, the second I tried to catch it on video he stopped ha. I hope a few of you can find as much inspiration in this as we have.

We all know a little support and encouragement goes a long way and some of us may not have the support we need. After a long stressful week we may need a little uplifting or we may want to share some of the small victories we had this week that no one else may understand. So every Sunday let’s drop a few words of encouragement or celebrate these small victories from throughout the week with our fellow #autismparents ... #autismmom #autismmommy #autism #autismawareness #tylerstreasurechest
These two running for 15 minutes, playing tag and chasing each other. Zach's reward after all of that exercise- the swing😉 #autismparents #asd #physicalfitness #family #fun #sunshine #outdooractivity #autism #autismawareness #autismo
Remember, it's easy to focus on all the areas we want to "fix". It's understandable to want the best for your children, but remember to always look at the present...the here and now. What are they doing well today? How far have they come? • • • • • • #autismmom #autismmommy #autismny #autismbrooklyn #autismnewyork #autismnyc #autismmoms #autismmomsunite #aumazing #autismlove #autismworld #autismrocks #autismstars #autismspeaks #autismspeak #autismproud #autismmomma #autismpride #autismkid #autismangel #autismfamily #autismday #autismquotes #autismparent #autismparents #autismisreal #autismsupport #supportgroups
Hari ini membawa #zhillaqeel keluar rumah, bermain dengan tangga untuk pembangunan koordinasi skil motor kasarnya. Alhamdulillah dia tiada masalah untuk turun naik tangga. Apa yang sangat membanggakan adalah dia mula mengira. Selaku seorang budak autism dan non-verbal, ia adalah satu pencapaian yang baik. Pemerhatian saya, Zhill lebih mudah belajar menggunakan bahasa Inggeris jika dibanding dengan Bahasa Melayu. Semoga dipermudahkan. #zhillASDjourney #Zhill #autismparents #autismmalaysia #autism #autismawareness
👌💙💙💙Isn't this just the truth everyone? Sharing the hard load, coming together in the spirit of understanding, support and upliftment, just makes such a difference imho. This connection is powerful and it can help save us from the stresses of isolation, judgment, or feeling that no one "gets" this caregiving life. We are stronger together. 💪💪💪 wepersist Follow: @AutismAmerica.support_ to see more amazing things Thank you so much #autism #autismo #autismmom #autisme #autismspeaks #autismawareness #autismfamily #autismlife #autismlove #autismo 💙 #autismacceptance #autismu #autismdad #autismmemes #autismawarenessmonth #autismsupport #autismparents #autismparent #autismjourney #autismteacher #autismwarrior #autism_lovers #autismspectrum #autismmoms #autismawarenessday #autismrocks #autismdads #autismspectrumdisorder #autismkids #autismwalk
It is easy to become overwhelmed with your concerns about what the future may hold, but painful emotions are only natural. Be calm and just accept it. Contact a reputable centre for a thorough assessment and evaluation of the child. #ASD #AutismFacts #AutismParents #saudiarabia
We would like to thank again Iman @adamsautismfamily & Steph @essential.oil.stephanielim for coming all the way down from KL for this oil sharing class.

Ok so i know this is dramatic but my 17 year old aspie kid walked the dog all on his own. When I hugged him and told him I was so proud of him he called me an hysterical woman.
