Today was the first day in regular school, I was asked what I expected for this new phase, a small question that I was left without answers, despite having many goals. 💙 💙 💙 Hoje foi o primeiro dia na escola de ensino regular, me perguntaram o que eu esperava para essa nova fase, uma pequena pergunta que fiquei sem respostas, apesar de ter muitos objetivos. 💙 💙 💙 #autismo #tea #autism #autismobr #autismobrasil #autista #asperger #autismawareness #amor #autismlove #autismmom #tdah #transtornodoespectroautista #autismspectrumdisorder #sindromededown #autismoamor #psicologia #a #autismspeaks #autismfamily #terapiaocupacional #inclusion #autismworld #autismparents #autisme
Australia’s getting ready to go back to school. Sensory Sensitivity can make trying on new school shoes ( and uniform) really difficult. Curious to hear what works for your child!#autismparents #sensorysensitivity #back to school #shareyourautismtoptip
We’re not going to lie... Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meetings can be stressful! But we’re here to share some tips with our families. TIP #1 : Take advantage of those parent teacher meetings. In ABA, we stress the use of of proactive strategies, so let’s start with this one. Communicate with your child’s teacher on a regular basis (meetings, emails, communication logs) so that you are informed of your child’s progress throughout the year instead of getting a summary after several months. Meeting with your child’s teacher will also ensure that you’re both on the same page before the IEP. [This will be a time saver too because we all know 2-3 hours just isn’t enough!] #autism #aba #iep #iepmeeting #abatips #autismparents #spectrumbehavioraltherapies
It's here... It's been a labor of love, creating this website, and new business. I had no idea what my heart was holding onto. Along came a beautiful life coaching cousin of mine, and opened my eyes. My greatest desire is to provide to other autism mama's, what I wish I had when our lil man was first diagnosed. I wanted a community of like minded mama's to connect with. I also wanted someone to help guide me through the first steps when I didn't know where to turn. If you know anyone that might be new to the autism diagnosis, please send them to the site. If I can help one mama, I will be over the moon. . . . . #autismmom #autismsupport #community #autismawareness #autismanswers #autismspeaks #autismfamily #specialneedsmom #differentnotless #ilovesomeonewithautism #buildingfriendships #connection #support #autismparents #autism #asd #autismlove #autismstrong #autismacceptance #autismspectrum #autismsupport #autismcommunity #autismlife #autismwarrior #specialneeds #specialneedsfamily #autismadvocate
Many parents find it hard to engage in an extended conversation with their child on the spectrum. Although this can be discouraging, we recommend putting in the effort to make conversation as much as possible. Try focusing on a topic or thing your child particularly enjoys and build from there. #AutismAcceptance #ABATherapy

Big A got up the bus and little A decided he wanted to write the months. The attitude to learning rather than aptitude is far more important. He may and or may not score straight As but his attitude and effort is an A. Values which are important for the generation when many jobs will be taken away by machines. #autismacceptance #autismmoms #autismspectrumdisorder #autism #autismlove #lifelonglearning #thetherapyroom #resilience #speechdelay #autismrocks #autismparents

Idk who made this but Julia is the cutest Sesame Street character ever. It's nice to see autism represented in children's television because kids all over can learn to be accepting of each other. 😌💕✨ #juliasesamestreet ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ #neurodiversity #autismparents #autismacceptance #autism #autismmom #stimlife #respectthestim #autismlove #actuallyautistic #lifeandautism #aspergers #aspergerssyndrome #kawaii #pastelvibes

We are going to have to chat about this.... We have been at it since thanksgiving. 3 days? 🙄 We aren’t perfect, but we definitely follow guides and research. It’s things like this that set parents up for disappointment and failure. Especially when your child is non verbal and doesn’t have a good communication system. I’m going to roll my eyes again. 🙄😂💙💚
Seven years. 3 children in 3.5 years {one with special needs}, family quandary, PPD, multiple surgeries, financial strain...on top of standard, normal family of five stress. It’s been one hell of a ride so far. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #anniversary #seven #sevenyears #wedding #marriage #winter #winterwedding #threekids #parents #weddingcake #brideandgroom #momofthree #rollercoasterlife #postpartumdepression #ppd #bipolardisorder #autismparents #autism #differentnotless #raisinglexs
How does one test her new two-mic 🎙🎙 setup? ✌🏼By indulging her 14-YO J.R. in a 13:00 convo about reincarnation, with a focus on his quandary of how to tuck away his angel wings when he is in plain view. 👼🏼 🤷🏼‍♀️ Love him!

#historiadeautismo ¡Es hora del baño! 🛁 Les comparto como Rodri disfruta bañarse y como hago que ese momento sea especial. 1. Agua tibia, esto hará que lo relaje y tome una deliciosa siesta. . 2. Un espacio que le permita moverse y tener todo a su alcance. . 3. Juguetes y burbujas para hacerlo divertido. . 4. Pictogramas que le permitan entender la secuencia y el paso a paso para quedar limpio. . 5. Aprovecho a usar diferentes texturas, incluso lo dejo jugar un momento con el jabón. . La higiene personal es muy importante y debemos ayudar a nuestros hijos a alcanzar la autonomía al momento de bañarse 💙. . . #maternidadenredes #autismogt #autismmom #maternidadatipica #autismparents #autism #mihijoazul #mamaazul #maternidadreal #autismlove #autismlife #autismmoms
PACE | We had a better night's sleep yesterday and it did wonders for all of us, especially Yaseen. He was in such great spirit today, happy playing, interacting and full of life. I'm so grateful. His cold has developed into a nasty cough so he might have a disturbed night today but today was good. Even more so today was good for me too. Setting intentions in the new year is easily done but so much of my week is based on how Yaseen is doing. My to do lists and habits are constantly changing so the last week has been a bit of a downer because I couldn't get on with my stuff because I'm either feeling miserable or exhausted. This morning I decided to take advantage of his good mood and I did a quick work out and some yoga which instantly put me in a good mood. A quick speed clean of the house and shower and I was ready for the day. We had a meeting with our case worker, the educational psychologist and Yaseen's nursery teacher to discuss his Educational Health Care Plan (which fingers crossed we will be hearing about hopefully next week). Whilst going through the plan we had to discuss the different areas that we needed to work on such as, speech, social interaction, skills and so on. Each section was then broken down into targets and outcomes to be achieved by KS1. It was interesting because as a parent you want your child to be able to achieve everything possible but going through the plan made me realise how necessary it was for our children to go at their own pace. For example, during the meeting the case worker commented on one of the targets under emotional needs stating that Yaseen should be able to say if he is "happy" or "sad" by KS1. Sounds simple enough. His teacher interjected and said that from her experience children cannot always tell the difference between their emotions of which the educational psychologist agreed. I'll be honest I was bit confused but she explained that when a child is sad they wont always say "I'm sad because...." they'll usually be asked by the adult "are you sad because..." and the child would respond with yes or no.

F&J are 6 today!! 🎉🎁🎂🎈6️⃣ How on earth did that happen?? 🤯 It has gone so fast and yet feels like we've had them forever if that makes any sense! The boys woke up and opened 1 present each (any more than that would have probably created too much excitement just before school and might risk them having an unsettled day) then they skipped to school happily and had a good (and very giggly according to the T.A's) day, which included the whole school singing Happy Birthday to them in assembly apparently!! At home time they got to come home and open the rest of their prezzies then we went to their Grandparents house for a family tea and cake 🎂 They've had a fun day, although they're both still wide awake chatting away to each other as I write this 😖 so tomorrow might be a different story but we'll wait and see 😬😬💙💙 #autism #autismawareness #autismacceptance #autismparents #autismfamily #autismblog #autismuk #autismparent #autismmama #autismmum #autismmummy #autismmom #autistictwins #autismtwins #asd #asdtwins #asdparenting #asdparent #asdblog #senparenting #senmum #specialneedsparent #parenthood #parentingblog #parentingblogger #parenting #mumlife #mumblog #mumbloggeruk #mumblogger

Taken from yesterday’s outing. Another success at the restaurant even though he wasn’t interested in the onion rings or pretzel bites we got him. The server gave him a small container of pretzel salt and that really made his day. #autism #autismawareness #autismmom #autismus #autismfamily #autismlife #autismlove #autismparents #autismacceptance #autismdad #autismsupport #autismparent #autismwarrior #autismrocks #autismdads #autismmoms #autismkids #autismstrong #autismspectrum #autismjourney #autismstars #autismadvocate #autismspectrumdisorder #autismawarness #autismworld #autismcommunity #autismproud #autismisbeautiful #autism2019
In the crazy whirlwind that seems to be life lately, I’d like to take this lady’s 2019 motto of ”do more of what makes you happy” and run with it. Do one thing, no matter how small, each day that fills your own cup. You deserve it.

The other week she made me a foil heart and told me am the best mummy ever I am very fortunate and grateful to have a very loving and cuddly daughter, don’t get me wrong she can be very distant at time and want her own space but that’s understandable who isn’t and doesn’t sometimes. I’ve been told many times how can she be autistic if she affectionate and cuddly and me response is if you have a parent who is affectionate and cuddle your child to can also be affectionate and cuddly :) and I honestly feel that’s for us I am extremely cuddly and affectionate even with friends so how can she not be even with being autistic just cause someone is autistic doesn’t means they can have feel and experience/express these feeling s and emotions Everyone and every autistic is individual and beautiful #lovemygirl #educatingmychild #autismparents #asdfamily #autism #autismuk #autismfamily #youcanlovewithautism #youcanfeelbeingautistic
