Imagine all the people living life in peace

In this moment I find myself longing for a peaceful world not only for myself but for all mankind. I’m not talking about living like a hermit or being a recluse on some far off island. What I want is more peace in my life.
Recently, I had this overwhelming feeling of being bombarded by negativity; it comes at you from every direction. The news in general is negative. In fact everything I read has a damaging effect on my peace of mind. I hate turning on the news, because I know I’m going to fall into this pessimistic trap. It is emotionally exhausting!

Parent Involvement-Essential....

Throughout the years I have realized the importance of the parent involvement. In the early years, my son Jordan was placed in a regular classroom setting with the wide scope of all types of learners and learner’s needs.

Another healing art to consider for our children and ourselves.

Do we have comedians amongst us or are they taking words literally?

I have learned a few things about literal communication by having a child with autism. Take this example; I asked my son Jordan to go downstairs into the laundry room, and put the cloths that were just washed into the dryer. I assumed that he understood to place the cloths from the washer into the dryer and turn on the machine. Later, I headed down to the laundry room to fold the clothes that I thought would be dry.

Autism, My Son's Grade School Experience

Jordan’s grade school experience was absolutely fantastic. His conversation was limited to three word sentences. Talking to his peers was difficult. Jordan’s teachers, therapists and I worked together as a team guiding Jordan with expanding his Individual Educational Goals, continually pushing him to greater heights. We found out that placing Jordan in environments where he could be around other children was a wise choice.

Children With Autism Have Very Rigid Behaviors

Tonight I watched some of my family’s past home video. It took me back to a time in my life that was extremely stressful, lonely, tumultuous and rigid. Allow me to share a few experiences with you! Autism, in my household looked something like this:
Everything in our house has its place. The furniture, our cookie jar, delightfully framed family photographs sitting on each end table. I think you get the idea. If you were to move anything out of its original order, my child would have a tremendous meltdown. Sometimes these meltdowns could last over an hour!
