Working with Your School to Help your Child with Autism


Your child with autism can be rapidly integrated into a mainstream classroom by working with your school to help your child with autism. You can do this by making sure you have an IEP in place. An Individualized Education Plan documents what services your child will receive when in school.

These services can include para educator support, occupational therapy, speech therapy, modified work plans, communication devices, and many other types of therapies and support systems. Your child will spend many hours at school.

Developing a good relationship with your school district is essential for the long term success of your child with autism.

Social Media

I was the absolute worst in social media, so bad it hurts to think about it. Everything I am offline, I am online, I do not enjoy hiding and pretending I'm something I'm not, but I still had work to do in being social.

Now, I'm enjoying social media all for much different reasons.

Social media to me, is a lot like real life in terms of being social. For me, I have the tendency of speaking from the mind; hard to keep my thoughts to myself, and that ended up hurting me and getting me in trouble. It was bad; the first parts of using social media, way before I started writing a book that is. So I just gave up on it and played video games.

Social media now, I am able to speak from the mind and heart but taken to a much different approach as to finding and discovering things that spark interest and saying something about that in the lines of compliments. In Twitter, I use it for the news. Dairy Queen announcing the return of S'mores Blizzard is news to me! Or when there are new music...

Dance

"How does it feel to get your work done?"

"I feel like dancing!"

I love dancing! Been doing it since I was a toddler. Why is it so important?

It's another form of communication! I never knew how to form words when it comes to social interactions, so instead, dancing is one of the things I would do to communicate in a way; A unique way to bond with someone or with other people when there are people to dance with.

One challenge I had was loud music, and there are a lot of loud moments when it comes to dances, learning about people coming together to dance, I challenged myself to handle the noises so I can dance with others! Sure would do just about anything just to spend time with people in my peer group, and the dances was a great example on what I would do to have a good time being with others while doing one of my favorite activities, and that is to dance.

Today, I still enjoy a good dance here and there. Sometimes when I hear good news or anything positive that someone told me, I...

Why We Talk

Everyone in the world can not talk except for humans. Parrots talk, but they don’t use real words to carry out messages to one another using sentences.
In cartoons, it’s fun to hear the animals talk or any other thing that talks as well, but sometimes when they talk, they seem human.


I think that because we talk, we are able to change the world with ideas for the future using verbal communication. Animals in real life can not use verbal communication, instead they use their instincts to direct them through the ways of life. Honey bees have been busy for a long long time, and over a thousand years they still make their honey.
Let me tell you something over PG-13, when animals mate, they either reject by walking away, or they let the males produce. Humans mate when we ask for it, but instead of rejection like the animals, the females give the males a huge slap in the face when she doesn't want it. Well maybe not a big slap, but something hurtful like that.


We are...
