Be mindful. Not all kids can verbally say “trick or treat”! I always say it for Maverick, but just a little reminder 😊 #autism101 #nonverbal #autismmom

Trabajaste tan duro gordo estas 4 semanas! Ya terminaste este intensivo! 🎓 felicidades 🎈🎊🎉a lo que sigue! 🤗🤗🤗 Una de las cosas que son bien difíciles con los niños con lesión cerebral, aparte de todos los retos que cada niño presente, es la falta de energía. Todo lo que hacen de terapias y tratamientos es como si nosotros tuviéramos entrenamientos diarios de alto rendimiento pero aparte en la noche nos pusieran a hacer cosas y no pudiéramos descansar bien. No es que Mario en la noche haga cosas sino que no se recuperan como nosotros es decir van cargando con cansancio acomunado un deficit de energía en otras palabras. Todo esto nos lo enseñaron lo de ABR y Filadelfia. Es cierto ni su respiración ni su metabolismo están al 100, así q toca descansar. 👌🏻✌🏻😘 estamos muy orgullosos de tu gordito 🥊

The one thing I learned is that despite him being non-verbal, I still needed to talk to him. The more I conversed with him, the more I started to see that he understood what I was trying to say. He can follow directions, he can answer questions, he can show me what he wants! And he will cover his ears when he’s tired of hearing me. He must have learned that one from his daddy. 😆#autism #autismmom #autismfamily #nonverbalautism #nonverbal #specialneeds #specialneedsparenting
The past two weeks have been hard. Work is a struggle. I am having a hard time finding my footing and forming a rythm in the class I'm in. Aside from a twilight scratch those are pinches made by tiny fingers Each mark is a word his brain wont let him speak. He is 3 and currently non verbal. Each pinch or bite is his way of saying, not now miss sarah I'm playing, I'm hungry, I dont want wait, waiting is hard, help me, this child is in my space. The marks, the stinging pinches, and even bites dont bother me it's all the frustration they represent for the child and me not being able to help. God I wish my dad was here to talk to. #autism #nonverbal #earlyintervention #autismawareness #childrenwithspecialneeds #developmentaldelays

Today is this gorgeous little girls 6th Birthday! ❤️🎂 Please wish Lilly a Happy Birthday in the comments below, and definitely read what her Mama has to say about her:
“When people ask me to describe my kiddo, I usually say: Lilly is so amazing! She loves to swim, is obsessed with Elmo, and is super super smart! She is a total athlete that will likely be a Ninja Warrior when she’s older. She is super beautiful (like a little model) and is very loving & affectionate. She loves mini marshmallows but can’t stand other sweets, and is a whiz with technology. Truthfully, I could go on and on about so many awesome qualities before I ever get to the one that many expect I would lead off with: That she happens to have “not yet verbal” autism. .
While I acknowledge her ASD does cause challenges for her, it is only one piece of a million things that make up this extraordinary little person, and definitely not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about her. Lilly is not defined by her challenges, just as neurotypical children have never been (and should never be) defined by theirs. She is silly, sassy, unique, and so much fun! As her mom, I will always be her biggest advocate and best friend, to ensure she is as happy and successful as she can be no matter what comes our way, and no matter what her diagnosis happens to be.” ❤️ - @afriendforlillybug
Be sure to give them a follow today, because before too long, this sweeties getting a Therapy Dog! 🐾 ❤️ @afriendforlillybug

It’s that time of year when walking anywhere takes 3 times as long due to the irresistible amount of leaves and sticks on the floor 😁
This morning was another meeting at school, this time to find out how Jude’s been getting on so far this term.
And after a restless night’s sleep where he kept waking up and grabbing at my arms, and making me run my nails back and forth across his hands, I decided to take advantage and let him miss the school bus and take him in myself.
I thought his disturbed sleep would make this morning difficult, but when we arrived he was full of smiles and happy to go in 😊
Then I got to meet with his new teacher, who was full of praise for how he’s settled in to his new class. He’s showing more interest in the other children, even the new kids in his class, and overall he’s much less anxious each day.
A couple of years ago Jude used to have to eat lunch in the classroom, the lunch hall was just far too overwhelming for him. Over time they made adaptations and worked out how to help him cope and ensure he was happy in there.
Today I watched a video of him happily sitting there sampling a plate of mixed salad, and another video of him sitting there once he’d finished, waiting for 7 minutes smiling and watching what everyone else was up to in the hall 😱
So Jude has had a great start, just like Tommy has. When I was leaving I looked out of the window down to the playground, convinced I could hear Tommy. And there he was, in his coat and wellies, bunny hopping from puddle to puddle, flicking the water as hard as he could, in his absolute element 😁
Life might be completely different than I could ever have imagined 10 years ago, but I have two boys who are happy at home and happy at school. Who could ask for more? ❤️
Okay!! So I guess, technically, this is my first blog post. My first post I think was more just me letting you all know my opinion on my autism, and on the autistic community as a whole. So here is the first blog, and I think it's a really important one! Today I took an exam. I got a C, and I told some of my classmates who I'm in a group chat with so they would know it wasnt too hard. Another girl, one who I'm not close with, said she got an A and it was a super super easy test. Dont get me wrong, I'm proud of her for doing so well in a hard class, but she said it very condescendingly. AUTISTIC PEOPLE ARE NOT STUPID, WE ARE ALL SMART IN VARYING LEVELS AND SUBJECTS!! This happens to be a subject I struggle with, but I still passed the exam! I am so proud of myself; I currently have all passing grades. Please, don't connect something like ASD with stupidity. "An autistic mind is a specialized mind." -Temple Grandin
"The eternal struggle for the right to be smart, and the priviledge to be stupid." - Me
Edit: I love friends!! Feel free to message me and we can become friends!

💕 Today, October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.
I have been pregnant 8 times and only 3 of those pregnancies have been successful.
I lost 2 babies before I was pregnant with Tristan, got pregnant pretty easily with Jackson and I lost 1 baby in 2006. At that time in my life, I didn't think I would have more children. Fast forward to 2008 and I had a new husband, new life. In our journey to have a baby together, I went through infertility treatment including 4 cycles of IVF and got pregnant with my Mia. She was a very wanted and loved baby girl that died when I was 16 weeks pregnant with her. A few months after losing her, I lost another baby. A few months after that loss, I became pregnant with Sophia & Samuel.
I have lost 5 sweet angels and each and every one of those angels has a special place in my heart.
Please take a moment today to remember all the precious babies lost and their families. If you can, hug a Momma today that lost her baby too soon.
Time goes by, life goes on, but we don't forget. Ever. "There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world."

ENTREVISTA DE EMPREGO
Quando a sua formação, experiência e até idade são as mesmas do seu concorrente, o único fator distintivo será a sua comunicação não verbal — a sua forma de vestir, de estar e de se maquilhar. Sim, é difícil aceitar esta verdade. Mas se aceitar este facto, vai poder preparar-se melhor e ganhar uma vantagem competitiva na próxima entrevista 😉
Existem erros comportamentais que cada um de nós faz todos os dias e que prejudicam a sua comunicação. Quais são? Como evitá-los? Descubra mais no próximo webinar 👉

„Brauchst du Liebe mein Schatz?“ - „Jaaaaaa!“ kam heute Morgen aus seinem Mund, als ich ihm diese Frage gestellt habe... .
Eigentlich genervt von dem ständigen an mir geklebe habe ich mir trotzdem vorgenommen, ihm zukünftig genau diese Frage zu stellen. Und nicht in die „Genervt-Falle“ zu tappen.
Tatsächlich hat es funktioniert und war gleichzeitig sooo süß.
Da saßen wir nun am Boden und haben 3 Sekunden gekuschelt und Liebe gegeben. Warum nur 3 Sekunden? Danach ist es schon wieder langweilig... So auch auf diesem Bild. Unsere Kleinen können oft noch nicht äußern, was sie brauchen. Jedoch wissen sie es meistens ziemlich genau. Kommunikation ist alles! Nicht nur in der Beziehung (zum Partner) sondern auch in der Beziehung (zum Kind). Gerade nonverbale Kommunikation verstehen selbst die Kleinsten. Nur wir haben es oft verlernt. Also haltet die Augen offen! Und danach eure Arme.... #beziehung #erziehung #nonverbal #kommunikation #kuscheln #liebe #sandstrand #urlaubmitkindern #sylt #strandkorb #sonnenuntergang
Family days can be quite difficult when you have a child with additional needs; you have to think about the unexpected all the time. Some times it works out well and other times it doesn’t, but it’s about giving it a go and seeing how you fair. This time last year, if we had attempted a day out where Theo struggled, I would’ve avoided going out again for a long while after that and I would’ve beaten myself up about not thinking about every eventuality. As time has gone on, I’ve realised that’s just not possible and some days are a win and some days aren’t. We went for a day out on Saturday and Theo was completely overwhelmed by it all and he really struggled, but instead of getting stressed about it, I soaked it up, I enjoyed the glimpses of fun that Theo did have and marked it down as another experience. First and foremost, we have to be kind to ourselves on this journey ❤️ So, here’s to Monday and a fresh new week for new experiences ❤️
I love this quote inspired by Charles Darwin and one I try to live by every day. During a significant personal crisis in 2008, I failed to live by this mantra, believing I could control what was happening. I thought that by being the fittest and literally thinking myself into believing another reality, I could transcend my current situation. The one where I could stay. The one where I didn’t have to change or grow or admit I made a mistake. The one where I could blame everyone else and let my ego flourish. I’d worked hard to get to where I was and struggled to understand why the Universe was ripping that out from underneath me. The loss wasn’t on my terms and it certainly wasn’t comfortable. Turns out all that was needed was for me to go with the flow. To change, to fully embrace my current circumstance, to drop all the fake shit, to drop the old vision and embody the new. I had to listen to my heart but the price was massive...I’d have to suffer the death of my own ego. Ouch! That crisis taught me that human beings have incredible perception, we see our reality really well and deep down, we know truth. Where we fail is in our ability to embrace that change quickly so we can live in complete alignment with our new reality. Instead, we choose not to trust....we avoid the pain by busying ourselves and expending energy in all the wrong areas. We cling to dreams that are no longer realistic, we spend money we don’t have, we divert energy from loved ones to bitter ones, we stare at black walls instead of blue skies. Our time and energy would be more wisely spent continuing the flow the Universe has created for us. Kicking the can down the street is not a long term plan. If we want to survive, we need to adapt to the incoming and outgoing tides as quickly as we can.

We have an official diagnosis 🎉🎉🎉 9 months of waiting, assessments and appointments. To us it doesn’t change a single thing but in terms of his schooling and support network as well as our support network it opens up so many doors and makes it all that much easier. Very good day 🎉 #autism #toddler #autismacceptance #nonverbal
