On raising a son on the autism spectrum, progressive politics, pop culture, and coffee addiction.
I've tagged you in a meme.
It's off-topic, but I wanted your opinion on this issue...The Onion has a couple of videos with "an autistic reporter." I was hoping to get your response. I've been reading responses on-line, and some people in the ASD community find it hilarious and others find it insulting.
Totally off topic, but I'm rocking Up On The Ridge at the moment. Give my thanks to Bud for introducing us to Dierks.BB
It has taken me months to do it. Months, and many nights up too late, trying to read as the words blurred at 1am, 2am.... I have now read your entire blog from the first post to the most recent. I feel a certain sense of loss. Now I will have to wait until you post again before I have anything new to read. Now I have nothing to absorb when I sit up late into the night staring at the laptop screen waiting for Boo to fall asleep. But I have come to love you and Bud. You are treasured friends and I feel a certain connection to you. But it occurs to me that the connection is one-sided. So I invite you to come over to our blog and get to know us as well. We only have three months of blogging under our belt, but you have to start somewhere, right? And by the way.....thanks for helping to shape my view of autism, and of parenting such a special and delightful boy.
I've found the most helpful way to get the attention of our legislators is to have my daughters make an appointment to talk to them.Both of them have PPD and have 'intellectual disabilities'.But they've both been very successful based on the assistance they've rec'd frm an assortment of social service groups as well as their schools and, well, not to brag, their mom and dad.One of them is teaching nursery school--a real advancement for her.The other works at a Wawa. We fight the loss of services and are active in our community but so few are!As important OUR DAUGHTERS ARE ACTIVISTS TOO. I encourage all parents to carve out just one day a month (Yes I know it seems impossible some times..been there, done that) but try to, because it's your child's future at stake with every vote to decrease spending. I've found that what I taught by example when the girls were young was the most effective way to get my message across. Will get off my soap box now. TY
