Happy 4th Birthday to our sweet P! When you came into our lives you took hold of our world & wrapped it around your teeny fingertip. A boy so special to us, and to this family. We needed you - to help us learn, to teach us patience, to broaden our mindset, to help us grow together, to learn a different path, to grow a love deeper than we ever knew possible. Your laugh, smile & sense of self brings us so much joy. You are truly one of a kind. 💙✨

Yesterday was his hundred today at school. My little man has been School 100 days and has come so far and his TK class. shout out to my friend who sent me this awesome picture because she volunteers during computer lab. I'm sad sometimes that I don't get to see the growth in class because I'm not there but I have to learn to accept that there are some things in life that he'll go through without me. #inclusivity #inclusiveeducation #asd #asdawareness #seesullyjump #boyswithhats #boysofinstagram

Posted @withregram@wholepicturehome Christians! The vaccine industry is built upon aborting babies. The vaccine agenda is an anti-life depopulation agenda that aims to lie, kill and destroy. Go to this post by @sierrabeach and hear vaccine scientist Dr. Stanly Plotkin for yourself, who testified under oath of his vile vaccine science. Truth is truth. And yes, there are a million things I'd rather be thinking about and doing, too. But I will not stay silent and perpetuate the absolute ignorance of and/or callous disregard of other believers and the church at large. 💙💙💙 Babies are being murdered. Children are being experimented on and damaged. The suffering in my body is more than anyone should ever have to endure. I was one of them, I am badly damaged. Families are being destroyed. Who will care for all the adults with autism? Do you really care about us? Wake up! Sound the alarm! Be brave. Wake up. Wake up. Wake up. Wake up!!!

“Jeez they were rude 🤨!” Have you ever thought that when you’ve met someone, served someone...been served by someone? Maybe they were... but maybe they were autistic? My 12 year old son, Cam, was spending his Christmas money recently on a new headset for his PC. He walked into the shop, walked straight to the counter and said “um do you have ___ headset?”. I can’t remember the name of the particular headset, but I remember he didn’t say hello, didn’t say please or thank you. I nudged him and quietly said “say hello!!” and he did. When the guy returned with the headset Cam didn’t say a word, he handed over his cash and was about to walk away without even saying thank you or goodbye. Again, I nudged him to remind him and he said “oh, thank you”... he legitimately forgot to say it. The point I’m getting at is that he isn’t intentionally rude. Sometimes he forgets what’s socially appropriate because it doesn’t come naturally. Especially when his mind is focussed on something else, like how excited he was to get home to try out the new headset. What happens in another couple of years when he’s shopping alone and I’m not there to nudge him? Well, people are going to think “jeez, he’s rude 🤨” aren’t they? Or are they? Let’s change people’s initial perceptions! - Tam #AutismAwareness #ASDAwareness #ASD #Autism #AutismSpectrum

Frozen 2 here we come... date day with my boy before he starts school next week 😱💙. He chose to use Brave oil blend today. It’s from the US kids range. I love that his intuition chose this one. I always let him choose his own oils. Kids know themselves best! Let them lead the way. We applied 45 mins ago. And now just re-applied. Going to the cinemas is a difficult task for anyone with ASD. It’s loud and echoey, it’s bright screen and lots of people. I make a conscious effort to plan the trips properly with oils, snacks, chewy necklace and his headphones. He also uses cuddles with me to help comfort him. Deep pressure is something very soothing for him. We try to go to the movies a couple of times a year. The more he experiences things like this that aren’t easy, the easier it will get for him in time! #doterra #essentialoils #doterraessentialoils #brave #uskidscollection #asd #asdawareness #autism #frozen2 #OT #sensoryneeds #essentiallyyourbestself #beyourbestself

4 smiling Healy's. 😊😊😊😊 This was a week 🤦‍♀️ And its only hump day 🙈😅 It was a rough Monday and a very sad Wednesday morning, but the kindness I have been shown this week has brought the smiles back to all our faces. To anyone who has taken the time to send a lovely supportive message then I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Even after the awful trolling I still believe in the power of people. There is so much good in my life and you all are part of it. So thank you.❤ * Kirsty's assessment was tough. It was sad to see it all on paper and know you're child is so behind and different but we are beyond proud of her. We'll take whatever comes and make sure she is always taken care of and getting what she needs to remain the amazing and happy dolly she is. I'll have the official report next week which will no doubt knock me again, but she's still the same girl we adore. Nothing will ever change that. We may be on a different path, with more bumpy roads... but we have the 2 best tour guides. ❤ #lifeupsidedown #autismspectrumdisorder #intellectualdisability #bekind #asdawareness

Je recommande chaleureusement ce MOOC sur l'autisme: ✅Mon but était de découvrir le TSA dans le but de pouvoir mieux accompagner les familles concernées. J'ai pu acquérir : ✅des connaissances générales sur le TSA, son historique, l'état des recherches actuelles, les critères diagnostiques actuels, les enjeux d'un diagnostic précoce, les signes précoces, ... ✅découvrir comment se déroule tout le processus du bilan, ce qui m'a permis d'être sensibilisée à l'impact sur les familles concernées. ✅une sensibilité de ce que ces familles peuvent traverser comme épreuve dans ce parcours de vie et de prendre la mesure du temps écoulé entre les premières inquiétudes et la pose d'un diagnostic. Merci Kinesiologue.ch - Anne Erard Bonvin grâce à qui j'ai découvert le concept des MOOC merci de tout coeur pour ce partage d'information, je suis fan aussi ! 🙏 #kinesiologie#tsa#asd#awareness#asdawareness#autisme#bienveillance#accompagnement

#inspirations ? Well, #indieauthorsunited #photochallenge , I take my inspiration from the things around me: a chance moment when a certain song was playing at the swimming pool led to the original idea for 'Rescue Me', and for my poems, I'm inspired by Gillian Clarke's approach of casting my mind back to a moment, immersing myself in the memory, and letting my feelings come out. Some of my strongest, most prevailing memories involve incidents relating to the process of first accepting, and then coping with, my son's autism. The response from other parents when these poems were published in the 'Quality of Mersey' anthology and 'Motherdom' magazine has been wonderful, so I aim to continue to give parents of children with ASD a voice in the future. #asdawareness #autismaware #youinspireme #inspired #rescueme #soulmusic #swimmingpool #merseyside #river #poetry #verse

Not organizing related, but something I find to be helpful so thought I'd share. . 💖SWIPE to see more. . I have a 4 year old with HF ASD and she can be quite a handful. (That's an understatement.) She's very active and never stops. She rocks back and forth and sings songs all day long. I love her to death, but her screams can drain me!!!😩 She will scream at the top of her lungs when something isn't how she needs it to be. Constantly throwing tantrums. My other kids never had behavioral issues so all of this is pretty new to me. . This book @b_is_for_breathe_childrensbook is great and I highly recommend it to anyone who knows a child living with ASD. . It shows the child how to cope with fussy and frustrating feelings. It will inspire kids to discuss their feelings, show positive behaviors, and practice calm down strategies.👍🏻 . A is for art tells children to draw a picture to express their feelings. B is for breathe, says to take a deep breath. C is for count to 10 while thinking about feeling calm. D for dance to express pleasure through motion and so on.. . My 6 year old started reading it to my 4 year old about a week ago, and now whenever she screams and throws her tantrums about something, (like a toy not bending the way she wants it to..😒) we show her the book, and my daughter will start reading it to her. She'll walk over and start rocking while she reads it. She usually repeats what my 6 year old just read, but lately she has been actually listening as she reads it to her!(Progress!)👏🏼 I tell her to do what the book says and she'll take a deep breathe.😌 After doing so she pretty much forgets what her issue was and chills out lol I love it! . It would be great for anyone, but highly recommend for a special needs teacher or parent!!🙌🏼 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #organizing #professionalorganizer #autism #autismawareness #awareness #asd #aspergers #autusmspectrum #autismspeaks #momproblems #specialneedamom #asdawareness #adhd #teachers #teacherstyle #teachersofinsta #specialneeds #specialneedsteacher #lifewithkids #childrensbook #kidsbooks #booksofinsta #selfcare #momlife #momof4 #selflove #positivevibes #manifest #kidsbook #lifewifekids

𝗜 𝘄𝗶𝘀𝗵 𝗜 𝗸𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘄𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝘀𝗺𝗮𝗹𝗹... When Cal was 3 he was registered with special educational needs. As a summer baby, he was starting school just 2 months after turning 4. Sentences were two words long, lots of repetition, and no reciprocal conversation. He wasn’t ready, let alone for a mainstream school. But, he was a summer baby, and a boy, being lazy, give him a year he’ll be fine. So, three months on from this picture my son started his schooling journey, where it all began to unravel. Tomorrow, little one is off school for the day so that we can take a look around a prospective school, specifically for children on the spectrum. The nerves in my tummy are like the ones I had 5 years ago when I believed his school journey was beginning. In reality, our school journey potentially starts tomorrow.... mixed bag of emotions but positive mindset is engaged ✨ #asdmum#asdreality#sen#senschooling#autism#autismawareness#asdawareness#asdparenting#senchallenges

When an individual is diagnosed with Autism, they are given a ‘level’. Now, I’d like people to know that this level doesn’t mean how ‘severe’ they are, it means what kind of support they require in their day to day life. Let’s talk about level 3 and what is often thought as the ‘most severe’ level of ASD diagnosis. This really gets under my skin, as it makes me feel like other people see my child is tainted/unwell. When really they just need extra support to help them through life. Level 3 - requires very substantial support, the persons social skills, repetitive behaviours and communication affect their day to day life. So, what does this look like for Zaiden? Well, first of all, he only started communicating functionally when he was just shy of 4. I spent the first almost 4 years of his life guessing what he needed, which could often result in some very sad moments for him (and I) when I couldn’t guess correctly. Take a moment to try and Imagine what it would feel like to try get out how you feel or what you need, but you cannot talk or write to express those feelings. Awful right? I also found it really difficult knowing I may never hear my baby’s voice say my name or tell me he loves me. Sometimes people in the shops would try interact with him and he wouldn’t look or speak to them, and a part of me would feel shame, that they thought he was being rude and I was a bad mother. Lucky now his communication is coming along and I couldn’t tell you how happy and proud this makes me 🥰 Cont. in comments

𝗡𝗼𝘁𝗲𝗱... School pick up on Friday was a bit of a blur, in actual fact the entire week was a full on blur. As I collected Cal I was handed an envelope which I knew to be the termly attendance report, something which I never hold high hopes for, and do my best not to take personally. His teacher made an effort of telling me that this letter wasn’t explicitly for us, and that the whole school have received it, he didn’t want me thinking it was just me. At that point I knew it was probably really bad, I mean who goes to such lengths of explaining a mandatory letter that I relieve termly anyway. When I opened it I saw the percentage... 67%.... I was shocked. The letter kindly reminded me that this level of attendance will be detrimental to my sons education, how it will inevitably affect his GCSE’s, and it was the equivalent of him missing 12 weeks of school. It then listed all of the incentives for children to attend and the end of year prizes they’ll receive for making the effort to attend. It’s just another thing, another little thing that chips away at your heart. Another thing that my son is missing out on, being failed at, for having a hidden disability. I’m not blaming the school, I’m blaming the system. Having your child not being able to attend school is fundamentally wrong. It affects them in more ways than we can imagine and I know that throughout this process my ego, self-confidence and pride has taken a real battering. Sort out our school system so ALL of our children get the right to an education, because trust me, I want to see 100% just as much as you do. #schoolrefusal#asdawareness#autismawareness#seneducation#asdparenting#asdmum#autismmum#autismparenting#autismacceptance#hiddendisability

Autism is confusing and fascinating. It’s isolating and exciting and funny. It can be scary but remarkable, heartbreaking but beautiful, wild but colorful. Autism is ever-changing. Autism is not at all what I thought it would be. It’s full of little every day miracles Evan has recently been interested in our laptop computers. His kindergarten Library class now includes a digital media component. We’ve been told it’s tricky for him to navigate the mouse and keyboard, but that hasn’t stopped him from trying it out at home. As I was putting Lydia to bed, Evan pulled up a Word doc and played with the keyboard. I was shocked to find his work. It’s no secret that organizing and categorizing information allows him to self-soothe, but I had no idea that all of these words, ideas, and friends’ names were circulating in his cute little head.🤯 Evan’s ABA therapists often use the term “shape”. We’ve worked to shape his echolaliac scripting into more functional language. We’ve worked to “shape” his specific movie and book passions into imaginative play that will attract peers. I’m hopeful that we can somehow shape these lists into some form of verbal communication. I just love when he gives us a new glimpse into his vivid little world.💻 #hyperlexia

That means a name change to fit the mission, a new logo, and a more professional look to the page. 💎⠀ ⠀ ⠀ While this is all a personal project for myself and @cj_yopp , we still have a mission and I’d love to thank everyone who has supported and continues to support us to this day. ♥️ ⠀ ⠀ We’ve spent the break planning out all kinds of ideas to bring a fitness brand that promotes autism awareness while still giving off that tough, weightlifter image so that those with autism currently training in the gym can wear a brand that supports their struggle and at the same time represents being a beast, because the battle that those diagnosed with ASD fight is a much tougher battle than anyone could imagine. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ We want to fit the attire of anyone who’s in the gym while still supporting autism fighters, that way someone in the gym who may have autism can wear our gear and promote awareness for their battle without letting everyone in there know they have ASD. 🧩⠀ ⠀ ⠀ In the next couple of weeks, we’ll start implementing these changes and designing some clothes and we’re gonna be very eager to show it off so feel free to let us know what you think! We’ve always been open to suggestions and criticism, so feel free to shoot a DM! 📝⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Once again, shoutout to everyone who’s stuck with me. I cannot wait to see what we can do in the future! 💪🏻⠀ ⠀ #induetime #weightlifting #fitness #gym #autismawareness #asdawareness #powerlifting #bodybuilding #motivation #photography #fitnessmotivation #fit #gymmotivation #strength #strong #muscle #weightloss #gains #bodybuilder #strengthtraining #lift #training #motivation #relentless #weighttraining #transformation #energy #positivity #weights #lift #lifting #training #building

The wonderful Autism Swim Approved provider Cindi Green (Miramichi, Canada) is working hard with her swimmers, teaching them to blow bubbles out of their nose (a hard skill for many of our swimmers). Thanks for sharing the great snaps Cindi and keep up the great work.

"All I care about is ______." I recently went to a PD for supporting students with ASD that reminded me we have to tap into students' preferred interests in order to get through to them. Your student loves vacuums - so do you, Pokemon - you better become an expert. When we show them that we care about what they care about it builds trust and respect. One of my students said that he only cares about his phone, not school. Well then, I guess I'm making you a phone for school. He was avoiding all his work spending most of the day with his head on the desk. Using this chart, if he can earn 4 apps for work completion he earns real technology breaks. It's working! How do you use your students' obsessive interests to support their learning/behavior? #iteachsped #austismawareness #specialeducation #teachersofinstagram #newteacher #firstyearteacher #teachingresources #classroommanagement #behavioraltools #iteachautism #asdawareness

Even as a parent with a child with High Function Autism I find at times that people who have children with autism don't see the likes of Logan as being autistic enough. Almost as if we are 'lucky' Yes he's extremely intelligent, yes he's verbal, yes he may not 'look autistic' but he still has lots of demons to fight with daily and deserves as much support as the rest We are all in this together no matter what way or how differently we are affected @judemorrow has it all sussed 👌 #autism #autismawareness #autismfamily #autismfollowers #asd #asdawareness #hyperlexia #highfuctioningautism #allthesame

If you missed the announcement last night on @tulipsintuscany, I am now an official part of their team! What started off as a Takeover sharing Lane’s story, to me admiring these women and all they do for the special needs community, has turned into an opportunity for me to be even more involved and grow so many new friendships! I am so thankful. I have had a hard time lately showing & sharing Lane’s journey, because to be honest he hates the camera. I know, shocking right? It’s hard to get him to sit still or participate. However, my goal is to share more through both Tulips and my own personal account whether it be on my feed or in my stories because Lane and his daily obstacles and victories are something I love for you all to see! #thisisfragilex #fragilexwarrior #asdawareness #epilepsywarrior #specialneedsmom #fragilexsyndrome
