I love this list of 12 important things every child — and maybe especially our children on the autistic spectrum — needs to hear.
This is an incredible video. Today I stand up and applaud all the fierce-mom and fierce-dad advocates who never give up on their children. The struggle is real, but so is our strength.
Dr. Temple Grandin sits down with Nancy Asplaugh-Jackson from Autism Live to discuss children on the milder end of the autistic spectrum. Very informative and inspiring.
I recently read an article in The Washington Post that really touched me; maybe it just hits close to home.
Nancy L. Wolf wrote about ‘kvelling’, a Yiddish word for ‘bursting with pride’, to describe what moms and dads everywhere do when bragging about their children’s accomplishments. But what happens to kvelling if your child is on his or her own very different path? Her article is worth your time and consideration. Read it in full here.
