Having an autistic child is not the end of the world--far from it. It is my hope that through this blog, at least a handful of people will get to understand that. My child is amazing, she brings us tremendous joy. We have good days & bad days, but we CHOOSE to focus on the good. Our belief is that by loving our daughter, giving her the most comfortable environment we can, and by most of all accepting her differences, she will continue to blossom--in her OWN way.

A Letter Worth Learning From...

Must be the day, I seem to keep coming across worthwhile stuff, from parents:

This is a great letter, from a parent to her autistic daughter's kindergarten teacher. It's helpful for other parents, full of ideas on how to help a child through their school day. It is inspiring because you can tell this mom cares about & believes in her child, and is willing to offer any help and support for her child. These are easy accommodations, and I think the general public could stand to learn a bit from this type of letter as well.
