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.


An Action Plan Worth Noting (& Learning From)...

PhotobucketPerhaps this is something we (mainly our government) in the U.S. could learn from. I hope it is successful, and other countries will follow Wales' lead. From BBC News:

A strategy to help people affected by autism in Wales is set to be launched, with the Welsh Assembly Government claiming it to be a world first.

The action plan aims to improve services in health, social services and education - and expand into areas of housing, leisure and general society.

The assembly government has pledged £1.8m for the programme's first year.

Improvement in health and social services, education, and areas of housing, leisure, and general society. Isn't that a great place to put money?
