Special Needs Parenting— Some days are just frustrating!!

Friday was a really rough day! Most of you know that I have been trying to work on transitioning with my son. There are times I see some positive and then there are times I see some negative and I wonder if we will ever get over this bump. Now please when I say this I am not saying that he can’t or he won’t. I am speaking of this point in time, as I have no idea what the future holds and I can only work on building off of things now to prepare him.

Nuerologist Appointment Today – Never Say Never!!

I feel pretty blessed to have such a wonderful neurology team for my son. We have never been seizure free for a year. We have had a couple seizures this year due to med mistakes and episodes of being sick. We know the reason for the small seizures. The meds are working to control the seizures. This is the first time we are super happy with the meds and no eegs! I also learned a lot more about things while I was there.

Our Day In The Life Of High Functioning Autism

Earlier this week I shared an article on Facebook called Why ‘High Functioning’ Autism is So Challenging. I have been thinking about some of our challenges that we do face daily. One thing I feel is that people think that just because someone is higher functioning that we don’t have struggles. We struggle daily with things. I wanted to shed some light on detail on some of the things that were talked about in that article.

Both my kids are high functioning. My son has High Functioning Autism and my daughter Aspergers. They are so different. They are night and day from each other. It’s actually amazing and sometimes very hard at the same time.

Color My Conversation – An Awesome Speech Therapy Product – Review

Both of my kids are on the spectrum, both have different needs. My son really struggles with social cues and the ability to have a conversation. Now don’t get me wrong there are times I can have a great conversation but it can be very short. He struggles with other people until he is comfortable. My daughter can pick up on social cues and can have a conversation but there is definitely room for improvement. I was really excited to learn about Color My Conversation that was written by Rosslyn Delmonico , MA, RSLP, CCC-SLP and published by Northern Speech Services. This has been an amazing review for us.

Open Letter To The Neuro Pysch

Dear Neuro Psych,

I was totally blown away with the unprofessionalism and rudeness. How dare you say someone shouldn’t come back and let the schools do the testing? Do you realize the schools can’t make diagnosis? Do you realize we were looking for something specific? Apparently you just thought we were a waste of time because in 15 years this was our fourth time to a neuro psych.
