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.

Inspired!!

This week was Wi UPCI Ladies Retreat! It was held in Appleton at the Paper Valley Hotel. The theme was Covered, and the stage was decorated with beautiful yellow, pink, and blue umbrellas. The speakers were Vani Marshall and Melanie Shock. Both of these ladies were absolutely wonderful. I am still processing the last three days!

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.

95 Free Links For Transition

We have been focusing on different things in transition. For us it is work in progress but we are getting there. The links I am sharing came from one of the conferences I have attended. I did get a list of both paid and free links. If your like me your not really going to be interested in the links you have to pay for. After all there is a ton of information on the WWW. I hope you find these links useful as you and your child start your journey on transition.

Transition Planning Timelines for Grades 8 – 12

I am to the point with my son where we are starting to focus on transitioning. I don’t know how far we will get, but time surely has all the answers. I have been struggling trying to figure out what he wants to do after high school. I am not even sure he really knows. I tried setting up different electives that he picked but then it just kind fizzled out on the interest. It’s been rather frustrating at times. I know I have mentioned a few times about the conferences at  Yippie. One of the things I found very handy was a Transition Planning Timeline. This has give me a new focus on how and what to put emphasis on. This can start as early as Grades 8 – 9.  The hand out I did receive I found to be very helpful. Most of you following my blog know that my son has autism and a cognitive disability. So this is something we are slowly starting to work on.
