- I saw this great article in our local news today, and I'm glad the outcome was positive. If anyone finds out who these parents are, I would love to talk with them respectfully about the experience.
- Our monthly meet-ups for Exceptional Parents of Exceptional Children --- the support group I co-chair --- are back from their summer hiatus. You can read about our group here and about or visit our blog site here.
- Nolan and I had a wonderful connection recently. As you know, many autistics are not good at communicating affection. Well, the other day as The Boy climbed the steps of the mini-bus, he shrugged off his backpack and headed down the aisle. Then, in an unsolicited, unexpected moment, he turned back up the walkway, murmured "head butt" to me (our 'little thing'), and then put his head on my cheek, grabbed my neck and squeezed. Then just as quickly, he let go and without looking back, sat in his seat for the ride to school. I was speechless and it was awesome!
Just thought I'd share these little bits with you.
Have a great day,
