Fair, But Not Equal, Parenting
Raising children is not easy. For years, our family focused on trying to make everything equal in order to keep the peace. Our attempts failed. When we refocused our efforts on being fair, rather than equal, we found what worked best for each member of the family.

Finding Support
Parenting a child on the autism spectrum can feel isolating and overwhelming. It is important to develop healthy, supportive relationships with people who understand the daily and lifelong challenges of parenting a child with special needs.

Holidays and Breaks in Routine
Holidays and the break in routine and structure can be frustrating for many families of children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Sensory sensitivities are heightened. With some planning and patience, parents can enjoy the holidays and limit the negative impact on children and themselves.

Hypervigilance and the Autism Parent
Hypervigilance is a reality for parents of children on the autism spectrum. Understanding what it means can be both terrifying and validating.

Mentors for Kids with Autism Spectrum Disorders
Kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder struggle to understand social rules and expectations. Mentors are a great way to help children understand social interaction, develop relationships and find a place to 'fit' and thrive.

Path to an Autism Diagnosis
The path to diagnosis and treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is not one-size-fits-all. Some children are more obviously affected by ASD and are diagnosed and begin treatment more quickly. Others may wait several years for the signs and symptoms to become more obvious and impactful.

Preparing for the Holidays
There are many ways to help those with Autism Spectrum Disorders overcome the fear and anxiety that often comes with the holiday season. With some pre-planning and coping strategies, families can help prepare for changes in routine and structure.

Starting a Social Group
When your community does not have a service you need, it is sometimes possible to create the resource yourself. Setting up a social group for kids on the autism spectrum takes some patience and creativity, but with support from others in the community, you can lead your vision into reality.

Still So Misunderstood
While understanding and acceptance of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) has come a long way, there is still a lot of work to be done in educating people about those living with ASD.

Structure, Schedule and Autism Spectrum Disorders
Creating structure and schedules for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are important. Clear understanding of structure, routine, and schedule are essential to limiting anxiety and frustration and have benefits both at home and at school.
