Reflections, Rewards and Reservations
Our family has always struggled and experimented with finding the right educational fit for our son with Asperger's. The recent journey has been filled with successes, while the unknown future causes reservations.
Aspies and ‘Antisocial’ Antics

The battle between executive functioning and the teenage will has begun. Understanding the need for increased independence, while struggling with the knowledge that executive functioning deficits do not necessarily align with that need are a personal challenge.

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.
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.
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.
