Here's the latest article from the Autism Spectrum Disorders site at BellaOnline.com.
Connecting with Therapeutic Agencies
Sharing personal experiences as a parent with agencies that provide services to children with special needs in the home, school and agency settings.
My son Nicholas has already started school this week, in tenth grade now. Matthew heads into high school in LAUSD in September. We are in the midst of toilet training with ABA four nights a week.
I am hoping next summer Matt can attend a camp and learn to swim. I am teaching Nick how to use weights. Nick got an XBox and is busy playing Halo Reach. I am on twitter, google plus and facebook if you would like to connect.
I plan to share the high school experience this year as it unfolds for Mathew. Instead of an autism class I chose an MRS class after visiting and meeting the teacher. He happens to have years of experience not only as a Special Ed teacher but as a parent whose son is now in a group home. We should be visiting the school soon with the aide.
