Autism Spectrum Disorders

October 14 2007 Autism Spectrum Disorders Newsletter

Greetings Everyone ~

We have been busy caring for this kitten that broke its leg a few weeks ago and making many trips each week back to the Animal Hospital for bandage changes. Now he has to see the Surgeon on Wednesday due to some pin in his leg and then stitches taken out and his tail bandaging. Nicholas is enjoying seeing all the cats at the Hospital when we go there and discussing Meerkat Manor with other people there. He is also doing well with being in the same room as many dogs and feeling more comfortable around them.

Matthew has started picking string off the bottom of his socks. I liked when he shredded newspaper instead. He is without floortime due to the sudden departure of the Child Development Specialist because of the kitten. We are trying to adjust.

So far he has met the new OT and Adaptive PE at school. No word yet on a speech therapist. If anyone is planning on attending the Autism Walk in Los Angeles or is having a booth, please let me know.

Here is an article I wrote on Insurance Discount Cards -

Here's the latest article from the Autism Spectrum Disorders site at

Books For Kids on the Autism Spectrum
An overview of five books that are geared toward understanding those who have autism. These are perfectly suited for siblings, friends and classmates as well.

***PLEASE NOTE*** - Three of the books I wrote about are available for giveaway. Autism Through A sister's eyes, My friend with autism and the autism acceptance book. Please reply to me at this email address if you are interested in one of these three books. The acceptance book is in brand new condition, not written on and ready for use in a clasroom environment or a therapist office. I can only send these books to people in the US, and would prefer to three different people.

I have been getting some great freebies from this site =
