Greetings Everyone -

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

Tempur-Pedic Pillows For Autistic Teens
Comparing the therapy and comfort Tempur-Pedic pillows in an autism household and finding the teens on the spectrum really like the pressure relieving material.

Please visit for even more great content about Autism Spectrum Disorders.

It has been quite hectic here so far this summer with the cancellation of camp and deciding not to send Matthew to ESY due to it being at a high school in an area that is not favorable, plus his aide did not get assigned ESY due to the lateness of filling out forms in early June when deadline was late April.

Matthew turned 13 the end of June. Nicholas turns 15 in March, where does the time go? I am still waiting to hear from LAUSD on the Non Public agency for his compensated time for Speech. I hope to get that started this summer.

Nicholas has been using the computer most of the days so I am behind in writing some reviews and hope to catch up soon and busy reading here and there some books that I have piled up.

I got notified that Regional Center training and development did register me for the Autism Back to School Conference in August in Pasadena, CA. I asked for Saturday the 15th to hear Cathy Pratt on behavior tips plus they have a teen track and good options to pick.

Please do let me know if you are a vendor, presenter or just attending, maybe we can meet up.
