The Puzzle Boy Goes to the Black Hills of South Dakota!

South Dakota. What does that conjure up in your mind? Hmmm, in my mind, I think of flat!  Maybe sunflowers and gorgeous puffy white clouds that hang sorta low and make big shadows over the ground.  How about Mitchell Corn Palace and Wall Drug??!! Oh, yeah! Wall Drug!  Did you know that was the name of the town? Wall.  Interesting.  Oh, maybe you think of Custer's last stand or Indians.  Ok, we are getting closer.  How about Mount Rushmore, Black Hills and Custer State Park?

Yet Another Incredibly Sad Autism Story

 

Here is the story of a precious boy named Ryan.  Seth came and saw his picture and said "This is me, right?"

I told him, no, it was not.  However, I am amazed at how similar in looks these two boys are!  Also, they are similar

in disposition as Seth is a very spiritual boy also! My heart and my prayers go out incredibly deep to the Barret Family of New York!      

 

Oh No! Where'd His Tooth Go? Part I Living With Autism

After driving for two hours to get to Springfield for Seth's neurology appointment, and doing a bit of shopping, we were hungry and ready to eat. Into our favorite fast food restaurant we went. Panera Bread. Notice I said fast food, not junk food! Panera is one of the best places a person could eat out quickly. I ordered our favorites, Mediterranean sandwich and Garden Vegetable soup with a salad, hunk of sourdough bread and chips. As I was quietly eating, taking in my surroundings, I looked up and imagined I saw an empty place in Seth's mouth. An area that appeared dark.

New Theory of Autism Suggests Symptoms or Disorder May Be Reversible

I found this to be quite intriguing as I had noticed the same thing. I also noticed when Seth was young that he did real well when fasting. Seth also does not have seizures when he is sick, has a cold, or has had a broken bone. I would agree with this article except for the part that says this happens to the children of woman who lived through a bad storm such as a cyclone! I just get a "kick" out of some "scientific" minds. I never went through a major storm while pregnant for Seth. Did this happen to anyone else out there???

Autism and Habits

Listen as Mark describes the process of developing good quality habits in your Autistic child. He will explain how the brain works.

Waves of Autism

Have you ever noticed that your Autistic child will have good days and bad days? It is like the waves and tides of an ocean. There are high times and low times. Stormy times and calm times. Days where you feel you have it "all together" and times when it seems like everything you accomplished just fell apart!. Those are dismal days for sure! I have been contemplating such events. Where do they come from, why is it so? Guess what? I think it is more complicated than we can even imagine!

University of California Finds Rising CA Autism Cases Not Due to Better Counting

(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) - A study by researchers at the UC Davis M.I.N.D. Institute has found that the seven- to eight-fold increase in the number children born in California with autism since 1990 cannot be explained by either changes in how the condition is diagnosed or counted - and the trend shows no sign of abating.

What About You, Mom?

As a Caregiver over a person with Autism, or a person with Dementia, or over a cancer patient, or any other such thing, I would like to ask you, "How are you caring for yourself?" This may sound a bit selfish. I remember a person storming into my son's hospital room while I was caring for him and being with him.

How Might an Autistic Child Relate to Death

Years ago, when Seth was about 5 years old, my dad had a cat and we had a dog. My dad's cat was a beautiful calico with long hair. We had her since I was a young child. It was surely a cat with 9 lives. Tiffany, our dog, which was a poodle had been around since before we had children. Back in B.C. (before children).
