Cu siguranță nu este ușor să fii părintele unui copil cu autism. Există multe momente pline de bucurie, dar nu putem nega că provocările cu care se confruntă acești părinti sunt foarte mari.
Sunt mereu îngrijorați, se luptă pentru a obține cele mai bune servicii pentru copiii lor, își sacrifică viețile profesionale, se afundă în datorii și, încet, încet, renunță la ei înșiși.
Cercetătorii au studiat depresia și anxietatea, precum și stresul și coping-ul părintilor copiilor cu dizabilităti.
Dacă putem înțelege ceea ce accentuează impactul negativ asupra familiilor, putem trece la rezolvarea acestora.

Mommy blog time:
Just some thoughts and feelings today of being a mother to a disabled daughter. I feel like I don’t truly get to give my all to my other beautiful daughters. This evening we had a short trip to grocery shop and it was so fun to spend some alone time doing a simple errand with Adara and Ava. What beautiful young girls they are. So smart and funny. I may see them daily but I feel like I’m lacking in our mother daughter relationship. With the holidays approaching I don’t normally do resolutions but this year coming I promise to make more memories with you girls. More laughter, more us time, most importantly some more mommy time. It is so important to not lose yourself autism parents! We have to work extra hard sometimes to form these relationships and often times we push others away. Just so deep in battle with autism life it can swallow you whole. ❤️🧩 love you girls. Wishing everyone happy holidays 😘- Dreams Mom.
Join me to END THE "R" WORD
For many years people have used the word "Retard" as an insult towards those that are not disabled...this is completely unacceptable in my opinion. These hateful words people use nowadays is getting old because we live in "2018" where I thought things were diffrent compared to the past where they would put Autistic's in Asylums ,nut houses, and even institutions. We live in a new age people where "CHANGE" is happening and everyone is adapting to the idea of working towards the same goal to make this world a better place for everyone. No matter how many "Words" people throw at you don't fall just keep on walking forward because those hateful words only come from those that have hearts filled with hate...living through life with hate will only make things harder for those people. So lucky for us we can actually live up to what this world should be about "Helping One Another" , instead of accepting that this is tough world so we must act "Cruel" which isn't necessary. You don't have to act like the "Cruel World Around You" because no matter how hard things get you'll always have a choice of the person you wanna be.
This is the result of a little runny nose. He doesn’t allow any ointment or oil or lotion to be applied to any area of his skin. I am constantly reminding him to stop wiping with his tissue and to please simply dab, but I think it’s to the point it of being an OCD habit by now. High hopes of sneaking some ointment onto his face when he finally falls asleep. Another day, another obstacle. #thisisautism#autismawareness#thestruggleisreal#parentingautism

Why do people use the word "normal"?
What is normal anyways? Whether or not your quirks have an official diagnosis attached, everyone is different.
👊Everyone has days where they are so giddy they could jump up and down.
👊Everyone has days where they are so mad that they scream and lash out at someone.
👊Everyone has days where their mind is somewhere else and they were forgetful or not inspired to complete their daily tasks.
Yet because someone has initials like ASD, or ADD, or ADHD, etc that it makes someone "not normal".
There is no normal. There are just people. There are just minds that work differently. We all have our strengths and we all have our struggles.
I always try to relate to friends, family, coworkers and parents a behavior in a way that they may understand. Usually it's a behavior us as adults have had or a feeling we had that is similar. What's different is how we reacted to that situation and how others perceived what we did.
So choose wisely when using the word "normal" and really try to understand a child that is having a "behavior" because it may be something you've done or felt but maybe you had the skills to control your emotions or people didn't see it as something disruptive or negative.
Put yourself in their shoes. Don't try to be normal. It's overrated anyways. ❤️
Check out Student A learning to wear his own shirt! Wearing a shirt may seem like an easy task, but it requires specific set of skills such as identifying the front and back of the shirt and motor skills to pull the shirt down and to fit in each hand. Teaching our kiddos these basic self-help skills sets the foundation for independence in daily living. Doing great there A! So fluent! #autismlinkmalaysia#autismawareness#autismlove#autism#abatherapy#aba
No les he contado sobre la tutoría todo del cole de mi peque, pero la sensación es que hemos conseguido un cole con profes verdaderamente implicados que buscan causas y no buscan justificar las consecuencias. Profes que no sólo le brindan todas las oportunidades a mi hijo sino que brindan a sus compañeritos la oportunidad de conocerlo e interactuar con él a su manera.
Si... me siento ¡en la cresta de la ola!!! .

Digital books really ruin the whole take a pretty picture of the book you’re reading while cozy on the couch or by fire photos.
But they do help me get through long commutes and allow me to actually listen to the books I’ve been waiting to read.
Okay, on to the point of this post- This is a great resource for parents or anyone who works with kids. This book wasn’t written by an OT, but she focuses on so many things an OT would suggest to do: Acknowledge feelings, give choices, provide the words when your child can not, give them opportunities to problem solve, make them feel heard, ect.
You’ll hear/read concrete examples and dialogue between parents and children that, I think, will help those typically frustrating moments. It’s not magic and may take a conscious effort to change the words you use or how you respond to a child but it’s much easier for us to change how we respond than to convince a child they shouldn’t be upset because their toast is cut in half instead of left whole.
Bonus: she even has a section for neurodiverse populations!
