I just happened upon a terrific blog called 366 Days of Autism. Written by Nicole, a mother of an autistic middle schooler, this blog follows her son’s journey as they navigate school and social relationships. Nicole writes that we could all be “on the spectrum,” but just deal differently with our “quirks.” I also love this quote by Nicole: My favorite phrase?, ‘My son is not disabled. He is differently abled, by my standards I say perfectly abled.’
If you are searching for a well-written site with an abundance of valuable tips on life with an autistic child, this one is for you. “Day #261 Flowering Self-Esteem” is brilliant. Everything I have read and seen is well worth the time. Please check it out!
