Our Journey, where we've been and where we are now, 21 years later with Autism & other neuro-differences, homeschooling and now into adult life. You can homeschool your child too, no matter their difficulties, with patience, love, understanding and a bit of research too. You can enjoy your family and have a lifelong love of learning.
Autism Acceptance, Awareness, Advocacy, Activism and Action is what we need in the Autism Community. Any parent, anyone that knows someone with Autism/ASD can do something to help raise true awareness & acceptance of our children and adults with Autism.
Be a true activist by helping a family in your community, even if its just to let them know its okay when you see their child having that meltdown. The family that you'll see, frantic because their child just ran off in the store or even when you see that child spinning and giggling in a world of their own. Get involved with the organizations that are putting those funds back into helping the families, not just research.
I look forward to sharing our journey and encouraging you with your family's journey with Autism and Homeschooling.
Feel free to call in or join us in the chat room with questions and your input. :-) 1-619-393-2848 or you can call in via Skype.
