    I’ve been waiting to update you all on Tony’s new “internship” once he got a few days under his belt.  The polar vortex has delayed things a bit.  Yes, it’s been horrifically cold around here and they’ve even called off school due to wind chill’s in the negative 30’s-40’s.  Seriously.

Lots and lots of lists. […]

Good information to know

Posted by theothersideofnormal on September 26, 2012 in autism |

  This is is a really good explanation of the “little” things that cause very big meltdowns.  I wish I could have had this posted when Tony was younger.  I hope this helps to educate people on the daily struggles of autism and sensory processing disorder.
