Alex and Aspergers (ASD)

When we say we have 3 sons and 2 of them have ASD I wonder what people think when they met our boys, as all 3 have very different personalities. 837 more words

Motels, movies and 10 pin bowling!

Last week we found out we had been gifted a “Take a break” weekend from IHC New Zealand. The “take a break” is for families of children that have intellectual disabilities or autism to get a break away to refresh and have some fun. 967 more words

Last weekend of the holidays... 

We popped over to Palmerston North for the Manawatu Home Show. It was very busy and noisy but Ryan found lots to look at and used his pushchair to shelter him from some of the over-stimulation. 219 more words

Crocodile tears and moo cows!

As I got Ryan’s morning meds ready I heard him spelling his name. He was feeling the pipecleaner letters on the table. I find if I leave it out for a few days then put it away for a few days he will notice it more than if it’s always on the table. 544 more words

Pushchair to the rescue!

Ryan started the day grumpy and super pale so we had a slow start. I brought a cool wooden nuts and bolts set on a Facebook BuySellSwap page (seriously keep an eye out, you can pick up awesome bargains and save a pile of money on educational toys and books!) The lady selling it kindly dropped it off and Ryan was straight into it! 666 more words

Day of the grumps...

Ryan let us have a lovely sleep-in till 6.45am and while the rest of us are still in holiday mode (big boys off school and Stefan off work) Ryan was straight into his usual morning routine. 257 more words
