Parenting an Autistic Toddler: “Unusual Play”

Parenting an Autistic Toddler: “Unusual Play”

Warning, today’s post is picture heavy. You have been warned.   Autism is a wide and varied, complex diagnosis.

The Day That Just Kept Getting Better

I’m sorry I’ve not posted this month. Things have not been going well. I woke up on December 3rd, expecting my food stamps to be loaded onto my EBT card.   Truth be told, I kind of depend on those, and really don’t have a back up plan.   My child support hasn’t come this(…)
