Hoy salió mi artículo en @pajaropolitico sobre mi #neurodiversidad y el espectro #autista , y el #estigma alrededor de los mismos. Lo puedes leer en el link de la bio o en https://www.animalpolitico.com/blogueros-diversidades-fluidas/2018/08/17/exponiendome-en-la-neuro-diversidad/
O Nicolas nunca quis brincar com criança e era nítido que ele não se sentia bem com crianças. Hoje em dia, ele fotografa crianças sem nenhum problema, mas nem sempre foi assim. Quando pequeno, ele não falava e não sabia brincar como as outras crianças. Por exemplo, ele não entendia as dinâmicas do esconde-esconde, pega-pega, polícia e ladrão etc. Era super complexo e ele optava por se isolar. Com o passar do tempo, fomos adaptando brincadeiras para ele e demos atenção para brincadeiras que fosse m de acordo com suas habilidades, como memória, por exemplo. Com as brincadeiras, conseguimos trabalhar vocabulário e comunicação oral, coordenação etc. Há pessoas com autismo que gostam de pessoas da mesma idade. E há outras que não conseguem se relacionar com pessoas de forma convencional. Porém, é importante saber quando a pessoa com TEA quer se relacionar e quando prefere se isolar. A saúde mental deles deve ser observada de perto, muitas vezes, por tempo indeterminado.
Happy Friday everyone!
Just a boy and his dog 💙

Next week we are taking Theo to the beach for the first time. I’m hoping it’s not too much of a sensory overload for him, but we will just take it slowly and hope for the best. Here’s to making lots of new memories 💙 What is everyone else up to over the summer?

Just finished listening to this book! I wish every person that has or will ever come into contact with my John could/would read this!! So eye opening and at the same time very encouraging for me!! John is so often misunderstood as being a jerk or a disciple problems. I know because I see the looks we get from people.
I know God gave him to me for a reason and I often feel like I fail him, but after reading this I know that Ive done the best I could...much better than this mans parents.
With this being Johns senior year in high school, I worry so much about his future. It may take him longer than his classmates, but I know that he will find his way in this world and excel in whatever he decides to do!
If you or someone you know has a child who is on the Autism Spectrum , I highly recommend this book!! 📚 .
We just learned that our 2 year old daughter Madison has ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). We’ve noticed for about a year now that she wasn’t hitting her milestones like her twin brother was and we’ve been concerned about a few things; primarily that she’s still not standing or walking unassisted.
We prayed, wished, hoped and dreamed for only one thing in having a family... and that was for healthy children who wouldn’t have to fight or struggle with complications and disabilities. What we got was three beautiful, fun, unique children, yet all of them are struggling on a daily basis with their own delays and deficiencies.
Ever since becoming parents it has seemed overly difficult and stressful to us. Our friends seem to be thriving in their parenting roles and enjoying life with their young kids. Yet, due to the closeness in age, the twin factor and delays that our kids possess, we have never had an easy day. And now with this diagnosis, we’re scared we never will.
It’s been hard enough trying to find “the village” to help us with this thing called parenting. Harder still, to find a village of parents with multiples under the age of three. And now we add autistic to the search criteria?!? Hang on to your hat, peeps; shits about to get real! Watch for a blog with more of our thoughts coming next week.
