Are We Cheating Ourselves?

While the point of the show was about actual physical cheating/stealing, it really did have me thinking a lot about what I need to do to add value to autistic adults lives… I am so adamant on helping people and truly helping them….. that sometimes I become so overwhelmed and my anxiety kicks in. I don’t want to cheat them out of help… If I can help!

A LOVEly Garden

Imagine if we all decided to plant the seeds of love… Of listening… Of compassion… Of understanding… How much better we would feel… How much better we would be… And how much more beautiful the world would be!

I challenge each of you.. every time you see a flower.. to think about where can YOU plant that seed of love,acceptance, understanding, compassion and listening.

Anxiety in autism spectrum disorder

Parents often feel helpless when their children have anxiety along with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Both are quite complicated medical issues and they need to be dealt with carefully. Autistic children with anxiety disorder have the same tensions and apprehensions as others. But when they get an anxiety attack, their behavior appears more like the symptoms of ASD. They resist any change in the routine. They show obsessive and ritualistic behavior and so on.
