Kris over at JesseKate Designs wrote a lovely post about autism awareness. In honor of her nephew, she made a couple different appliques that can be downloaded at her site, SWAKembroidery.com , for free!
It has been really difficult for me to get into autism awareness month this year. Because I live it every single day, I forget that there are still people that don't know a lot about it.
We had a rough Feb/March with Caleb. It took some time to work through a few issues and get his medication regulated. These past two weeks have been so much better. He's able to focus more and is less apt to lash out and be physically aggressive. I try not to be embarrassed when he melts down in public. We do the best that we can. The other day we saw a kid having a hard time in a store and Eva spoke up and said, "He needs a big squeeze and a wrap like a taco!". Wrapping Caleb up in a blanket like a taco and squeezing him really calms him down.
This post is kind of all over the place today. I guess the point I want to make is that even though I'm not blogging about autism every day this month, doesn't mean I don't hope that you seek out as much information about it as you can.
