Just another day…

I thought I would just do a very short little blog post tonight because one, I havn’t posted in WAY to long! Two, this photograph I took of my son Jayden I think speaks enough. These last weeks have been crazy, between strep, the flu, & fighting with his school over trying to get an IEP in place I’m not even sure what to write! Jayden’s OT has him listening to a therapeutic CD for 30 min twice a day. We are waiting to see if it has any long term help calming down & focusing on a task. I took this picture & it really just jumped out at me. This picture is a picture of aspergers, this picture is a picture of autism, this picture is my son Jayden.
On a secondary note; How do other parents balance, not just children with autism but any of their kids with work. My wife & I own a small photography business & I am an EMT as well.  Baby sitters are crazy hard to find, I think thats because we have 3 boys! Boy Scouts, OT, School, Homework Vs. Work & a business.  Not a complaint mind you just a question.
Well, thanks for reading! I will do my best to post up again soon. We are supposed to (Believe it when I see it) get the consent form that we requested before Christmas for our IEP tomorrow. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
Thanks for reading.

  1. Hi! I just stumbled across your blog. Hope all is going well for you and yours. As a public school teacher of children with Autism, (and one who happens to have Aspergers Syndrome himself), I know the school system can be difficult to navigate. Sometimes that’s intentional. Special services are expensive and school budgets can be tight. If you feel your child’s needs are not being met, I’d suggest familiarizing yourself with the rights you have as a parent under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Making time for all your children is of course a crucial part of their education, and I realize the difficulties of earning and providing in this economy and how difficult it must be to balance the two. In this, I can only encourage you to keep adventuring and hope you’ll find the keys to help unlock your child’s potential. Remember, Aspergers makes many things difficult, but nothing impossible.
