And many made it home again because our cousin can't eat gluten. Not in a faddish way, in the has the genuine medical problem sensible way. So in … Continue reading De Railed Part 5 and thank goodness the end of the line.

Any of you that have had much to do with autism and therapy blah blah, will know we were not allowed to languish at home for long after the KSP implosion. I mean I learnt my lesson. Lisa (I) am not good with people. It takes all my energy, it is scary and so anxiety … Continue reading Scary Day Ahead!

I’ve Been…

It's been a long while. Bit cliched, I know, restarting on New Year's Day. But I need all the pushing I can get.     KSP did not work out. Maybe because I'm a b&%@#, maybe because of the autism. But basically I couldn't communicate my needs or my ideas. The break up was a … Continue reading I’ve Been…

KSP Exercise – POV

I may have been ignoring my blog but I've still been facilitating at KSP Writers' Centre.  Admittedly mostly Tabby and Alex but I believe technically there are considered people.  And they do pay, actually I pay.  That's right I pay to boss about my own kids.  Actually thinking about it, they listen to me; money … Continue reading KSP Exercise – POV

Neurotypicals May Be A Necessary Evil. Or  If Autistics Ruled the World! – Preamble

First my many disclaimers: I am responding to thoughts I have had regarding how hard it must be to be a neurotypical person and have most of your mind taken up with social, how can I put this politely, inconsequencies. And how the higher concentration of logic and ordered thinking available with the autistic brain … Continue reading Neurotypicals May Be A Necessary Evil.

I Am Awake, Shut Up Mum

In order to wake Alex from a dissociative/mute/withdrawn episode I sometimes use songs that attract her attention and simultaneously offer a reward if she can repeat the song.  Singing a funny song preferably with actions wakes her up.  By the time she can sing the song properly she is ready to safely walk around.
