Good Morning... I am a little mixed as to whether it is actually is a good morning.
I was suppose to leave the house 10 minutes ago to get to my massage, something I have been hanging for and desperately NEED! But I haven't been able to peel James from the couch this morning. That is TOTALLY unlike him! He is an energizer bunny that has no stop button, so when he is lacking of energy laying on the couch I KNOW there is something wrong.
I went and had a shower and came out to a cloud of SHIT SMELL. Like the whole entire loungeroom absolutely stinks! James has the runs! The poor thing.
So I miss out on my mummy time and now I get to play with shit all day.
Thank you to all the people that follow our journey on Instagram, we now have over 1000 followers. Thank you for helping us spread awareness about ASD. Its really is heart warming to see so many people from all over the world loving our story.
So yesterday I had to write a stern email to an Autism organization here in Australia, they provide in home and external therapy services to children on the Autism Spectrum. Their communication is incredibly poor. I really find it difficult to tolerant LAZY people. You get paid to do a job. Do your job. I get concerned as I am a PROACTIVE ADVOCATING PARENT, I am a small percentage of parent. Most parents sit back and wait, not of any fault of their own, they trust the system, they trust that people do their jobs and they probably have anxiety and don't need the stress of chasing professionals all the time. The hardest part of our journey so far is the amount of lazy professionals I have to deal with. I think that if you work in the field of special needs you need to be a special kind of person who has communication and passion as part of your attributes.
So after my kick ass email yesterday I woke refocused with a new set of goals for James. I do therapy with James everyday, whether its internal or external therapy.
We do a lot to tick off his sensory diet. I feel now I need to add in some fine motor work in the form of drawing and writing. James struggles to hold a pen, doesn't understand the amount of pressure needed to right and has NO interest in drawing. So I am going to start this activity with him everyday. It will probably start with a whole 5 seconds of interest from his part but its really something I want him to achieve before he is 4 (in January). I will keep you posted with how we go. This morning he did great, he wrote the 1000 in the above picture UNAIDED.
