The #1 Surprising Fact About Non Verbal Autism You Will Be Glad You Knew

michelle hatcher's powering parenting for autism

Have you come away from your child’s diagnosis assessment and wonder if they had got it wrong? Have you ever wanted to challenge being told your child won’t talk? Have you ever wanted to prove doctors wrong, because you know your child better than they do?

WELL YOU WERE RIGHT. NOW, HERE’S WHY…

In this video I share with you one surprising fact about non verbal autism that will encourage you to think again. It is THE #1 surprising fact about non verbal autism you will be glad you knew!

The current situation in the world means that more and more ASD children are not getting the support and teachers they need in schools as the demand for assistance reaches crisis point in many of our communities. This is bad for our children because they will never get the encouragement they deserve to achieve anything in life, thus meaning a future of loneliness, poverty and depression.

So these are our choices;

  • We take teaching into our OWN hands…
  • OR we say ‘blow it’ and leave our kids in the care of incompetent States. So, what’s it going to be for YOUR child?

This is what I need YOU to do to ensure your child does NOT get left behind as another failed statistic;

Bed without the meltdown

how to get your special needs child to go to bed without the meltdown

Bedtime. Parents dread it, but no more than parents with special needs children.

My son Jon is 15 and has Autism and PDA. He loves is laptop and can’t wait to hook up with friends all over the world and play war games, battles and recreate WW2 flying planes, sailing battle ships. You name it, he gets engrossed in it.

Then it’s bedtime. Both Nick and I have to get up and go to work in the morning and it’s time we all got a good night sleep. Jon would, in the past, kick off, scream, throw things, have a tantrum, meltdown, cry, in fact everything he could think of which would either send us away exhausted from his room and give up or distract us enough that we might just change our minds…

We were at our wits end. Nothing worked. I even tried saying ‘Jon, I’ll give you a tenner, if you come off your laptop now and got to bed…’ I got up as far as £50 one night and suddenly thought, this is ridiculous!!

Then I came up with an idea.

How about I go up to him, ten minutes before I want him to go to bed, and take an interest in what he’s doing?

It worked!

Now, I say to Jon each night in a cheerful voice, ‘Hey Jon, want to show me what you’ve made or been playing before you go to bed?’ And he says, ‘OK.’

So then we have five minutes of bonding. He shares with me what he has been doing, who he has spoken to, Which bits made him laugh and so on. I engage with him and show a genuine interest in his games. Then I say, ‘Great! Looks like you’ve have a good time!’ Bedtime now?’

And he happily shuts the pc, brushes his teeth and goes to bed…

This might take some repetitive practise but, it soon worked with Jon.

Try it, and let me know how you got on in the comments box below!

Dallas Counselor gives 4 Tips to Raise Awareness

http://www.totallifecounseling.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Autism-sesame-Street-Character.jpgRecently, Sesame Street has added a new member to its cast! Joining Elmo, Big Bird, Bert and Ernie, is Julia—a character with autism. The newest addition to Sesame Street is intended to spread awareness about individuals with autism. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 68 U.S. children has a disorder on the autism spectrum. A 2014 CDC report states that about 1 in 42 boys have autism and 1 in 189 girls have autism.

The Sesame Street and Autism: See All in Amazing Children special is available via app or desktop computer. It contains daily cards and resources to help family, friends, and loved ones caring for a child with autism.

I am so excited to see such strides being made for supporting autism. It’s a much more popular disorder than many realize, and in one-way or another we all encounter autism. A friend’s child, a cousin, a reality star’s son, your child—awareness, research, and support needs to spread faster and stronger than the disorder.

What’s even better about this new program is the audience it will reach. The importance of children learning about autism cannot be stressed enough. Throughout my personal experience in elementary schools, sadly even in high school and college, people do not know how to properly speak and interact with those who have intellectual and autism spectrum disorders. Now, children watching Sesame Street can become educated on autism, learn how to speak and interact with those who have special needs, reduce ignorance, and spread support from an early age.

In the story, Elmo plays with Julia on the playground and helps friend Abby Cadabby comprehend that Julia plays differently than them and their other friends. Through patience and understanding, Elmo helps Abby understand Julia—a lesson we can all take note of. “Elmo’s daddy told Elmo that Julia has autism. So she does things a little differently. Sesame Street New Autistic Spectrum Character, ASD Awareness, ASD Orlando Counseling, Autistic Therapist Orlando, Dallas Aspergers TherapySometimes Elmo talks to Julia using fewer words and says the same thing a few times” he says. When the friends venture out for a snack, Julia covers her ears once inside the store. Elmo explains to Abby that Julia has really good ears and hears things that he and Abby don’t notice, and some noises bother her. Simple lessons like this will teach children, and their parents, what autism is, what it is not, and how to be supportive to the millions of individuals who have a spectrum disorder.

You can be encouraging and raise awareness as well!

  • Sesame Street is using #SeeAmazing to encourage people to share their stories, videos, pictures, advice, and support on social media. This will keep the conversation going, and network of awareness spreading.
  • Put up yard signs, sport a bumper sticker, or wear the puzzle piece apparel! A sign that says, “Autism awareness: Be understanding. Be aware” gives the right message to everyone who passes by.
  • Join a crowd! Participate in an awareness walk, attend a rally, or look into the Autism Society’s events in your area.
  • Be a friend, be kind, and be compassionate. If you know someone who cares for someone with autism, call and check up on them every now and then. If you hear someone say something rude or inconsiderate about autism, or any disability for that matter, address it. Don’t let the ignorance slide.
