Since my blog is kind of Doctor Who themed I thought I'd share this cute video of Lady Bug from 2.5 years ago (around age 20 months, before her regression) when the big brothers were watching a lot of Doctor Who with the family.
Lady Bug has been interested in Wild/African/Safari/Zoo animals lately so I decided to capitalize on her interest and have begun a morning time when we try to do an activity together.
The other day my very nice husband went to Walmart and bought $30's worth of Hooks for my ideas for improving Lady Bug's Montessori-Inspired Learning Area.
I'm in several facebook groups and I hear the struggles of special needs kids in public schools. I honestly don't know how they do it; I have a lot of awe for those Advocates of their children. Our life is much easier and laid back. Here's some ways how:
I got a lot of negative feedback on Gifted Homeschool Forum's facebook share of my Reaction to Disney Pulling Content from Netflix post.
People assume that Autism is a strict spectrum of disabilities, but actually from a non-linear, non-objective viewpoint- it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly....neuro-unlogical....stuff.
But besides the cool things that help with sensory regulation, one of the more sensory friendly aspects of her room is one that I struggle with the most; keeping it simple and uncluttered.
I went into watching Atypical thinking I'd be focusing on how accurately they would portray an autistic person, and came out of it distracted by just how much I hated the mother.
So, is Disney pulling from Netflix and charging for it separately the equivalent of a tax on special needs families?
I whipped up a batch of homemade playdough today because I'm awesome like that. I also used the dog's detangling conditioner on my 4 year old's hair. It's all about balance.
