The A-Z Of Autism - J & K Are For

When Mr L was diagnosed back in 2007 I didn't have a clue what Autism was or even what it meant, 8 years on and 2 more diagnoses its still a puzzle. I have been contemplating doing a blog series with all the words associated with Autism to help other parents and to maybe be a bit of a reference point. So say hello to the A to Z of Autism. Each week will be a different letter, last week was I is for and I got some fab inclusions from other autism parents. This week I have put J & K together as there weren't many words I could come up with for them.

Jelly
Autism Mumma Says - My daughter has such sensory issues around jelly that the sound of it being served up makes her feel sick - and she has physically been sick at school when they've cooked it.

Jump
Autism Mumma Says - Jumping on the trampoline calms both my children down and D will jump on the spot when she's excited too. Which can be a bit strange if we're in a shop as she's nearly as tall as me.

Judged
Rainbows Are Too Beautiful Says - Autistic kids, their parents and autistic adults are often judged by others, read her post here 

Jealousy
Faith Mummy Says -  I have really struggled with this having a non-verbal son.

Joy
A Blog About Raising My Autistic Son Says - when things go better than expected. When you realise that your child has learned something new or coped better in a situation that they couldn't handle previously. 

Juggling
Loobes Life Says - Juggling my child, appointments, phone calls, my job and my other two children who are NT. It's also juggling meals, juggling expectations, juggling whether to explain my child and at which point do I think.... mind your own business! 

Knots
Faith Mummy Says - knots in my tummy every time I see the school phoning! 

Keep Calm And Carry On - For When All Else Fails
Do you have anything else you would add for H or J then just leave me a comment below? Make sure you come back in a fortnight for L is for.....

  1. My daughter has sensory issues too, my youngest that is. i was literally told to take her to the doctors as they can't handle her in school. She is only 5. They think ASD but I am waiting for official confirmation. My eldest who is almost 14 is showing signs of Aspergers and I too was diagnosed but as a young adult with ADHD but didn't seek help. I don't see the point at now 35. I am who I am hyperactive and talk the hind legs off a donkey but that's just me lol. You definitley get judgement from people that don't understand when kids act out in public but I have learned not to care about anyones opinions that have no intention of helping either with my children or paying my bills. I definitely think that is the way forward.
