The A-Z Of Autism - Q Is 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 it's 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. There has been a bit of a gap since the last post, life gets in the way when you have 3 kids on the spectrum! So I thought I better pick it back up again. You can see the other A-Z of autism posts hereThis time is Q is for, I thought this one would be a short one, but I was wrong.

Quirky - AutismMumma
Apart from the obvious ASD traits, my children have little quirks that make them individual.
I agree with autism mumma here, all of my children have their own little quirks, it makes them individual and very fun.

Questioning - Parenting The PDA Way
We question whether our kids are 'normal', we question whether they need a diagnosis and then if the diagnosis is correct, we question our parenting, we question whether we are meeting their needs or not, we question others when they disagree with our parenting, other people question our kid's diagnosis, we ask questions to better understand and help our kids. 

Questions -Faith Mummy
Answering questions are part of my daily routine with Miss S, she wants to know what day it is, what time it is, is it morning or evening, is it school today! Always with the questions, all the time and I have to answer them.

Quiet Time - Brody Me and GDD
Needed for everybody! Needed when in noisy places. 
I definitely agree here, we have 1-hour quiet time in our house before bed, it helps them wind down and chill. We do struggle to find quiet places to chill when we are out and about.

Quarrelling
Always. Because siblings don't always react in a way to calm the situation.
My gang are forever quarrelling, they drive me crazy sometimes, it can be over the smallest things!

Quit - Chaos In Kent
Something we all consider when things go pear-shaped or the system once again fails us. 
Pretty sure we can all relate to this one!

Ques - Stephs 2 Girls
Very difficult, pretty much impossible in fact for my girl to wait in...
My gang do not que, in any way shape or form, they just can't do it. I have asked Mr L what makes queuing so hard for him, he tells me it's the not knowing and the noises! Not knowing how long he will be waiting.

Quotable
This was suggested by Allison from my facebook page, Miss S especially fits this criteria, she quotes books, adverts and lines from films.

Thanks to all the above bloggers for their inclusion, also to Toni Pearson, Allison Hoyles, Debra Etchells from my Facebook and Instagram pages. Stay tuned for R is for in a few weeks time.
Thanks For Reading
