The A to Z of Autism - I 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 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 H is for and I got some fab inclusions from other autism parents. This week is I is for.........

Rachel from Parenting the PDA way  The thing we, as parents strive to achieve for our kids.
Jeannette from Autism Mumma - Will my children grow up to have this? I hope so, really do.

Clare from Sons Sand and Sauvignon - Sometimes as a parent, especially when your child reaches school age you can feel completely invisible with regards to the daily care of your child. You don't know the school policies or how stretched your local specialists are and without fighting tooth and nail, your opinions are very often not the priority

Miriam from Faith Mummy My daughter with autism has so little self esteem as she is beginning to realise she is different. 

Jeannette from Autism Mumma - Others who have such ideals for our children, assumptions about them and how they should or shouldn't behave.

Miriam from Faith Mummy, help, schools, teachers, awareness, need I go on?

Ann from Rainbows are too beautifulmisconception that people with autism have none, but sometimes the opposite is the case

This is definitely a word made for my ASD children, they just never ever get tired, me on the other hand.........

This is a individual learnng plan, and msot children on teh sepctrum will have one. THis is a dociument that has a stregedy or education/learning. It takes into consideration the child's strengths and weaknesses and identifies how progress will be made.

Do you have anything else you would add for H then just leave me a comment below? Make sure you come back in a fortnight for I is for.....

  1. Perfect for increasing my knowledge
    insomnia are my nephews biggest challenge

  2. Immunisations - I don't think there's a link at all personally. Information - there's loads out there these days but why it isn't given at diagnosis I don't know.

  3. Insistent - this is a word I would use to describe my son when he wants everyone to stick to the rules/routines which make him feel comfortable.

  4. Insomnia is definitely one for us, a goo night is waking around 10 times, a bad night, well we won't even get to bed. Archie regularly pulls an all nighter!! #SpectrumSunday

  5. Fab as always lovely! And thank you for including me! Thank you for linking up to #spectrumsunday. Hope you join me again this week xx

  6. Invisible :- saddens me. As you have Parental Rights and Parental Responsibilities. Seems sometimes that some Professionals have "Tunnel Vision" attitude. As of it is all about the condition. Rather than a person who happens to have a particular condition.

    You know your child, and are there to support your child. Maybe there is a need for Professionals to acknowledge presence of individual/s, parent /s etc and treat / interact with people with a Respective manner.

    Some Professionals are keen to climb the career ladder ( increase salary etc), maybe that is their focus / area of concern. As they will have to build up a theory base, pass exams etc.

    Shame that you do not feel like you are treated like a partner in care. As Caring is what you are doing for your child. The Professional is assessing your child in regards to condition, seeing child briefly. Whereas you will be spending lots of time with your child. You are providing care and hoping to do your best for your child :- Some Professional information, interaction, support etc would maybe assist you to feel valued, enabled by positive experience
