From Inside the Puzzle: Raising a Child with Autism Blog

Vacay to DC
March 31, 2010 10:31 AM by Devon Alley
Our Family Vacation to Washington, D.C. was very interesting, to say the least. I'd thought I'd prepared for every possible crisis. I packed plenty of snacks and drinks, tons of entertainment options for A., and did my very best to *not* overload each Read More...
Difficult Days and Dramatic Statements
March 26, 2010 10:28 AM by Devon Alley
I'm probably breaking some sort of blogging etiquette by posting two entries within scant hours of each other, but our experience Tuesday was such a solid "win" that I wanted it to stand and shine on its own. Especially since the rest of the week has Read More...
Measuring Life in Music Programs
March 26, 2010 8:22 AM by Devon Alley
Tuesday night, A. participated in her annual music program at school. It may sound crazy, but I tend to measure her overall developmental progress by these programs and how well she does. Every single year, watching her on stage along with all the other Read More...
A Case of the Mondays
March 23, 2010 8:14 PM by Devon Alley
Well, yesterday was certainly interesting. We started out on a bad foot on Monday because I realized Sunday night that A. had a short worksheet she had to fill out that was due the next day, and I permitted her to wait to complete it in the morning. What Read More...
Carl Sagan Apple Pie
March 21, 2010 6:33 PM by Devon Alley
A. has had a fairly good weekend, as far as weekends go. She spent the majority of the weekend with her father and paternal grandparents, and reportedly had a very good time, going to the park, eating spaghetti, watching her dad and uncle play pool, and Read More...
Bringing Good Things Home
March 18, 2010 12:51 PM by Devon Alley
So far, it's been a fairly decent week for A. She started out on the wrong foot on Monday, but Daylight Savings Time almost always wreaks havoc in A.'s life, for the first few days at least. By Wednesday, she seemed to have settled down a bit, bringing Read More...
Autism Society of America Friendship Club - Game and Activity Day
March 13, 2010 6:08 PM by Devon Alley
This afternoon, the East Tennessee chapter of the Autism Society of America organized a Friendship Club meeting focused on board games and more structured activities. They had the misfortune, of course, of assigning part of the organizing duties to me Read More...
Kids Will Be Kids, and OT Evaluations
March 10, 2010 8:44 PM by Devon Alley
Well, we've definitely had a rather eventful week! A. continued to do well at school with her Behavior Schedule, and she continued to be in a fairly pleasant mood in the evenings. Meanwhile, I did the best I could to prepare her for the fact that I would Read More...
New Behavior Schedule For the Win!
March 4, 2010 12:32 PM by Devon Alley
A. seems to be doing much better at school these past few days. I think this is probably largely due to the fact that she has a few new tools that seem to be helping her regulate her emotions and behavior a little more easily. The autism consultant and Read More...
Organizing Reevaluations
March 2, 2010 6:59 PM by Devon Alley
Today, I had a meeting with A.'s school to discuss her upcoming reevaluation. To be honest, I was a little intimidated by the whole process. I've been through enough of these by now that I understand that I really don't need to be, but I wasn't expecting Read More...
