The Intricate Difficulties with Social Relationships
July 31, 2010 8:29 AM by Devon Alley
For the most part, A. has had a pretty good week this week. This is not to say that the week has been without troubles or meltdowns, of course. We've had a couple of struggles with me trying to get A. to perform some very basic chores around the house Read More...
Skate Clinics and Pokemon Conversations
July 26, 2010 11:32 AM by Devon Alley
On Saturday, A. and I attended another Autism Society of America: Friendship Club event. This event was centered around skateboarding. Initially, A. was very reluctant to go to the event. In fact, when she woke up in the morning, she actually refused Read More...
There Ain't No Bugs On Me
July 23, 2010 9:52 PM by Devon Alley
Last Friday, A. had the most unexpectedly amazing time on a field trip where I was *completely* expecting her to have the Worst Meltdown Ever. I've been putting off posting about it because I was hoping to acquire some pictures of the adventure, but I Read More...
Really Great Therapy Session
July 22, 2010 7:16 PM by Devon Alley
On Monday, A. had another session with her talk therapist. I must confess, this particular session went much better than previous sessions. I think, first of all, I did a better job of preparing A. for the event -- I told her a great deal in advance that Read More...
Behavior Charts, Cuddle Prescriptions, and the Magic of Snacks
July 21, 2010 4:44 AM by Devon Alley
The behavior chart I threw together for daycare has apparently been working wonders. Her teachers talk about it as if it were a magical system which automatically altered A.'s behavior back to where it was when she first started this summer. It seems Read More...
What Is Parenting But A Series Of Scientific Experiments?
July 13, 2010 10:04 PM by Devon Alley
Thomas often pokes fun at me by referring to A. as my "long-term scientific experiment." The funny thing is, in some ways, that's actually pretty accurate. With A., I am often confronted with a problem or an issue -- sometimes, it's a problem or issue Read More...
Adventures Of A Daring Girl
July 9, 2010 5:00 PM by Devon Alley
It's been a relatively quiet past couple of days. A. has oscillated between various mood swings, and she did have one rather large meltdown at day care. However, they've been going swimming most of the week, which is A.'s favorite activity of all time, Read More...
Bays Mountain Fail
July 6, 2010 8:28 PM by Devon Alley
I feel as if I should let my friend, Dustin, ghost-write this entry for me, considering the issues and adventures he's undergone today, but considering I didn't have the chance to talk to him about it before he left, I suppose I'll do my best to tell Read More...
No News Is Good News...?
July 2, 2010 8:21 PM by Devon Alley
Well, I had hoped to have a little more information to share by the time I wrote my next blog entry, but unfortunately I've heard nothing more from the doctor on what could have been causing A.'s extensive tummy troubles. Hopefully, we will learn something Read More...
