From Inside the Puzzle: Raising a Child with Autism Blog

Birthday Party
August 30, 2010 1:42 PM by Devon Alley
Last weekend, A. turned 11 years old. Since we had moved to a new house that seemed like it might be large enough to accommodate a large number of kids, and since I wanted the friends from her old school to know where she lived now so that they'd be more Read More...
Filling the Buckets
August 28, 2010 10:02 PM by Devon Alley
We're visiting my grandmother this weekend, and I am absolutely surprised by the amount of politeness and empathy A. seems to be showing since we've been here. A word about visiting my grandmother -- we do it a lot. I've always been very close to both Read More...
Back To School Blues
August 25, 2010 2:01 PM by Devon Alley
Well, we all knew that we couldn't stay in this honeymoon period forever. As anticipated, A.'s difficulties in the classroom have begun. I had a sneaking suspicion that things may not be going well when A. responded with a simple shrug when I asked her Read More...
A Tear and a Smile
August 20, 2010 11:10 AM by Devon Alley
I had a great deal of anxiety about A. starting a brand new school this week. Considering all of the difficulty she seemed to have at her old school, combined with her basic social awkwardness and the problems she sometimes has with making new friends, Read More...
One Amazing Summer
August 16, 2010 1:08 PM by Devon Alley
I am really, really, really going to miss A.'s day care center. I decided to enroll A. in a different day care center over the summer than the one she had been previously attending. I didn't like her previous day care center for several reasons, and when Read More...
Unexpected Fun in Shopping
August 15, 2010 7:24 PM by Devon Alley
In A.'s world, there are many "worst days ever." However, there are just as many "best days ever." Today was rather unexpectedly labeled as one of her "best days ever," and I'm still trying to figure out exactly why. She spent this weekend with her biological Read More...
Therapy Covered In Fur
August 11, 2010 10:25 PM by Devon Alley
So, we are dog-sitting one of Thomas's cousin's dachshunds this week. The dog's name is Josie, and she's an incredibly adorable tiny little dog with a penchant for stealing socks and having her belly rubbed. Of course, for all I know, every dachshund Read More...
The "Magic" in Magic Wok
August 5, 2010 9:19 PM by Devon Alley
So, I don't know what I was so worried about. It's apparently nearly impossible for A. to commit social suicide. Despite her extreme outburst on Tuesday night, come Wednesday evening the house was full of kids again -- one of them the little boy who was Read More...
I Just Wanna Play My Pokemon Figurines All Day
August 3, 2010 10:13 PM by Devon Alley
Well, the good news is, A. is doing very, very well in daycare every day now. I don't know if it's the three-star-chart, the understanding/patience/hard work of the child care staff, or some combination of those factors, but every day when I pick her Read More...
