Sorry for not posting anything for a long time. Besides being swamped with work (for a residential facility hellbent on moving institutionalized individuals into the community; will get into this in another post), they updated their network servers which now block my ability to blog at work (the nerve, right??). It winds up being easier to post to the Beyond Autism Awareness Facebook page , or tweet links and stories on Twitter. Like the rest of you, I am usually too busy or tired after work to post anything of value, or more likely than not, life in general just gets in the way. But that’s commonplace for families on the Spectrum, so I know you understand.
Sooo, what’s new on this end? Well just a few things, really. Mike continued to learn new things in his Computer class given by the Nassau County PAL Special Needs Unit, and is continuing to make progress in school. He had a successful season with his Farmingdale Splash friends that culminated in winning 2 medals at a Special Olympics swim meet. He was really proud of himself, and of course, so were we.
He also had 2 of his drawings featured at the Long Island Children’s Museum, alongside some of his peers.
Last but not least, he wrote a short biographical piece that will be featured on The Golden Hat Foundation’s Blog page.
All in all, it’s been a really hectic year so far, and I hope it continues; every step regardless of how small is always a step forward.
Peace to you all. -Ed
