My Ausome Child

He is so awesome. He is an amazing, little human being. He is compassionate and loving. Yes, and wise beyond his years. He teaches us everyday. Sometimes there are meltdowns and sometimes there are sensory overloads. But, all the time, yes ALL the time – even in the midst of defying, screaming, crying – etc. – there is a boy, My Boy. A child who I love very much so. A child who deserves every great thing in the world that is beneficial for his being. A child destined for success and greatness while helping others reach their full potential. A child who is noble and string willed. A child who is unique and yet the “same” as the typical children in his age group. A child who is learning respect and the fine way to treat others- as well as all living things. A child who will defy all odds stacked against him. A child on the Autism Spectrum, my child.
It is not about awareness, it is about acceptance. Autism acceptance. That what it IS about. We are aware that autism exists – but we have to accept our children and all others on the spectrum. Give them the benefit of the doubt and never let a diagnosis define who they are. The world is a puzzle and my son is a piece that belongs to it just like every other child.
autism diagnosis
It is JUST a label. Labels are not good all the time. What happens when we do not like labels on our clothes, for example? We RIP them off!!!

I have not written a blog post in almost two weeks. The time has just been flying by. I have been working on many projects and been so emerged within my passion that I was wondering about the last blog post I made. JJ is doing very well in school. He has been improving on his homework skills and doing well all around. I do not remember exactly where we left off with his journey but all is great in the world. He plays, he messes, he laughs, he snacks and does everything a typical child does. He still loves to read, do sensory activities and create projects. He is cool, he is awesome and such a great kid overall. He has autism. AUTISM does not have him. So what does my son have? He has Compassion. He loves animals and babies. He has IMAGINATION and CREATIVITY. He has DREAMS and GOALS. He has ASPIRATIONS. He has LOVE. Autism is only a tiny chunk of who he is as a person in this world. He has HEART and CHARACTER. He is such an inspiration for pursuing our dreams and goals. We could not imagine our lives without him or autism. A blessing in disguise.

I also enjoy documenting the activities / lessons /arts & crafts I create in edited photos for Loorducation. The art of teaching and the fine art of education fascinate me. I believe in making learning fun. Learning is a hands on approach, using all senses for the ultimate learning experience. I love to design unique educational related items.

I started a http://www.facebook.com/loorducation last year. It just so happened to be a few months after I created this blog and opened http://www.twitter.com/loorducation – both were requirements for my MEd program. I had to start a blog and post things for my classes and it took a whole turn when I started sharing my son’s journey with autism. Just a few days ago, https://www.tumblr.com/blog/loorducation was created with hopes of broadening the scope of my brand, Loorducation.

Loorducation has also recently joined the Google+ Community, so we are getting all that together.

Come on over and say hi!! We are making our way around the interwebs. We hope you enjoy what we have to offer and share. There is so much more goodness to come. Thank you for being a part of this awesome journey.

As always, QUESTIONS? COMMENTS? SUGGESTIONS? Always welcome. Welcome to share. Come network.
