Gearing up for Back-to-School!

School Kids Diversity

This summer has flown by and it’s time to start thinking about the 2013-2014 school year. Parents have to start the back-to-school preparations such as shopping for school supplies, new clothes, shoes and backpacks. The more organized you are the better. Download the school supplies lists from your school website and take inventory of last year’s supplies and see if any of it can be used for this year. Start shopping early to catch the back-to-school promotions. Bring your child with you shopping so they can help you pick the supplies out. This will help them to get more in the mindset for school. Stock up on bulk supplies. Update your child’s back-to-school emergency contact and health information. Set doctor’s appointments now to get any needed immunizations for fall sports and school admissions. Try and help your child prepare for school by talking about all great things about school such as being with friends, after school sports, P.E., science and other fun school activities. If you haven’t already, start your child reading a fun book now so they can get back into the swing of things and brush up on their reading skills. Another tip is to start putting your child to bed earlier so their bodies can adjust more easily to the new routine of getting up early. The better prepared you are for back-to-school the less stressful it will be. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of your summer!!

Autism vs. Awesome-ism©

>What if we decided to just open our minds and see things from a wider, more diverse perspective?

>What if we didn't easily label and categorize people that we perceive to be different than us?

>What if we learned to think about people and differences as not right or wrong, but just different gifts?

>What if we fully believed and accepted that there is, and always has been, neurodiversity (i.e. cognitive differences) in the world?

>What if we accepted that neurodiversity is a brilliant achievement of Mother Nature?

>What if we entered each day believing each one of us is uniquely created and here to serve a higher purpose?

>What if we believed our job is to support one another in achieving that higher purpose?

>What if our differences are here to teach us appreciation, compassion, acceptance and to challenge us to stay open to all?

>What would that be like? # # #

Ryan, a 14-year old autistic student, writes:
>Meet me where I am.
>Stop trying to fix me. I don’t try to fix you.
>See my gifts, talents and strengths, not things you think I should have; see the “me” I was born with.
>Learn from me. Sit with me. Try to see the world from my perspective.
>Love me unconditionally and find ways to support me in what I came here to contribute to the world.
>Appreciate me.
>Just because I am experiencing the world in a different way than you are doesn’t mean it’s wrong, so stop judging me.
>I am me and I am beautiful.
>I am happy and I am whole. # # #
