Brock’s Academy Wishes You a Happy 4th of July 2014!

This holiday let your children know about what the 4th of July represents.  Explain to them that America celebrates its birthday on the 4th of July to signify its independence from Britain.

“As children get older, they can begin to understand what independence means,” says Mary Eames, UCCI, Education Director of the Wellesley College Child Study Center. “When you become independent, you get a lot of freedom but you also get a lot of responsibility.”  Freedom and responsibility go hand-in-hand.  While Americans are free, we have a responsibility to be good citizens, follow the law and give back to the community.  Without responsibility and consequences for our actions, we cannot be free.

Boys and Flag Take some time this weekend to go on a family field trip and visit a historical site, such as the Fort Lewis Museum.  The site also lists Washington State historical sites.  Or go online and have your children read about the History of the American Revolution.  Teach your children the freedoms American’s enjoy today were hard-fought and won by our forefathers.  We should not take them for granted.

Brock’s Academy hopes everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July weekend!  Enjoy the fireworks, BBQ’s, parades and spend time with your family and friends.

Autism vs. Awesome-ism©
By Dr. Melodee Loshbaugh, Co-founder & Executive Director of Brock’s Academy, Woodinville, WA

>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. # # #
