Writing Resources

child_writingWriting can be a frustrating business. Unlike Math and Science there are often no clear rules to follow, no steps to take to get to the right answer. Yet writing remains an important life skill, even in today’s technologically advanced society. Sending emails, creating presentations, writing applications or filling out reports, most adults write in their day to day life. And explaining how to write can also be frustrating, as most of us make writing choices based on intuition and feel, things which are difficult to describe or give reason for.

In order to help, here are some resources on explaining the craft of writing. Whether your child is frustrated with writing essays, book reports or stories, or would just like to learn more about writing, these resources have been selected for authors of all ages!

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. # # #
