    Hi Everyone,

    The current cover story in Newsweek is on autism, entitled "Understanding Autism".

    We hope everyone supports this type of coverage by picking up a copy of the magazine; the article is available at http://www.msnbc.com/news/436601.asp?cp1=1

    Regards,

    Re: Success/brag stories

    David:

    I think that is an excellent idea! I don't know about everyone else but when I started, I used to search the web for success stories and clung to them for hope. Now when I am down, it's great to hear of both great quick breakthoughs of the younger kids but also the breakthroughs and achievments of the kids still doing programs after a few years. It gives you hope for the future. Reminds you that for some of us, this isn't a race but a marathon and to keep your eye on the ball, stay focused and keep moving toward your goal- your child's personal best. It might even be a neat idea to initially give a brief overview of where the kids were when they started ABA and how they are now.

    Dave,
    That's a great idea. This way I remember and re-enforce those wonderful positive moments that are so easy to forget in the midst of problems and challenges.

    Good for thinking this, Dave.

    Hi everyone,

    The other night I was having this brainstorm, it doesn't happen offen, but I thought, wouldn't it be cool if we could have a separate area in the chat, to talk about how well the kids are doing. Like a progress area, or more like a brag area. Somewhere on the chat to say, hey this kids are making progress.

    I don't know if my own experience is unique, but telling someone that the kid didn't wake up last night seem terribly exiting, or he's eating with utensils or all the small steps that he is taking towards being better are not really significant to other people or friends with typical children.

    I thought wouldn't it be cool have a place to really brag about the kids. The people reading would really get it, and how significant those small steps are. Most of the time when we go on the chat, it's about problems that we are having with just about everything.
    I just thought it would do us all a bit of good to show that all the hard work that we do with these kids have a payoff. Belive me I know how hard we all work. So just a thought, what does every one think

    Michelle is wondering if there are any kids that
    are doing phonics, and what kind of toys or
    gizmos are bing used in their program. We
    tried some toys but, we found that our guy was
    just stimming on the toy rather that getting any
    real benifit from the toy play itself. if you got a
    real cool toy or gizmo that seem to work.
    contact Michelle at 882-9196. or post it on the
    board and we can all try them and post the
    results.

    many thanks
