Stone Meets The Old Spaghetti Factory

Posted by on February 17, 2011 in Autism, Parenting |

Tonight we took our Au Pair Hany out for a birthday celebration dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory. Her birthday was actually a few weeks ago but it coincided with the flu outbreak that hit the twins and Renee for a week so we weren’t able to celebrate it at that time. I think that […]

Treating Autism – How do you know what works?

Posted by on February 3, 2011 in Autism, Parenting, Showcase |

One of the most common questions I get from friends and family members is “How is Stone doing? Is he still making progress?” And fortunately, I’m able to provide the same answer most of the time. “He’s doing great, making slow and steady progress. He’s happy.” What does progress mean when you’re dealing with highly […]

How do you manage stress?

Posted by on January 6, 2011 in Life, Work |

Stress is a condition that seems nearly unavoidable in our society. And it also seems that it’s become even more prevalent  the past 10 years – I’d like to think its simply tied to having more “grown up” responsibilities such as kids, home mortgage, etc. but I think its more than that. Certainly the past […]

Note: I’m writing this blog post at 4:30 am. Being awake this time of night is not unusual (unfortunately). One of the common issues faced by parents of kids with autism is sleep deprivation. For some reason, sleepless nights often seem to come with raising a child with Autism. And parents everywhere search for answers. […]

New World of Pediatric Dentistry

Posted by on December 12, 2010 in Autism, Parenting |

Does anyone remember ever going to a pediatric dentist as a kid? Such things didn’t exist for my generation growing up. I think we all went to the same type of dentist – whichever one mom and/or dad were already seeing (or insurance covered). I remember the dentist office I visited for years in Concord, […]

Brave New World: No more Little Einsteins

Posted by on December 1, 2010 in Autism, Parenting |

I have written about how much Stone loves the Disney cartoon series Little Einsteins. It has been his favorite (and really only) show since he was about 2 years old. Trying to be good parents, we used our DVR to record as many episodes as possible so that he would have plenty to choose from […]

Busting Autism Myths – Affection and Interaction

Posted by on November 28, 2010 in Autism, Parenting |

Like most people, I really didn’t know a lot about Autism before learning about it first hand through Stone. But I’ve learned a ton – and continue to learn – through books, websites and of course personal experience. Although Autism awareness is gradually growing among the general population, I think that many perceptions are still […]

Stone progress report – October 2010

Posted by on October 22, 2010 in Autism, Parenting |

It’s been a few months since my last update on Stone so I thought it would be a good time to provide a synopsis of his progress. And the good news is we continue to see progress with him. In my last update, I talked about how Stone and Ty were both enrolled in a […]
