Jim's Autism Quote of the Day ...

I know that a lot of people no longer think I am autistic. I no longer show many of the classic symptoms of autism. With intensive therapy, I have grown past some of the more pronounced symptoms that I used to have. I know I used to be very sensitive to sound and light. I couldn’t wear new shoes. Tags still bother me. I have always struggled academically. I still focus intensely on different topics. I hated meeting new people. I often have to have information repeated several times, and if we are discussing a topic I really like – I will not let you stop talking about it. I just keep bringing it up again until the person I am talking to tries to change the subject. And if we are discussing Lamborghinis – forget it. But, I don’t flap my arms and never did. I don’t wildly bang my head. And I never bit anyone – intentionally. I am functioning. But, I am still autistic. James (Jimmy T.G.) Link

Educating the autistic child – when it starts from 18 months to 18 years

**If you are interested - we will get you clock hours for this course.

This course focuses on the educational possibilities at each phase of your child’s life. We compare the development of neurotypicals along with the your specific child to potentially map their development and outcome. We work with you to individually benchmark your child’s develop and set a target for independence. The disclaimer is that every autistic may not be independent, but we know that with the right therapies and educational background, your child’s chances are significantly enhanced. Learn with us some useful strategies to help you as you navigate the educational maze of your child’s present and future. $225
 
1004 Wednesday February 26 at 6 pm Autism and independent living: The hope. The realities. The goal.

During this course, we will discuss autism and independent living. We will talk about what it takes for the autist to live independently and discuss ways to get your child on track early for this kind of option. There are a myriad of living options for the autist, and they don’t all have to be a group home. With the right training and preparation, your child could live on their own. Jim will weigh in with his discourse to help you get started early.
