I did a thing! Guest blog for Sprout Therapy Services

I am very happy to share my first guest blog post for Sprout Therapy Services! You can find it here:

Thoughts from a grown up with Autism

Sprout does some fantastic early intervention therapies for children with special needs, including my own niece and nephew! They are so lucky to be growing up in a society that is ever changing and becoming more accepting and encouraging of people with special needs. If you know of any family or friends with special needs kids, please share with them so they can check out some unique and beneficial programs that can help their children grow and develop.

Special thanks to Krista and Monica at Sprout for getting me involved with their blog x

  1. Thank you so much for your guest post Catherine.
    I am mum to a precious and Autistic 6 yr old girl. She was told about her diagnosis from the beginning.
    For her, Autism still has plenty of challenges ahead, but we are always looking for ways to point out the special benefits it gives her too. Noise may overwhelm her some days, but on the positive side, she has superhero hearing for when the ice cream truck is still a kilometre away, she may be overwhelmed by too much movement and colour some days, but on the positive side, she can find the one dark pink bead, amongst thousands of red beads needed to finish a pretty necklace.
    We will always acknowledge every triumph over a challenge, whilst looking for the positives, in what is a world full of new outcomes for us.
    For me, I am learning a whole new world of thinking and discovery exists, outside the box that my NT brain thinks in. My daughter is my teacher, because for her, Autism is nothing to be ashamed of and something to be shared with the world.

  2. Hi Simone! Sorry it has taken me so long to reply but your comment was so special to me that I wanted to make sure I had the time to write a thoughtful reply.

    Thank you so much, it’s so wonderful to hear how proud you are of your daughter for her unique talents and that you are always looking for ways to point out the positives! That is such a supportive attitude and one that will greatly boost your daughter’s self confidence and help her in the future. Your comment about your daughter finding the one dark pink bead amongst thousands of red beads made me laugh; this is something that I am also able to do and it reminded me just how special we can be and that we have so much to offer the world with our unique talents. Your Autism-positive attitude is inspiring and I thank you for being exactly the kind of role model your daughter deserves
