A MESSAGE TO SCHOOL TO KICK OFF THIS AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH!

2 Apr

April is a fantastic month! Not only is it the month I was born but it’s also Autism awareness month. And today the 2nd April is a huge day for those affected and touched by autism! As today is World Autism awareness day. As many will know I love to pack the blog full of fantastic features through April. This year will be no exception. But this year I wish to kick off the month by doing something different. Many of us will kick off world Autism Day by sending a message to the world in relation to a loved one or friend In the hope of creating Awareness. Well this year I’m doing things a little different! My World Autism message goes out to little mans schools.

Hello school so glad you could join us in raising awareness for autism. First all I feel It’s important to clear things up! I understand my blog is upsetting for you and it’s causing some stress! Well I’m very sorry it wasn’t meant like that! This is my space, it’s a place I come to write about my life with little man. The blog is written from my point of view. I write about many different areas that surround our lives as a family. I’m very sorry to say school happens to be one of them. I’m not setting out to hurt anybody. I started this blog back when I first discovered it was likely little man was on the autism spectrum. I can not begin to express how hard that was for us. With little support and hard times a head I started posting my experiences good & bad. If you look back over the last year and a half maybe you will begin to see that this is about US not YOU. Yes the school is mentioned a fair bit! But school is a big part of little mans live and I wont leave it out. I’m glad you visit the blog why not see it as feedback from a parent instead of a personal attack? This blog has helped me to connect with others, it’s opened doors to support I would never of known was out there. It’s also helped me gain confidence to voice my opinions and be able speak up for the things I believe in. I’m sorry to say it’s not always about school ( Thank God! ) but at this moment in time much of it has been. I’m not happy about this but it happening! I just want to remind you that this is my blog, it’s not a statement or an official government document it’s just a blog. My aim remains the same, To raise awareness for Autism. And as a parent to a child on the spectrum I’m sorry to say it will never change. My children are my life and I will speak out for each and every one of them. However I wish to state that I’m pleased your concerns have been brought to me as I have a greater understanding as to why you have been treating me in such a way. I do wish to say sorry to anybody that have found themselves stressed or upset through reading of this blog. It is not targeted at anyone other than the world as a whole. I’m just doing what millions off others do every single day writing a blog! so I’m sorry to say that I will carry on with my story in the hope that it shines a more positive light! If it upsets you, I suggest ( Not in a rude way ) that you reframe from visiting. The comment box is there for all to use so you are more than welcome to share future concerns.

I thank you school for your understanding and hope you and I can work together as one to better little mans education. After all that’s whats important.

To everybody else I look forward to raising awareness a long side you in the hope of bringing change for our children and anyone else who needs it ( Lets not forget when children with Asd grow to be adults they tend to like to speak for their self ) Lets not forget whats important here! It’s not the people with autism that need changing or fixing, It’s the way society see them that needs to change. Stop trying to solve something that isn’t s problem or fix something that isn’t broken. Instead embrace something that is beautiful.

A well over due update!i

God how slack am I! I really can’t believe that I have not posted anything since the beginning of July ( How poor and Lazy is that )

Well family life is going OK. Little man and his sister are great and looking forward to returning to school On Monday. We had so much planed for the school holidays but sadly not much of it happened. As most of you know I’m 7m pregnant and my iron levels have been up and down making me really tired! Then there was the summer heat which was horrid:( So we are hoping to take the children away for a few days before baby is born. As there was cases off swine flu at little mans school before they broke up they had a extra week off so little man did not get to meet his new teacher. I am a little worried we will have problems! Like most children with ASD he hates change. I have tried to prepare him for this but who knows? His not happy about not working with Mr Ally anymore who he formed a fantastic bond with. Also as most know little man is a very poor sleeper and has been taking Meds for sometime. Since breaking up his routine has gone up the wall and it has been hard trying to get the little bugger to bed lol. Lets hope all turns out OK and the new school year goes well. I’m really hoping his school pull out all the stops and the school Senco goes all out on offering and giving him any extra support my son may need. His never really been a fan of school but I’m hoping this year he gets more happy and settled as I really don’t want to stress things out more with the sudden change of a new school! And with a new baby on the way  I want little man to be as comfortable as possible.

Talking off being comfortable can you believe our house is still not completed after the ceiling fell in back in April! Yes they have done the ceiling but the rest of  the room is still a building site. We had just spent a fortune decorating only to see it turn to dust. We are still waiting on the walls being plastered as the impact of the fall caused the walls to blow:( This is supposed to be done this coming Monday ( finger and toes crossed ) Our new Kitchen and bath room is going to be done by November phew. Just in time for the birth of my son. I really don’t want my baby coming home to a war zone.

Last but not least I really need to rant. When I  logged on tonight I discovered a comment on one of my post that upset me so much I was in tear! Normally I would not let stuff like this upset me as their are some dumb people out there with nothing but crap to say but hay maybe it’s my hormones! This person Wanted to tell me his views on people with Aspergers. Well my son is a retard, a wimp and needs to be locked up. Whoever you are please don’t comment on my blog anymore!!! You are a truly sad individual and i prey u get whats coming to you.

Well thanks for reading and I will  be sure to update soon.
