Me, A Mom

3 kids and a dog

Try a fruit slushy but not a frozen one

2 cups of diced watermelon

1/2 cup of coconut water(not milk)

5 cherries(I like the mount rainier)

5 medium strawberries

1 tsp ground flaxseed

using a blender or blender wand

puree it up and drink it down

yum!

a little thicker than juice but not as cold as a smoothie ….perfect refreshing drink

to change it up add some frozen spinach

or add a splash of lime juice

even the kids liked it (except the one who knew I put coconut water in and swore she could taste strands of coconut water!?!)

A 5 is against the Law

I just started reading this workbook

and have not yet worked with my son with it

While this workbook may not change your life

it could help change the life of a child you know

that is struggling to behave appropriately in the world around

I do not know enough yet to delve into the inner workings of how to use the scale of 1-5

it can be used to reflect on  behaviors

and

also used to refer to how ones inner feeling are(think anxiety, fear, agitation, etc)

even for someone not on the “spectrum” it is good to self evaluate and know and acknowledge  what/how you are feeling

there is a website

the autism program

that can help get you started

but I strongly recommend getting the book yourself.

the autism program also has a great resource page 

and the autism society of Wisconsin also has some great information, and if you are in Wisconsin you can visit a local chapter for support and information.

you can find more at Kari’s website 5 is against the law

so

back to reading

the best way to advocate

is to educate
