From the Gold Coast to Sovereign Hill

Posted by: Marita on: March 21, 2014

Here we are holidaying on the Gold Coast, but as every parent, especially autism parents know, you need to keep one step ahead. So whilst we are holidaying I’m preparing my girls for our return to Melbourne and a very cool Autism Friendly day out at Sovereign Hill in Ballarat.   SENSORY EXPERIENCE COMES TO […]

Sometimes People Go Away

Posted by: Marita on: August 2, 2013

Heidi’s aide has moved on to a new school and yesterday was her last day. It has been a very sad week as the aide had been with Heidi since Prep (so about 2 years they’ve had together). I prepared Heidi with this social story. Heidi made a card with some help from Annie and […]

Batman Lives At My School

Posted by: Marita on: May 4, 2013

Heidi is still very anxious at school and has been taking a transition toy to school every day. Taking a toy is not an issue but sometimes her choice of toy is not the most appropriate for school, other days there is a huge drama at home in the morning as Heidi can’t cope with […]

Scratch That

Exciting plans for tomorrow at our house. Our Teachers are on strike, so there is no school. I’m not too sad about that because Heidi at least wouldn’t have been at school tomorrow anyway. This way she isn’t missing yet another day of learning, we are averaging about 1 day a week off for both […]

Social Stories

Posted by: Marita on: March 1, 2011

I’m trying to find a social story about playing tag / chasey in the school playground. Heidi is really struggling with this game, I’m not sure if it is the turn taking aspect, the fluid nature of school playground games or what exactly.   In the meantime some helpful links I have found in my […]

Autism in our Bathroom

Posted by: Marita on: February 24, 2011

One of the things with Autism / Aspergers is that often you can’t see from a persons physical appearance that they are different. That is certainly the case with my girls. But there are some clues, here and there around our house, which give away that we do things differently. One such spot is the […]
