Another Week Gone and Still Not Productive

Well, another week has passed and I’m still not productive. I managed to write one new article for Mother’s Day yesterday and so far that’s it. We have to go to ABA for two hours this morning and spend almost an hour at OT this afternoon. Lately I’ve been reexamining how you raise an Autistic child on a budget. My budget is under evaluation to find reductions.

We’ve had a good week so far. We’re working on day seven without a tantrum and for an autistic child that’s a great achievement. That means that so far she has not become overwhelmed or frustrated because the words to express her needs are there but refuse to come out. I hear so many people depressed when they find out that their beautiful babies have what has been called an affliction of Autism. It’s not the children that are afflicted but those that do not yet understand just how smart they are and that with a little help while they are young they can become productive citizens.
