The AutismHWY Blog: What it’s ALL About

In late 2009 the AutismHWY website was in the factory tuning up and preparing to plug into our brand-new electric HWY, the world-wide web! How exciting to find ourselves in a whole ‘new head space.’ In fact…a lot of whole new head spaces. Talk about mind expanding! WoW.open mind2

Only knowing my Autistic son and a handful of his Aut classmates throughout those 10 years before the website existed we were ready to get on the HWY to real Autism information. I wanted to meet and greet Autistic people of ALL ages. The things that teachers, professionals and other parents were telling me never rang true. True to the instinctual connection my Autistic son and I have. We knew this new journey  would be something spectacular, something unimaginable. Our GPS system was never quite equipped for the vast galaxy of Autistic people… friends, partners and icons we would be on the AutismHWY with. Stellar universal navigations indeed. A vast neuro-universe unto itself. A universe of thought and beautiful patterning. Super natural people we were excited to befriend, work with and learn from.

New Roster!

Already in the works! We are barely taking a breather… because baseball is still calling! We won’t be home if the Avon lady reaches out this Summer! The moms of the A-League have other plans! Not to leave out the Dads~ Because THERE IS a strong representation on board. They will have to make a new lawn-mowing schedule. Saturday mornings are taken!! We’ve had a very good turn-out for our Registration so far!! With many players returning! It is very exciting to see the influx of kids ready to give it a shot! AWESOME!

Today we had an assessment “so to speak” …just to get an idea of each player! WooHoo 3 girls were there today! Love to see that, I grew up in the dugouts of Glendora and Covina!! So lets hear it… any more players with pig-tails?? C’mon down!! PLEASE!

In the initial season the teams were randomly drawn. It worked out great for the most part. This time around we would like the “Crushers” and the “Bullets” to have a little more edge. Not to keep score and be competitive in that manner. However, we think some players need to bring-up their skills with kids near or at the same level ! It will be a delicate chemistry! We ARE all a little like mad scientists anyway, so it seems fitting lol! (I have said AUTISM means : “Finding your Formula” ) http://autismhwy.com/blog/?p=47 I have complete faith we are up to the task. We understand AUTISM & BASEBALL…and what an Explosively Awesome Combo they are!!

I had a very nice Brunch planned with a very hard-working friend so I missed today’s evaluation. I arrived as they were breaking it up. I first thought that it was a full blown game~ there were that many people there! Fantastic to see that the enthusiasm has spread!! They will not be sorry GUARANTEED!

Lora Mancini and Carol Zapata…Awesome Aut~ Moms carried out the duties today with the help of a very nice student working on his service hours. This is great, programs that encourage our youth to research and reach-out to Autism!! I can’t say enough about that ! Here’s hoping more and more of that is created! There is a real chance here to engage our youth in some… more than worthy, community service. Much like what the S.D.H.S. J.V. Softball team did this past season. The AWESOME TEAM of beauties came out to help guide our kids around the bases! Many smiles later, one of the young women did an amazing thing. Creating a service project Athletes for Autism.” Our hats off to Kayla Norrie !! THANK YOU to you , your sister Brianna and the entire team!! Oh and a special thanks to Wyatt’s “CRUSH” Jennifer Hampson! These girls recruited and scheduled extra help for each A~LEAGUE practice and game! BEYOND BOMB !! called “

Coach Megan Spano was invaluable as well! The JV Softball coach that ALSO works with autistic children!! So many AMAZING people gave of themselves. Going above and beyond at every turn. What a wonderful group of people. So hoping we all do it again and again!! Season AFTER Season. Recruiting new faces along the way!!
