Show You Care~ Be Aware!

It’s a simple request. Yet often seems hard to fill. We work tirelessly at trying to get the world to STAND UP and take notice.  Stand up for AUTISM!  This busy buzzing world we live in. The revolving layers upon layers of matter. Physical and spiritual. So much constantly going on. I of course am so immersed in my world…”The Autistic Community” that is building. Autistic adults working together with parents of children with Autism. For the greater good.

 As I like to say, “It’s a beautiful thing!” We see it. NOW~~to help others see it. For so many years the negative images  and sad stereotypes have dominated popular culture. One movie…captured the attention of the world and closed their minds to reality. Autism is not “Rainman.” A very entertaining movie yet, not a great perception for the masses. Another movie is now here to erase the damage Rainman did. “Temple Grandin” produced by HBO. My Autism Awareness wish…is that everyone on the planet that has not seen this movie… WILL

There are so many reasons to accept Autism and make friends with it!! This is the thinking behind AutismHWY.com, my Kid’s Coloring Books and the fabulous coming event!! The 1st Annual Show you Care~Be Aware CHALK FESTIVAL! At Caliornia Burgers 353 E. Foothill Blvd. AZUSA, Cal. http://www.yelp.com/biz/california-burgers-azusa

We are bridging to each other and the community!! We are tired of isolation and no community events geared towards reaching out as friends. There are such growing numbers for people on the spectrum…it’s time the world became acquainted with us. Acquainted with real people with Autism and Aspergers. Not Dustin Hoffman’s brilliant stereotypical performance of one individual. If people learn anything else…realize that like everything in this world. Autism comes in all shapes and sizes!

Saturday morning April 16th 10:00 a.m ~3:00 p.m.  please come  on out and see for yourself. We will be celebrating our talents and practicing our skills with chalk! Raising Awareness and thoughts for a more accepting world.  ART brings hearts and minds together and this is what we aim to do!

I have seen her in action and cannot wait for the designs in store for us !! Please explore her beautiful style here… http://www.bjlane.com

Another very exciting development~~ Author/ Artist /Entrepreneur/Aspie…Jan Beaver Coad http://www.opendoortocreativity.org/ …will travel down and design a square and share her inspirations with ALL!!  She has alot of amazing things to share, show and sell.

EVOLVING…Naturally!

It is ALL we can do. We were born, we are, and we grow. Inside and out. In all shapes and directions. That is EXACTLY what makes life so damn interesting!! Some allow the boundaries to really soar, While others ground themselves. That my friends is the human condition in a “Nutshell!” All except for the inevitable “passing on”. But, that is all in good time. We are speaking about the HERE AND NOW!!

So you get that big mean nasty Diagnosis…The “A”~Word. AUTISM! What now?? Times have changed in the last 10 yrs. Now parents are given a cohesive packet of information and in some cases an informative DVD! Jon Hope at my San

Gabriel/Pomona Regional center shared with me the nice package he has implemented for my area! Still though you feel adrift. When you realize that your child is impacted in such a way. Such a way …that their future is NOT THEIR OWN.

If you allow THAT reality to impact your daily life it can be detrimental. I move on from that idea…and realize that it is my destiny. A fun destiny with my child …for LIFE! We will evolve naturally. I with my child!!Granted it won’t be anything like a “typical life” …but, as life moves into this 21st century less and less seems “TYPICAL” anyway!! Life experiences have a way of morphing into the future. The future that is shifting and changing even as we speak! One of my favorite sayings from my late-father says it all!! “Nothing is constant except change!”

Thus we land back at the original concept. “Evolving Naturally.” This is the process we go through. Diagnosis… a moment (or 2~ or 3) of denial…and then attack plan. Hopefully, we try, and try & TRY and learn, and learn & LEARN. Because there are so many TRAINS SCHOOLS of thought!! ‘CHOO~ CHOO’…&…’A B C~ 1 -2-3′!! Your family can then pick and choose what works best for you and your ASD individual!! “Finding your Formula“…to help you all EVOLVE~ NATURALLY!! At ANCA Naturally autistic.com Leo Gregory has created an amazing resource over these last 15 years!!
