What now?

Autism awareness month has come and gone. So what do we do now? Rest!

If you are able to sit back and rest than you are probably not a regular reader of this blog. Autism awareness has no end. The world needs to know-deserves to discover-the astonishing individuals surrounding them that makeup "the spectrum". This can only be accomplished when they and we, their parents and loved ones, speak up. But we have another calling, one that tragically gets over looked all too much. In our mad race to help our children progress and grow we sometimes forget to tell our kiddos how great they are. And I am not referring to how I tell my family and friends how amazing Bren is, all the while callously talking about him as if he weren't right there with us. So here is my first, of hopefully many, attempts at redemption.

To all the ASD individuals out there I say be proud of yourself. You are the hardest working people I know. You are the least judgmental people I know. You are the most rewarding people to know. Make an effort to tell the ASD(s) in your life how incredible they are.  Then take it one step further and help us build an even better CCAC for them.

Our next Parent Booster Meeting is just around the corner.

Mark your calender. The 2013 Gala planning has officially begun. And this is going to be our best year yet. But we need help, ideas and resources. 
Here is to hoping you can make it.

P.S. Our meetings are held regularly on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month. In May the 4th Saturday falls on Memorial Day weekend. For this reason we are canceling the meeting scheduled for May 26. Have a wonderful holiday!
