Well, today marks the first day of Autism Awareness Month. Yesterday, we purchased our blue lightbulb and blue lantern to “light it up” not just for April 2nd – World Autism Awareness Day – but for the whole month of April.
This morning we participated in Chico’s Walk for Autism. My husband and I distributed many flyers to parents and other organizations announcing our new ASD parent support group. I got to speak to a few mothers more in-depth who, also, needed someone to talk to regarding their children and the whole process going on. I think a couple will, hopefully, attend the group or keep in touch – since my number is on the flyer.
I am pooped and am even more exhausted when thinking about what tomorrow holds:
8 AM meeting with teacher of the speech/communication class, “More than Words”, that my husband and I will be attending
8:30 AM early intervention session
11 AM play group for at-risk toddlers
Hopefully a nap, so I can work (no sitter)
However, I am looking forward to it all. And looking forward to all of April!
