Peruse our EnjoyHi5Autism sites for posts about holiday specials, social groups, community pages, special needs apps, disability legislation, ebooks, egadgets/technology, educational resources and much more!  Throughout this week, we've shared some of our favorites, including in today's 'References and Resources' section.

Yes, the autism perspectives are growing and diversifying because of global awareness campaigns.
This will probably serve as our last 2011 post for "Enjoying The Hi-5s of Autism - A Family Experience". Check our other EnjoyHi5Autism micro-blogs and social networks for end-of-the-year insights. We share articles from our affiliates and fellow Autism Spectrum advocates on Facebook, Networkedblogs and Twitter.  Today, we share a few in our 'References and Resources' section.

We are thankful for SO MANY friends who care about the 'uniquely different' Autism Spectrum world.

Stay hopeful.
Blog with you in 2012!
Be safe.

Happy holidays!

The Glenholme School  is a therapeutic boarding school for young people, ages 10 to 18, diagnosed with Asperger's, ADHD, PDD, OCD, Tourette's, depression, anxiety, and various learning differences. The program provides a treatment milieu designed to build competence socially and academically. Glenholme’s learning environment supports and enhances the success of special needs students

Glenholme Parenting Tip of the Week: Schedules help reduce anxiety by letting your child know what he or she can expect to happen each day, providing him or her with a sense of security and direction. When planning out your child’s week, use general categories like "family activity", "exercise", and "quiet time" until more specific activities are decided upon.  Wednesday at 1:38pm 12.21.2011
