How can you help?
Thanks for asking.
We are shy 12 page views.
So, pass on 'EnjoyHi5Autism' links to your family and friends.
We are a family-friendly blog.
In other words, your kids may enjoy our holiday, vacation, back-to-school and out-of-school, toys and apps entries. Likewise, Parents enjoy our weekly posts covering a broad range of topics: family fun, special education and reliable resources. Remember to check our' References and Resources' links posted at the end of most of our entries.
As always, we appreciate all of our 'visible' Followers and 'invisible' Supporters. We enjoy viewing the 'EnjoyHi5Autism Family' stats to see which continents, countries, states, and cities of our encouraging families and supporters.
Let us know if you have any campaigns, education or special needs legislation, school fundraisers and similar interests that you would like us to discuss or post. We enjoyed successfully advocating with Twellow to add Special Needs & Disability Awareness categories: Developmental Disabilities, Developmental Delays, Sensory Processing Disorder, Sensory Integration Disorder, Neurological Disorders and Learning Disabilities.
Peruse our stories to read what we wrote in 2010 and 'Tweet with Twellow for Special Needs' on September 29, 2011.
Additionally, as a Partners in Policymaking Graduate, we were honored to help spread the word about school legislation pertaining to 'Restraints and Seclusion' for many campaigns, organizations and states, including,
TASH; and legislation authored by Louisiana State Senator Jack Donahue with the Louisiana Developmental Disabilities Council of the Administration on Developmental Disabilities, LaTEACH(Louisiana Together Educating All Children) and the Louisiana Department of Education and the Board of Elementary & Secondary Education.
By the way, if you've read all of our posts, thus far,...
check out CCE News!
hint!!! It's the FAPE, LEA that provides Inclusion, LRE, Modifications and Accommodations, and Speech Language, Assistive Technology and Adaptive Physical Education and Occupational therapies as part of the Special Education Services our 6 year old son has received since he was 3 years old.
We know we keep sharing about CCES, but, it's good to talk about the positives, as well as, give constructive improvement suggestions/comments about our kids school systems.
So, here's a post-tonsillectomy so glad to be back at school update!
Currently, Joshua is enjoying his Mild/Moderate with a class therapy dog, as well as, Kindergarten Classmates and Teachers. Also, he enjoys the Sensory Room, the school-based after-school P.A.L.S.' Play and Learn Social Skills' which is based on the 'Model Me Kids' videos and second STEP Curriculum of the Committee for Children. We really enjoy using the apps on our iPad, especially for 'Going Places'. Additionally, he enjoys preparing for these upcoming events:
- CCE Mardi Gras Ball
- PTA 2k Fun Run Walk
- Principals Reading Reward Water Fun Day!
Hope your children are enjoying their school, too!
