I’m so proud of him

I had a conversation with someone today (did a video about it here) and I remembered a bit more about why I started doing everything I do. It was a reminder to me that while evolution and growth can be positive things, it’s important to stay true to your roots. I’ve been thinking alot about …

The coolest thing happened today

As the title states, the coolest thing happened today. I’ve been talking about Gavin’s ever-growing level of independence, and today marked a big first for him.

Goally is the perfect tool for helping my son prepare for independent living

The COVID pandemic has been a nightmare. While it does appear to be moving in the right direction, at least for now, it’s still keeping me apart from the people I love. That part is really challenging but someday soon, we’ll find ourselves on the other end of this. It hasn’t been all bad though. …

I just defused an argument between Gavin and Elliott that was very quickly exculating. While this wasn’t stupid or pointless, it was completely avoidable. Gavin had been doing something, on purpose, …

Helping my adult #autistic son find independence

Gavin is bound and determined to move out. Until recently, I hadn’t really considered that to be an option but this is what he wants. As his parent, I want him to reach whatever level of independence he can achieve. With that in mind, I’m getting the ball rolling on this. The process is likely …

This isn’t supposed to happen

It’s Gavin’s 21st birthday and we were off to a good start. His IVIG Infusion supplies showed up and he immediately went to work. Whenever he gets his supplies, I’ve taught him to put together kits containing everything he needs for each infusion. This serves a dual purpose. It helps him to learn how to …
