Why my kids with #Autism hate the dentist

We survived another trip to the dentist, with two of our kids with Autism. Part of the problem with dentists, and at least my kids on the spectrum, is sensory in nature.  There are so many strange smells, sounds, tastes, and even lighting at the dentist office. That alone can… Read more »




I have bad news and good news – Which do you want first? 

The boys are going to the dentist today. Originally, Lizze had class, and my Mom was going with me, but that’s changed. Due to a temporary, but frustrating insurance issue, Lizze will not be in class today.  Part of me is upset because I know how important it is for… Read more »




Here’s how Elliott’s dentist appointment went

He broke down a couple times but Lizze and I made sure he knew we were right there with him. While he was waiting to go back, he sat of Lizze’s lap and snuggled his Mommy for comfort.

You won’t believe what we went through just trying to get Emmett to the dentist

I can’t even begin to explain how horribly awry today has gone. I should probably just start at the beginning. Lizze got off to class without any problems and let me sleep in until it was time for her to leave. The boys and I spent the morning getting some… Read more »
