👀Link to website in bio. 💕I don’t really like the word “nonverbal”- mainly because our kids are verbal- they just can’t show us without the right tools. But this is how kids who are nonspeaking are currently labeled and described in the medical and research community. If you’re a parent who has a child who is nonspeaking, take a peek at my recommendations!

Merriam Webster.com defines ableism as “discrimination or prejudice against individuals with disabilities”. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
At first glance, discrimination against “high functioning” autistics may not appear to be ableism. After all, isn’t it a compliment to tell someone they seem high functioning or don’t seem autistic? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
No. It is absolutely not. And here’s why:⁣⁣
⁣⁣
1. It’s invalidating. It tells me that the label which describes my experiences and struggles so aptly—which gives me a sense of comfort and an explanation—must be incorrect; that my experience is invalid; that someone else knows me better than I know myself. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
2. It makes light of the struggles that I, and other “high functioning” autistics face daily. It tells us that we don’t struggle to the same degree that people with “real autism” do because we’ve worked hard to mask, alter our behavior, and seem more neurotypical. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
3. It is presumptuous. It’s based upon the assumption that anyone who’s verbal or seemingly “normal” has always been that way—That we’ve never struggled with self-injury, being nonverbal, basic self-care, or any other “severe” symptoms. It also sometimes assumes that, because someone can use the internet, they must not be nonverbal, which is an another inaccurate assumption. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
To discredit someone’s experience as disabled or neurodivergent because it does not align with your expectations is absolutely ableist. And it isn’t only allistics who propagate this ableism; sometimes fellow autistics can be our harshest critics. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So before you speak, think about the person on the receiving end of your comments. Think about how what you’re saying would feel if it was said to you. And don’t try to gatekeep the autism SPECTRUM with functioning labels. ⁣⁣

Today my baby boy has officially been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum and Pica.
To my Baby Boy. We finally did it. We finally got the answer that we've been expecting for the past 2 years. I promise you now this doesnt change anything. You will always be my world and more. We know you struggle but I promise you now we will get through it together. You and your sister are my everything. Everything will hopefully get easier for you in time but i am with you every step of the way. I love you so much. You are perfect!! You wouldn't be Caleb without your disability. I wouldn't change you for the world. 💖💖💖💖 #autisticspectrumdisorder #autism #diagnosis #autismdiagnosis #nonverbalautism #nonverbal #asd #babyboy #son #pica #medical #love #world

Yesterday I had a rare day and evening off parenting duties to go out and celebrate my birthday (which is tomorrow 😁) These nights off are always something I really look forward to. Having the chance to switch off for a few hours and spend time with friends and family is so important.
As I spoke about on Friday, being a parent can be stressful and tiring. Being a parent of children with special needs adds a whole extra set of challenges to the mix, and often leaves people feeling like they’re struggling to cope.

Being a full time single parent/carer, meeting Jude and Tommy’s needs often means making sacrifices. Putting their needs first. Which is fine, that’s what we need to do.

But doing this can also mean you lose a bit of your identity. By not looking after yourself, or doing things that you need to do for you, it means you’re not doing anything to relieve the stress that builds up over time.

A few years back I didn’t really enjoy going out and seeing people. Things were so difficult at home that I felt like I was faking being happy when I did. I was more worried about what might be happening at home, or what might happen the next day that I couldn’t relax and enjoy myself.

This year has been a difficult one and meant I’ve had much less free time again. Over the summer I went 3 months without a night off, and I started to feel like I was in a slump again. Not having a night off isn’t so bad when you have another adult at home to share your life with, but when you don’t it can get pretty lonely.

And it’s made me realise for me, for my own identity and mental health, being social is a fundamental part of me being happy. That’s what helps me cope with the hard days, helps relieve my stress.
It’s something I need to work on, to find a way to have more regular free time. So that I can spend more time with friends and family, maybe even have a new relationship one day, without it disrupting or affecting Jude and Tommy.
Finding a way to make our lives more rounded not only improves our happiness, but it gives us the energy, the patience, the mindset to be the parent we want to be. The parent our kids need us to be ❤️

November is the month of gratitude. This weekend was hard, depressing. I had feelings I haven’t felt in a long time hit me all at once. Gabe was sick. I could barely get out of bed. Caroline was there. She took care of Gabe without a second thought. She took care of me like she always does. I am not worthy of her, that is the truth. We talked a lot on Saturday night and she shared something with me I never knew, but was not at all surprised by. In high school she won an award called Saint Caroline. It’s funny because that’s what my friends have always called her. How did I get so lucky to find this person? @ckcrab7 I am so grateful for you. Thank you for being the constant positive force in our lives. Gabe feels the love and I know that you have changed him. He is happy and he is loved. I’m a better mother because of you. You are so much more than that to me though. That’s just the bonus. #fortheloveofgabe #autism #autismmom #autismo #autismawareness #autismacceptance #specialneedsparenting #specialneeds #aac #augmentativecommunication #proloquo2go #touchchat #autismspeaks #spectrum_inspired

In our efforts to help Lilly communicate, we have generally avoided language that is ineffective by itself or only for etiquette - words like “more”, “that”, “please” and “thank you”. Hear me out, because I know some people think it’s awful to have zero desire to teach a kid manners - but if a kiddo with limited speech walks up to you and says “please”, do you have any idea at all what they want? Probably not. However, if they walk up to you and say “pretzel”, you know exactly what they want. So after years of avoiding words that don’t have major meaning by themselves, mama got all crazy and decided to model new language for the kiddo today, with the help of a huge reinforcer - Trader Joe’s freeze dried raspberries! I mean...Lilly can request for just about anything under the sun, so today she is learning to ask for “more” of a previous request and adding in manners just for fun 🤣Well, she caught on amazingly and was so cute with her new language 💕 She did this like 10 times and ended up eating the whole bag. Guess we will see if it continues to make sense in the future to work on these kinds of words, but for today, Mama is basking with pride (and hoping Lilly’s SLPs don’t slap my hands lol) 💕 #LoveMyLillybug #AAC #Autism #proloquo2go #raspberries #ProudMama #BestKidEver

I’m working with an awesome mom right now.
⠀⠀
Her son doesn’t eat fruit.
⠀⠀
But that doesn’t stop her from packing it in his lunchbox every day.
⠀⠀
She could just send him with his favorites.
⠀⠀
But by including foods he doesn’t like YET, she is giving him the CHANCE to try fruit when he is ready.
⠀⠀
He wouldn’t get that opportunity if she didn’t pack it every day.
⠀⠀
I also love that she packs fruit because it helps her son learn to be more comfortable with it.

There are moments when I just want to cry and it has nothing to do with autism or parenting and the overwhelming feelings and pressure that comes with being responsible for another human being. As Gabe has been sick and resting I’ve been given an opportunity to reflect on my life and things that have happened over the last 15 years when I moved to MD from NY. Before he was even born. I’ve buried my feelings so deep by keeping busy, being a mom, a partner, stressing about money, etc...Now I am left with these feelings and I have to experience the grieving process again. I took a long break, but I’ve decided I need to deal with it. This morning I was watching some videos of the past. These are moments that lift me up when all I want to do is get in my bed and listen to the sound of thunderstorms on my noise machine. I’m sharing this video of Gabe and Gaby from when she came to @Zamdance with us awhile back. #fortheloveofgabe #autism #autismmom #autismacceptance #autismawareness #autismo #nonverbal #nonverbalautism #specialneeds #specialneedsparenting #aac #augmentativecommunication #zamdance #autismspeaks

Autism is not a tragedy, ignorance is. Until the world understands the differences, we must never stop telling the stories. Families of those with Autism have got to do it. If we don’t, no one will.

I made the mistake this morning of trying to tell Tommy it was “Daddy’s Birthday today.” All he heard was ‘birthday’ and spent the hour before school following me around, closing his eyes and hoping when he opened them there’d be a present waiting for him 😂

Then it was off for our @sharing_stories_about_autism parents meet up in Basildon. A coffee morning, meeting with other parents, giving them a chance to share stories, advice, and just have a chat in a safe space with people who get it.

And after a couple of hours of Netflix this afternoon, it’s been a nice relaxing evening with Tommy, who’s seemed to have forgotten any mention of the word birthday 😁

Instead he’s more interested in making me name every mark, mole, or freckle that he can find on his body 🙃

And then sit with him on the sofa whilst he flicks through YouTube, juggles his ball, and raises his foot like this, over and over 🤷‍♂️ So a good day all round. Last but not least, a massive thank you for all of the birthday wishes over the last couple of day’s. I really appreciate all of the love and support you show me and my boys ❤️
