#Repost @charliesleiman ・・・ Part 29 - Would it have been easier to bypass the heartache and challenges associated with Joshua v1.0 and go straight to v2.0?….......Absolutely. However, this journey has given us the strength and education to not only help ourselves but others in the same boat. So how did Josh change? Honestly,………. I have no f*cking idea. I think it was more a combination of everything than any one thing. I had many plans for my boy and I when he was born. Ignorantly, I thought Autism had stolen our son's future. Now I realise that the path we’re on has us destined for greater things. Things not possible had Josh not been diagnosed. Would I change him? Definitely not. At the beginning it is all I wanted to do. I kept looking for ways to ‘fix’ him and make the Autism disappear. Then I thought about it, this is who Josh is. Would you make a Chef's love for food disappear? What about making a race car driver's love for speed disappear? These are qualities as a result of a brain wiring. Similarly, it is the quirks that we love about him. As his sisters have their own special qualities, Josh too has his own unique traits and this is who he is. The way he holds my hand when we’re out walking, how hard he hugs me as I kiss him good night or how you can hear him belting out a song from the other side of the house. These are some of those little special moments that you cherish forever. #autism #autismawareness #worldautismawarenessday #april2 #autismawarenessmonth #asd #doingitforjoshua #autismspectrum #autismspectrumdisorder #specialneeds #kidswithautism #adultswithautism #livingwithautism #autismdad #blue #goblueforautism #denial #support #help #story #mystory #blog #lifewithautism #journal #book #tobepublished #dad #father #dadofautism

Every now and then you come across a video that absolutely kicks your ar$e. They don't get much better than this. Here a father takes his son who has Autism to watch his favourite band....Coldplay. Emotions get the better of the kid. You need to watch the rest. Apologies for the quality but you can check the full clip on YouTube. I took my son to his first concert the other week and know how I felt back then. I could only imagine this dad's emotions. @meliciouscakehouse @autismarmy @_mrsheen @autismaustralia #autism #autismawareness #worldautismawarenessday #april2 #autismawarenessmonth #asd #doingitforjoshua #autismspectrum #autismspectrumdisorder #specialneeds #kidswithautism #adultswithautism #livingwithautism #autismdad #blue #goblueforautism #denial #support #help #story #mystory #blog #lifewithautism #journal #book #tobepublished #dad #father #dadofautism #fatherofautism

#Repost @erica.harr with @repostapp. ・・・ Autism Awareness Month - day 26! Here is toddler Jessie - probably somewhere around the time that my parents noticed things were different. Because Jessie and I are very close in age, they had a pretty recent comparison of when milestones seemed delayed or even just different. My mom was also keeping records of those milestones and took note when the babbling Jessie had been doing stopped. Because autism wasn't very common at the time, and because of things like Jessie's connection to us or going up and down a set of stairs different ways, it took a while for her to receive an official diagnosis of autism. But I always admire my parents for searching for answers - especially since even then we weren't far from the "refrigerator mother" theory. Did you know that there was a time when people thought autism was a result of "refrigerator mothers" - meaning that mothers were so cold and unfeeling to their children they caused them to become autistic? While my mother alone could discredit this theory, I am always struck by how heartbreaking this could have been to anyone searching for answers... #autismacceptance #autismawarenessmonth2016 #auntjessieisourhero #lifewithautism #refrigeratormother

#Repost @charliesleiman ・・・ Part 28 - Autism doesn’t discriminate. No matter your race, religion or sex, Autism can impact anyone. Do an online search for ‘Famous people with Autism’ and you will see the names of Hollywood actors, international recording artists, world famous professors pop up. These people went on to great successes in their field because they worked hard to not let their symptoms get in the way of their art. Autism kicked our door in and the tornado that followed turned the place upside down like a scene from a Looney Tunes cartoon.

Josh was the square peg trying to fit into a round hole world. We didn’t want to turn him into a round peg, nor could he stay as a square.

#Repost @erica.harr with @repostapp. ・・・ Autism Awareness Month - day 26! This is another picture from Jessie's 21st birthday in Disney, but what I wanted to share was not the sweet sign for her overalls that Aunt @cvendetta made for her, or the precious moment between father and daughter that was captured - what I wanted to share was the toy Jessie is holding onto in the picture. These pop-beads remain one of Jessie's favorite toys. She enjoys putting them together and pulling them apart, but mostly enjoys using them for self-stimming. Stimming or self-stimulation is common in people with autism and is the repetition of physical movement, sound or moving objects (like shaking these pop beads). Jessie's self-stims include some rocking, some hand flapping, and can sometimes include self-injurious behaviors like head-banging. She can self-stim if she's feeling anxious, excited or impatient. I have a very clear memory of being in a WENDY'S when I was young, sitting with Jessie and waiting for my mom or dad to come back with our food and Jessie was stimming- when a group of teenagers began imitating her and making noises like her... I'm not sure they were prepared for the lesson (lecture) on Jessie's autism and stimming they got from little 8 year old Erica, but it's one of my first real memories of being an advocate for my sister. #autismawareness #autismawarenessmonth2016 #auntjessieisourhero #selfstim #selfstimulation #lifewithautism #autismadvocate #popbeads

#Repost @charliesleiman ・・・ Part 27 - The Joshua we have today (Version 2.0) is a remarkable upgrade from the previous Version 1.0 model. You could call it a completely new operating system. Version 2.0 introduces major improvements in vocabulary and social skills, with the bugs that caused meltdowns and cravings for isolation in Version 1.0 having been ironed out. Version 2.0 introduces increased concentration and new features like fighting back and speaking out. There are known bugs with the new version like twerking (thanks Miley), breakdancing and in its own words ‘a fractured motivation towards school’, however, it is expected that these will be addressed as part of life and day to day learnings to make the upcoming v3.0 even more better than today. Some of the biggest features that Version 2.0 introduces are Yoga and Soccer. Version 2.0 retains the fixations of Version 1.0 but now focuses on movies. A great feature where you can give the system a movie title and you will be greeted with the Year it was released, Who starred in it, the Genre and if you’re lucky, the Era. I tried this with some favourite movies of mine growing up in the 80’s and 90’s and unfortunately most of mine were in the ‘Old school’ or ‘Olden Days’ era. #autism #autismawareness #worldautismawarenessday #april2 #autismawarenessmonth #asd #doingitforjoshua #autismspectrum #autismspectrumdisorder #specialneeds #kidswithautism #adultswithautism #livingwithautism #autismdad #blue #goblueforautism #denial #support #help #story #mystory #blog #lifewithautism #journal #book #tobepublished #dad #father #dadofautism

#Repost @erica.harr with @repostapp. ・・・ Autism Awareness Month - day 25! It has been enlightening, challenging and inspiring growing up with Jessie - but it's also been silly and fun. I can remember when I was young, sitting with Jessie, and in hushed tones saying to her "come on... I know you can talk - I promise, I won't tell anyone." Part of that was hope, but much of that was feeling so close to Jess, feeling such a strong connection, sensing in some moments that she really was just about to open her mouth and tell me all the things she's been thinking for years... I was convinced in some moments she was fooling the world - because there were times when I would look at her and see so much - so much wisdom, truth and insight... But she just looked back at me, each time (and I'm sure in her head thought "this crazy fool" and I hope that was followed by "thanks for not giving up") #autismawarenessmonth2016 #auntjessieisourhero #autismacceptance #sisters #siblinglove #communication #lifewithautism

With bad, there is good. With the struggles, there comes joy. With sadness and anger, there is happiness. When there is despair, there is hope. With faith, there is God. These past few weeks I have been tested. There are so many sides of autism you may not know about. Some days you feel defeated and then there this is that one moment when you see when all of the struggles and pain is so worth it. You see your child the way they are meant to be. That is acceptance. 💗 #imanabelsmom #morelikeAnabel #autismawareness #autismacceptance

#Repost @charliesleiman ・・・ Part 26 - I love seeing all the 'fixes' and 'cures' out there for Autism. The uneducated praying on the vulnerable. How do you fix something that isn't broken? 'Curing' is society's way of saying 'you don't act the way the majority of us do therefore you are broken and must be fixed'. As long as there are 'cures' then 'Acceptance' is going to always take a back seat. There may be no cure but with the right treatment at the right time, an individual has a very strong chance of ‘masking’ their Autistic characteristics. Although the first Autism diagnosis was in the 1940's, the smart people in white coats retrospectively diagnosed Albert Einstein with having an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Imagine if Einstein’s parents started 'curing' him.

#Repost @charliesleiman ・・・ Part 25 - Do you blame the dealer when he gives you a crappy hand or do you make the best out of your hand? Many of us look for someone or something to blame when confronted with an uncomfortable situation. I found myself looking for answers in a world where there was only speculation. Vaccinations, diets, genetics, direction of the wind at birth etc. Before welcoming Autism I clutched at anything I could blame to make me feel better. Some of us accept the diagnosis early and kick on with a plan. Whilst others take a while to pull their heads out of their ar$es and get on top of helping their kid. Denial is a drug, it feels great for a short time but that son of a b*tch world will be right there waiting for you when you come down. Overcome Denial by strengthening Acceptance. #autism #autismawareness #worldautismawarenessday #april #autismawarenessmonth #asd #autismspectrum #autismspectrumdisorder #specialneeds #kidswithautism #adultswithautism #livingwithautism #autismdad #blue #goblueforautism #denial #support #help #story #mystory #blog #lifewithautism #journal #book #tobepublished #dad #father #dadofautism #fatherofautism @autismspectrumaustralia

Pax loved seeing all of his favorite animals at the #zoo, but even so, he kept getting really confused and said "I don't like that" whenever we saw the animals in cages. He even asked my sister if she would go in and get them out so they could "go running". Oh my sweet boy♡ He has such a gentle and caring heart.

It's Autism Awareness Month. This lovely boy is my son Ian--and he lives life on the Autism Spectrum. He is used to seeing me with my camera--and most of the time he ignores the camera. 😉 And that's just fine! There's a new group @spectrum_inspired that aims to pair up photographers with families with children on the Spectrum! Go check them out! #spectruminspired #lifewithautism #trix400 #filmmama #filmshooter #filmisnotdead #analogfeatures #spectrum_inspired

#Repost @charliesleiman ・・・ Part 24 - I used to ask myself, how come we rarely heard about Autism when I was younger? Personally, I truly believe it has always been there. It is just that the education, research and understanding has developed greatly since then meaning that previously undiagnosed or misdiagnosed kids were labelled as having 'behavioural issues'. These kids and families missed out on the opportunity to work through the Autism with the correct therapies and instead were left to run their own course, resulting in many unfavourable endings. #autism #autismawareness #worldautismawarenessday #april #autismawarenessmonth #asd #autismspectrum #autismspectrumdisorder #specialneeds #kidswithautism #adultswithautism #livingwithautism #autismdad #blue #goblueforautism #denial #support #help #story #mystory #blog #lifewithautism #journal #book #tobepublished #dad #father #dadofautism #fatherofautism @autismspectrumaustralia

#Repost @erica.harr with @repostapp. ・・・ Autism Awareness Month - day 22! It's opening night for MAN OF LAMANCHA! Here's a photo of Jessie - show ready for Halloween. There have been a few very memorable moments where you can tell Jessie feels beautiful. It's so precious. I remember we had other costume plans (ones that I had decided, starring me... phew, talk about a handful), but Jessie wanted to wear this, and I remember how proud she was, how sweet she looked, how taken with herself she was. Hands down the hardest thing for me to deal with is the guilt in the unfairness of how things seem. I wonder, still, to this day, why it couldn't have been a bit more balanced. The awesome gifts, wonderful experiences, unforgettable moments that I have had - couldn't we split those up, divide the joy? There is and will never be a rehearsal, opening night or closing performance where I don't take a moment to thank Jessie for her inspiration, embrace the opportunity and pray that in some way, she feels the excitement, shares the joy and knows that she is bowing with me. #autismawareness #autismawarenessmonth2016 #auntjessieisourhero #halloween #lifewithautism #ballerina #openingnight #manoflamancha #manoflamanchabtop #btop

#Repost @charliesleiman with @repostapp ・・・ Part 23 - Why was the diagnosis so important? The Autism label was so powerful that it opened up a whole new world for us. It changed nothing at home nor did we let it define Josh. However, it enabled us access to Government funding that helped go towards therapies and development tools. These same doors that selfishly conceal services from other kids who need it but don’t have the magic ‘label’ required to open it. Had we not gotten a diagnosis, we will never have discovered these tools and services which have proved so beneficial for Josh. #autism #autismawareness #worldautismawarenessday #april #autismawarenessmonth #asd #autismspectrum #autismspectrumdisorder #specialneeds #kidswithautism #adultswithautism #livingwithautism #autismdad #blue #goblueforautism #denial #support #help #story #mystory #blog #lifewithautism #journal #book #tobepublished #dad #father #dadofautism #fatherofautism @autismspectrumaustralia
