As a parent of an autistic child, one comment I hear is that my child doesn't look autistic. That leads me to wonder, what does autism look like?

One of the comments that parents of children with autism will sometimes hear is, “he/she doesn’t look autistic.” Personally, this bugs me and I’ll tell you why.

We’re definitely getting into the arrival of Fall (and the early apples at the Farmer’s market). Last week we shared an easy toilet paper stamping apple art project and this week we have another hands-on fun activity. It’s Squeaker’s first time doing anything handprint related with paint, though we’ve done a few handprint projects by […]

Celebrate fall or use this simple toilet paper roll apple stamping art project in a theme about Johnny Appleseed.

The early apples were available at the Farmer’s market, and to me- that’s a sure sign that Fall is just around the corner.
