As autistic parents to autistic children,

We are models.

We model both self respect and respect for others

Our autistic kin, and our intersectional kin.

We choose wisely, the people, places and things we engage ourselves and our children in

The round table conversations bet...

I've been thinking..about the poem "Welcome to Holland" by Emily Pearl Kingsley.

(Original is here https://www.pdx.edu/…/www.…/files/Welcome%20to%20Holland.pdf )

The first time I read it, I was in the throes of intuition around my baby being autistic. I knew when sh...

We’re away for the weekend and I’ve observed these interesting patterns of socialisation in neurotypical people that just baffles me.
.
Husband and I were told on checkin that we had access to a VIP section which was quiet, where people worked.
.
We decided, completely...

Strategies (cringe and screw up face) and PDA.

I’ve been chatting with a few fellow PDAers about this one, as I do like to explore whether others join me in my discomfort around certain words or issues, or whether I'm just being a bit of a toss.

'Cause sometimes I am.

Let’s stop pathologising our children.
.
Let’s stop forcing responsibility onto vulnerable children instead of taking responsibility as adults and admitting fault in a system that is and has been consistently failing children since it’s conception.

I mean, I don't want to be a Debbie Downer, but come on.

My dentist was trying to tell me recently that autistic and anxious children not having the capacity to attend school (I try and avoid the usual terming of 'school refusal') is a simple matter of saying to on...

It's common for people who don't understand another culture to learn more about it.
.
Perhaps they'll learn the language, try the eating habits and foods, even become accustomed to rituals and routines.
.
They do this in preparation for spending time in the environment...

It is so important for autistic voices to be heard.

For autistic lived experience to be known.

In the past, I found that I needed space and time away from speaking and presenting for organisations that weren't aligned with my message of positive autistic identity.

This me...

I’ve been gutting a caravan for the past few weeks.
.
It belonged to my in laws and is 60 years old, and as it’s no longer in use after our eldest moved on, I asked their permission to renovate it into a home office space.

So I’ve been chipping away bits at a time.

Tuning in to my children

Allows me to tune into me

I’m reminded of who I was

Who I am

At my most innocent and naive

I see glimpses in my babies

Of their Mama

I experience and bask

In the very characteristics

That were not received so well

In me

Our children

Guide us

Show us

The beau...
