I just came across this photo on the Facebook page Autism Storms and Rainbows (https://www.facebook.com/Autism-Storms-and-Rainbows-152663228214371/timeline/?hc_location=ufi) and thought I would share. This is a great visual!
What were the first red flags that you noticed?
Yay! 2 sold so far. I have to sell 15 more for the shirts to be made. Order while you can. They’re only available for 19 more days.

One of Oliver’s greatest joys in life are having bubbles blown to him. What makes your kiddos happy?
I decided to do a mini-tshirt fundraiser to promote my blog, but I mostly just want one of these shirts. I designed it and am selling Unisex short sleeve, Women’s Short Sleeve, Long Sleeve, and Hoodies. They’re starting at $16.50 and all proceeds will go towards Oliver’s treatments and therapies. I love this design and can’t wait to get mine in the mail! 17 have to be sold in order for the shirts to be made.

I have just launched a page on my website where I will be featuring your child’s story! This will help parents with concerns and the parents of newly diagnosed children. I believe that being aware of the early signs is key! Help me spread the word by sharing your story.

Oliver’s weighted blanket seems to be the only thing that will send him to sleep. I don’t know how naps existed prior to our purchasing of one. I love supporting small businesses (and paying less money is a plus, too), so we got ours from the Etsy shop Weighted Creations. This one to be exact: https://www.etsy.com/listing/182119049/weighted-blanket?ref=shop_home_active_15
Do your children use weighted blankets? How do they like them?
Oliver had a tantrum filled afternoon, so a “check out” was in order. To the playground with us.
I have updated the following pages:
‘Our Story’, ‘What is Autism?’, and ‘Resources’
Feel free to look them over and offer your thoughts and feedback!
I also just started a new page that is titled ‘Other Parents’ Stories’. Visit this page to read more. I’d love to feature your story on this page!
