When your child is disabled

Image

This article was very helpful for me. As you may already know, my son is on the autism spectrum. As his parent I’ve felt like sometimes I was on a roller coaster trying to help my son and cope with how I was feeling in reaction to his quirks and/or behaviors. I’ve prayed many days to Jehovah to help my son and to give me and my family the strength and endurance to care for him. Some days have been great while others have left me feeling drained and defeated. I was told to read this Bible based article by my mother and I was glad she told me about it. I felt renewed after reading this wanted to share this with you. Whether you are a Jehovah’s Witness or not, this Bible based counsel will help you. Feel free to look up the highlighted scriptures or grab your own Bible to look them up. Either way you will feel encouraged by the power of God’s words. There are many other encouraging articles if you are interested at Jw.org

22 Tips for teaching students on the Autism spectrum

Image

I found this today when doing some research for my son who is on the spectrum. There is so much information out there, sometimes it’s overwhelming and discouraging. ¬†As a parent who had no background or education on autism I found it difficult looking online for answers with how to cope, how to teach him and how to help him. I still have difficulty but with prayer and being extremely hands on it is getting better. Although I still have a lot of questions, I will post links to information that I think will help us on our journey and it could possibly be of some help to you.

This link has some pretty useful tips that could help.
