Bridging the Gap

Posted by on Aug 22, 2011 | 0 comments

I’m sorry I’ve been kid of awol here lately.  Between the demands of summer and my husband’s new job training that’s had him away from the house from dawn to bedtime, things have been a bit hectic.  I’ve also been spending a lot of time over on Facebook, tending to the Autism is A Trip page and community there.

We have a great group of people and pages (875 at the time of this writing), and there’s a lot of love and support happening every day.  In addition to sharing what I write here and articles I find interesting and/or informative, I also have “theme” days to focus on specific topics:  Tasty Tuesday (recipes and websites for yummy, healthy, natural eating), Wednesday Woots (Facebook pages/groups I recommend), and Focus Friday (a moment of Zen, if you will).  I’d like to add two more days, one to highlight therapies/interventions, and one for self-care for parents of special needs children.

I’m going to continue to post everything on Facebook, but from now on I’ll bring it here as well.   I want my friends on this site, Twitter, Facebook and beyond to have one place to find all of the important things.

I’m working on some other changes to the site to come over the next few weeks.  In the meantime, thanks for your patience.  I’m off to write now – Jack has been quite the inspiration this summer.

I just realized I’m not getting notices for comments pending, so a few comments got caught in the shuffle this last week (and they’re awesome!). I’m going to look into where the notifications are going, but in the meantime, I’ll try to be better about checking in.

If you’ve already had a comment approved once, you’re free and clear. If you’re new and waiting, please be patient, and welcome!! I’m so glad you’re here.

Changes and Progress

Posted by on Feb 4, 2011 | 3 comments

Hello again!  I’ve been busy working on some changes and updates to the site.

You’ll see a new page, “All Natural,” where I’ve compiled a bunch of links and resources to help you and your family ditch the chemicals in your food.  I’ve also added a whole bunch of new items to the store, from all natural candies and cake/cookie decorations, music and books to sensory integration tools and yoga books and dvds for both neurotypical and ASD kids.

I’m working on a humor page, with links to autism and aspie humor.  There isn’t a lot out there (yet), but what’s there is pretty wonderful and really funny.

I’m also considering adding a forum, so we can open the discussion wider.  Please let me know if you’d be interested in that, and if there’s anything else you’d like to see here.

Most importantly, I have some new stories coming featuring our hero Jack.  He’s been a very busy boy.

Enjoy!

A Little Light Housekeeping

Posted by on Jan 5, 2011 | 0 comments

I just realized the subscription form to the right wasn’t working.  It’s up and running now, so if you’d like to receive updates via email, go sign up! 

There’s also something amiss with the email system here and I’m not getting emails addressed to Wendy@AutismisATrip.com.  I’m working to get that fixed, so if you’ve sent me an email I haven’t responded to, well, now you know why.  Until further notice, please either leave comments here on the site or contact me through the Facebook page. 

Is there anything else you’d like to see here?  It’s January cleaning time!
