Congrats Massachusetts! Today, #Masschusetts Governor Baker signed the #autism, ID/DD #policetraining bill into law. This is so needed for the community and long overdue. What a great step forward for individuals with autism, their families and those in law enforcement who want to engage/respond appropriately, but have never been provided training to do so. (Thanks to Terri Farrell for originally sharing this amazing news!)

Section 116I. The municipal police training committee shall establish and develop within the recruit basic training curriculum a program for regional and municipal police training schools for the training of #lawenforcement officers in the commonwealth in appropriate interactions with persons on the autism spectrum and those with other intellectual and developmental disabilities. The program shall include training for law enforcement response to individuals on the autism spectrum and those with other intellectual and developmental disabilities who are victims or witnesses to a crime or suspected or convicted of a crime.

Meet Carter: "Hi, my name is Carter. I am 20 years old and live in a small town in New York. I was placed on the autism spectrum at 3 years old although I wasn't aware of my diagnosis until I was 14. There have been many struggles that I've dealt with because of my disability whether it's struggling with keeping eye contact, preference of being in solitude, difficulty understanding others' feelings and language, and intense reactions to sounds like fire alarms. My biggest challenge is my resistance to minor changes in routines; if something is planned and gets changed moments before, I can't control myself properly. One thing that I have found to help me get through my struggles is the sport of running. I have been running since the 8th grade. At first, it was just considered a hobby. I never would've thought I would be doing this as a collegiate sport. I am a member of the @manhattanville_college Cross Country & Track and Field team and I wake up every day still in disbelief that I am out here improving my skills and being surrounded by great teammates and an awesome coach, besides the challenges I face. I might be a bit different from the rest of the crowd, but that is what makes us special and unique; the help we might need and the people there working hard for us is what makes us all so unique. I've been harassed and bullied throughout elementary, middle, and high school. It made me feel like I didn't belong or fit in, but thanks to all of my special ED teachers and my family, I was able to realize that having autism isn't a curse, it's a total blessing. When I was diagnosed on the spectrum, the doctor stated to my mom that I would never speak, not have any friends, and not go past the 1st grade. Well, I am able to speak clearly and create conversations, have people around me that I have considered friends, and I am just about to finish my junior year in college. Let's just say I have come a long way." - Carter

So important to not take behaviors personally. Keep in mind that we must seek to understand the root cause! 🙌

Meet Caleb: "I am so proud of my son Caleb Pierce! He was diagnosed with Autism at 4 yrs of age. At that time he had a very limited vocabulary along with most of the behaviors associated with PDD/autism such as toe walking, stimming, echolalia and some behavior challenges. For his first few years of elementary schooling, Caleb was placed in the small group setting where he also received speech and language therapy. Forming friendships with neurotypical kids was also challenging, especially during the elementary and middle school years. Along this journey, there were many who doubted his ability to succeed in the typical learning setting or as an independent adult. But I always knew he was a brilliant individual full of untapped capabilities. Caleb has exceeded the expectations of many doubters. While in high school he was on the honor roll, often sought challenging classes despite other guidance, participated in several clubs, and was a member of the wrestling and football teams. He is currently in his junior year of college at @univofalabama- where he is majoring in business management and has a true entrepreneurial spirit. He also has developed a few close cherished friendships while away at college. As an autism parent, you have to be your child’s strongest advocate, in-home tutor, biggest cheerleader, and closest friend. The journey has been challenging, but we have remembered to celebrate the small victories and advancements along the way!" -Caleb's parents

In light of George Floyd’s death and the resulting protests worldwide, we stand by those now addressing systemic racism in our country. Inclusion is an important value for us as a company. We serve individuals who are judged, excluded, and sometimes neglected or mistreated by society. We are passionate about the value of our clients’ and our staff as humans. We stand by the black community and their allies who are seeking humane treatment and a shake up of societal norms in this time. We are sorry that you have to ask to be treated with respect, dignity, and humanity. We will treat you with such, and we will listen as you tell us how to do that in the way that is best for you. We will also incorporate more teaching opportunities with the children that we serve, to help them grow up to treat other humans the right way.

Temple Grandin Has Some Great Tips to Help Autistic Kids Cope During the Coronavirus Quarantine

Temple Grandin's biggest recommendation for children with autism during this quarantine: try to form a schedule. We agree! It's hard for all of us to be out of our routines. It's a great opportunity to deliberately make new routines in our homes.

Parents who are working at home during the coronavirus quarantine face many challenges. But the boundaries between work and home life are blurred even more when your child has autism. To commemorate National Autism Awareness Month in April, international autism expert Temple Grandin spoke to Parade....

We're honoring Autism Acceptance Day a little differently this year! We think it's a day to be grateful for the gifts we have in our lives.

Thank you to the children with autism who teach us every single day. We learn so much from you! You brighten our lives and are the highlight of our days.

Thank you for the families who work so hard and have so many practitioners involved in their personal lives. We recognize the many ways you show love to your children.

Thank you to technology! Thanks to emails, phone calls, video chatting, sharing notes/materials electronically, and all things Google, we have been able to remain connected while we're all separated physically!

Thank you to the funders, mostly insurance companies, who quickly responded to the pandemic to allow flexibility in services, particularly telehealth. This was a great time for us all to recognize our priorities, and we're so happy to have worked with funders who put families' needs first.

To our local autism community: we're not forgetting about you while you're at home. Today is your day!

We hope you have the opportunity to take time to give thanks on Autism Acceptance Day!

We know everyone is feeling the impact of COVID19 and everyone is feeling it differently. We want you to know that we are continuing to offer our services during this time. We know that the special needs of the children we serve do not go away in this pandemic. Instead, the families we work with need support more than ever while they're isolated and out of their routine. We continue to offer in-home services, and if those are not an option for families, we are offering telehealth services. We are not forgetting about any of you!

If you have a child with autism or other special needs and you're struggling right now, please reach out to us!
