Although children develop their speech and language skills at their own pace, there is usually a natural progression or timetable for mastering the skills of language. It is always useful to have a guideline such as this, to make sure they are on track.

This week is the final week of #AutismAwarenessMonth so who better to have on the #MoreThanAMutha blog than Anna Kennedy OBE 🙌🏻. ⠀
⚡️⚡️⚡️⠀
Anna is a mum to two autistic young men, and over the years she has also set up 2 schools , a college, a residential home, led a charity and is recognised as a leading Autism Ambassdor raising awareness and acceptance. And she's also received an OBE from the Queen and danced on the Peoples Strictly for Comic Relief and got four 10’s from the BBC Strictly judges after dancing the Charlston with Robin Windsor! I mean is this woman a Supermum or what!⠀
⚡️⚡️⚡️⠀
Read her interview to find out more about her life as a mum and more (Link ⬆️)⠀
⚡️⚡️⚡️⠀
And please do tag anyone who you think may have an interest in Anna's interview especially considering her vast wealth of knowledge when it comes to autism.⠀

Gregory is happy with his new little bag on the neck, where he keeps a pen, a notebook, some pecs, cash , a banking card 🙋🏻‍♂️
❗️❗️❗️Грегори очень нравится его новый бумажник на шее, где помешаются : маленький блокнот,ручка, некоторые подготовленные карточки, его кредитка и мелкие деньги. Даже на петле сбоку можно пристроить жидкость для рук. Это удобнее, чем снимать рюкзак и доставать все оттуда. Или можно вообще без рюкзака.

Morning! Week 36 in my series Our PDA Story is now live on my blog. I’m so grateful to all these people who are sharing their stories about what it’s like to live with Pathological Demand Avoidance in the family. All over the world, all classes, all races, this is a condition that can affect many. It’s not children being naughty. I know this isn’t something which everybody wants to read about, so I really appreciate those who do. I wish more people knew about PDA; it helps the child and the family when the right strategies are used. And here ends this morning’s short sermon 🙂 #PDA #PathologicalDemandAvoidance 🌈

Day 24: See me, see you. For a lot of people on the spectrum, eye contact can be painful, or in the case of Noah he used to avoid it. Now this kid LOVES it. We had @hannofanno92 and her husband over for dinner and he goes up and gives BIG looks in their eyes. He loves to study faces now. It has been 2 years of work to help him be able to use eye contact to his advantage instead of pain! With his eye contact, you’ll note he is looking into his baby dolls eyes. Touching its face and eyes. We got the blue other one for him as a “trainer” for when little sis comes in a few weeks. We’ve caught him a few times hugging and loving on his babies. 🤗 #30daysofautism #autismspectrum #differentnotless #spd #asd #neurodiverse #autism #autismacceptance

Guess who? It’s Pete the Cat... Aiden’s book collection is growing (Pete the Cat toys and stuffed characters not pictured) 😂...

A few days late… It has been a little crazy in the Poelman household lately.

It’s obvious that connecting with nature and the outdoors can conjure up something in each of us that we can’t get from anything else. Zane is no exception to this! He has a special (maybe deeper than most) connection to Mother Earth 🌏 and considering this week we celebrated Earth Day, here it goes…

Z definitely enjoys his time indoors playing on his iPad, building LEGO’s, battling it out on the WII, building puzzles & playing Skip-Bo or Uno, but Z most definitely enjoys his time outdoors. Whether that be riding his bike, snow or water skiing, hiking, or swimming in the ocean, or just hanging out in the back yard, OUTSIDE is his favorite place to be. He seems to be at peace when he’s outside. Free to be who he is. Zane loves the Ocean. It’s a magical place for him. The chaotic simplicity of the asymmetrical pressures of a riptide, or the inconsistent pattern of a constant incoming surge of waves and the riptide, or the pungent smell of salt & washed-up seaweed on the beach, or the finite sensation of the abrasive feelings of every grain of sand between his toes. Not really sure what it is, but the frequency of the natural world seems to strike a familiar and comforting chord with the symphony inside this amazing young man.



Sorry to be mia the last couple of days but I promise to make up for it with a few extra posts over the course of the next few days.
