SEND and SpectrumSunday #64 - Happy Hogmanay

Spectrum Sunday badge

Happy New Year's Eve!  The festive season has been pretty overwhelming though mostly in a good way and still left me exhausted.  Our kids are back to school this week (though on different days) but I'm completely unprepared regards uniforms etc.  However, I've managed to pull myself together for our SEND and Spectrum Sunday linky.

My favourite post from the last linky was via Life and ASC.  It's been a busy social time and I think her tips on how to deal with this could be useful for many.

Thanks to the super Victoria from the Starlight and Stories blog for hosting over the run up to Christmas.  This period and into the New Year can be quiet on the blogging front but we want to always give you a chance to share your posts with us and our social followers.

Linked up posts are shared with our nearly 30,000 twitter followers as Danielle from Someone's Mum, Victoria and I all tweet or retweet your posts. We love everyone in our community and appreciate your efforts to join in!  For us all at the end of the year - thank you!

This linky I'm including our summary post about our highs and lows from 2017 and about the day I hid I had kids with disabilities.

Our linky is fortnightly and is for sharing your autism, SEND, additional needs and mental health posts or anything you think might be useful for our community.  Each week the host will comment on, pin and share your linked up posts.  We just ask you share a bit of love with other posts in return through commenting or sharing.  If you have any questions about a linky you can see my guide or contact me.

How the #spectrumsunday linky operates
  • Our linky runs from 8am Sunday for two weeks
  • You can add up to two posts or micro-blog posts each - old or new content is all fine by us.  If adding a micro-blog from facebook, make sure you add the link of the post by clicking on the time stamp to copy the link.
  • It would be great if you could choose one host post and one co-host post to comment on each week
  • Then comment on the post before yours and more if you fancy.  If you have any difficulty commenting, please let me or the linker know.  Feel free to share any you'd like to with your followers.
  • This subject can be incredibly emotive so kind and supportive messages only please.
  • It would be great if you tweet your linked posts with #spectrumsunday - we will retweet for you! Just tag us in the tweets @rainbowsaretoo, @2ndtimemama and @mumsomeone 
  • If you add a Facebook microblog add the #spectrumsunday to your post and tag the host - this week that's me - Rainbows are too beautiful Facebook
  • For all other posts, please be kind and add our linky badge to the bottom of your post/s so people can find their way back to read other posts (just copy and paste the code below into your HTML - see this guide if you are unsure).

What is Autism?
It's so much I couldn't possibly try and explain. For us it's wonderful and heart-breaking. Joyous and truthful. But as far as diagnosis is concerned, why not have a look at the National Autistic Society for their definition of Autism.
