Spectrum and SEND Sunday #36

Hello, and welcome to Spectrum and SEND Sunday #36,  the place to share your autism, special educational needs and disabilities posts. If you are new to linkies, you can look at my guide on what they are and what to do to join the #SpectrumSunday linky in a bit more detail.

This week I'm linking up two posts for you to choose from. I celebrated my first blogginversary in the last two weeks, so I'm sharing my first ever post. It was moments like this in the playground with David that sort of started me blogging.  I just couldn't keep them to myself.  I'm also linking up 4 million minutes later, we bid farewell to dummies. Having autism in the home meant we used soothers far beyond their recommended years but I don't see that as a failure.

Our favourite post from the last linky was by Tyger, Bear and Me called Not Waving but Unravelling. Danielle said it's a good reminder that you never know what is going on or hidden by a smile, and I agree! I'll be sharing this on my Facebook page and Danielle will too.  All your posts have also been added to our Pinterest board too.

The linky runs once a fortnight, alternating hosting between myself and Danielle at Someone's Mum. We keep the linky open for the two weeks so everyone can link up.  Thank you to all those who linked up and shared posts last week.
