SEND & SpectrumSunday 76

School's are back and autumn is on it's way!  However it is going, I'd love you to come share your SEND & autism posts with me here on our SEND and Spectrum Sunday linky - the place you can share and find blog posts about autism, mental health, education and anything related to autism and special educational needs and disabilities parenting. 

Danielle from Someone's Mum and Victoria from Starlight and Stories try and help me out with sharing posts in this linky, that's currently running once a month. This means linked up posts are shared with our 30,000 twitter followers if you remember to tweet them to us - see below for details. We love everyone in our community and appreciate your efforts to join in!

My favourite post from last month was from About ASD and was a very informative post about TEACCH at home.  I've heard of this so many times and found the breakdown on the post super helpful.  So thank you About ASD.  This month I'm linking up about what Roald Dahl revealed to my autistic son, and about how the ADHD brain works and the difficulties he has in using what he knows in my post about it being 14 weeks till Christmas.

Each month I 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 contact me.   If you are new and unsure about linkies - just read my guide here.

How the #spectrumsunday linky operates
  • Our linky runs from 8am every other Sunday for two weeks or a month during busy times - check the count down at the bottom of the linky for when it's closing
  • 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 of my host posts to comment on :-)
  • Then comment on the post before yours, then a few more if you feel you can.  We are all busy so just do what you can.  If you have any difficulty commenting, please let me or the linker know in case they have a problem with their blog they don't know about.  
  • Feel free to share any posts you'd like to with your followers.  We all love a share but no pressure!
  • 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, (Victoria) @2ndtimemama and (Danielle) @mumsomeone 
  • If you add a Facebook microblog add the #spectrumsunday to your post and tag me - Rainbows are too beautiful Facebook
  • For all blog posts, please be kind and add our linky badge to the bottom of your post/s or add a hyperlink back to this page so people can find way back to read other posts (just copy and paste the code below into your HTML if you are adding the badge - see this guide if you are unsure)

  1. #spectrumsunday
    This is my daughter, please just watch. I'm doing this so or children are heard and not dismissed. She should have been tested years ago. Schools talk about "she has behaviors". No she has triggers. They ignored her IEP and they ignored her crying on the ground. My heart is broken.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing - I'll add this to my sharing.

  2. I'm so glad you liked the post on TEACCH, I think it has been one of the most helpful things we do with my son.


I read all your comments and appreciate you sharing your thoughts with me and our readers. I welcome any feedback on my posts and you can always contact me directly. Thank you.
