Mom’s Creative Problem-Solving

I am back in Singapore, temporarily. My sister came to get me at the airport past midnight, and we, the entire family, went downstairs to have some supper when we got home.

Autism: Keeping the World Out

Why does “social inclusion” play such a big part in intervention for Autism? It’s a no-brainer really. People with autism have significant difficulty in developing relationship/friendship with other people; the preferred mode is isolation. We Don’t Hate People We don’t hate people, in fact, many of us love people. We desire to build deep and meaningful relationships with other people.…
