S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom  (Strong Mothers Altering Autism’s Reality Together)This Month :         “It’s Never Too Late To Roller Skate”

Hello S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom’s !
This month I finally felt that my 17yr old son with autism was ready to venture in to a Roller Skating Rink. When he was younger there were many sensory issues with Dustin. He was Extremely sensitive to Loud sounds, lights, and especially a crowd of people. I still made attempts to venture in to other places I felt he could handle; however, as he has grown older his sensory issues have minimized quite a bit. I’m certain that he has improved primarily to his therapies, repetition, determination, and of course with love. So on that note; I’ve decided that it was time to venture in to a Roller Skating Rink for the FIRST Time 🙂 Not sure what to expect considering this is a NEW place to Dustin. So I hope you enjoy this month’s video & Remember this is not just a first for you, but a first for Dustin & S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom as well. Wish Me Luck!

Until Next Month…….BIG HUGS

S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom (FEB) 2014′ Online Mommy Time-Out Video: “An Unexpected Circus Surprise!”

S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom (Strong Mothers Altering Autism’s Realty Together)

This Month:
“A Valentine’s Day That Brings “Good” Cries. What an Unexpected Circus Surprise!”

Welcome Back S.M.A.A.R.T.Moms!
This month once again I want to share with you a very special moment with all of you.
I hope to inspire and encourage you to at least TRY and take your loved one with autism out in to “Public” places. As a mom myself who has a son who is almost 18 yrs. old with autism , I know first hand how difficult this can be. I know that it is much easier to “Isolate” ourselves from going in to public places because of the misguided people, the stares, and especially the fear of a melt-down occurring. It doesn’t have to be this way. Moms & Dads I want to help you live your life again. There isn’t an Anchor attached to Autism. There are alternatives. I hope that with the videos I create solely for those families walking in my shoes….I hope it will help you in some way, to lift you up, to give you a positive outlook on autism, or at the very least bring a Smile to your day.
Be Strong , Be Patient, & KNOW you always have a Friend called S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom 🙂
BIG HUGS & Take Care!

S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom’s (SEPT.) 2013′ Online Mommy Time-Out Video: “My V.C.R. is Broken” FIX IT !

(Strong Mothers Altering Autism’s Reality Together)

“Mothers Coming Together To Think Outside The Box Of Autism Behaviors”

In this month’s video I talk about how I  transitionsed  our son with autism from VCR Tapes to DVDs. Something I’m sure is going to be  an issue with most of my S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom families living with autism because of the fading out of the VCRs. I think I  may have found a helpful solution for those of you  who may be going through those Video Tape “Melt-Downs” as we speak. I hope my idea will help you like it has Dustin  and  I.
Until Next Time & Good Luck  Everyone!

I still encourage all of my moms to never give up and get discouraged.

Big Hugs to all of you! Until next time! Take Care:)
