Woo-hoo! We Made a List!

I’m so excited to post that “All About Boog” has made Action Behavior Centers Top 35 Autism Blogs of 2018 list!
 About U

I am honored that my little blog has been noticed. ”All About Boog” began as a way for me to express my feelings and fear of having a child with an Autism diagnosis. Over the last five years it has evolved into a place of real life and honesty. 

I’m so glad people read my blog because I don’t sugarcoat being a parent of a child with Autism. Sometimes it’s rough, sometimes amazing - and I think reading the truth of it gives others comfort. I want readers to know that their feelings are valid and most importantly - that they are not alone. 

Action Behavior Centers are located in Texas and assist families with children on the Autism Spectrum. They provide one-on-one ABA therapy; which can make improvements in verbal and nonverbal communication, life skills and behavioral challenges. In other words - they’re a one stop shop providing exactly what children with Autism require to reach their full potential and live as independently as possible. 

Thank you again Action Behavior for the recognition, but more importantly - thank you for all that you do for children with Autism.

Please support Sesame Street because little ones who understand Autism grow up to become adults who understand. That’s how we cultivate and grow acceptance.

Independence Day(s)

Most of my blogging is about having a child with special needs, but I think way beyond the current time frame often. Why just worry about today when you can worry about YEARS in the future! 🙄

Finding stories of successful adults living with a disability always warms my heart. You don’t find them very often, likely because these people are busy living adult lives.

I ran across this post about a young man with cerebral palsy moving out of his parents’ home and living independently. It’s a great way to gain insight on how it feels to finally do things with no assistance.

I think the writer, Spencer Williams, is incredibly brave and I appreciate him sharing such a personal time in his life. It really removes some of my “future worry” and replaces it with something much better - hope.

Thanks Spencer!!!

Living Alone is Awesome, Even With My Disability.
