I cannot believe that it has been two years since I have posted on this blog. I used to love blogging, using it as a means to keep track of the progress of things in our life, especially Katie's autism. I decided that after a long hiatus, it was time to get back into the swing of things. I have always enjoyed writing down my thoughts. So even if this is just for me...here I go.
Katie is now 10 and will be 11 in October. She is finishing her 4th year at her current school and will actually being transferring with all of her classmates to a new school program next year where she will have more contact with general education students. Research has found that when autistic students are able to spend more time with their neuro typical peers, the results are very successful.
I just finished a long term substitute teaching assignment at the local middle school. As much as I loved working with the kids, I was reminded in many ways why I have chosen not to teach full time. I am looking forward to a little more time at home...getting caught up on reading, and maybe even finding the time to get back to cooking meals every day...yes, we ate way too much pizza while I was working!!!
Well, enough for today. I will try to make this a habit again.....
