Throwing Things To Communicate

Throwing Things To Communicate

One of my son’s preferred activities is to throw toys over the landing onto the stairs leading downstairs. Then picking them up and taking them into the basement to play. Well long story short our basement flooded right before Christmas and the repairs are underway (lots of starts and stops w holidays). It may be another week or two to go. All said our living space is down to half what it usually is, and the basement has been his palace. He plays and has classes down there all the… read more

Medicaid Waiver

Medicaid Waiver

Would my high functioning autistic child be eligible for this service? Currently I believe he may have other conditions besides autism. There’s some kind of hyperactivity, ODD, he has begun spitting, and hitting his lil sister as well as wetting himself day and night. He is only diagnosed with autism and his Doctor has said he has ADHD symptoms. He is not on any medication. And at the moment I do not have medical insurance.

Intermittent Leave-FLMA

Intermittent Leave-FLMA

My boss suggested I apply for intermittent leave, so that I don’t get penalized for the times I come in late or have to call out due to caring for my autistic child. The thing is I have to be specific regarding when and how long I’ll need. But my situation isn’t a preplanned thing like therapy appointments, it’s simply when my husband and I have conflicts in our schedule when sharing our care giving responsibilities. Has anyone had experience with this?

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

@A MyAutismTeam Member ok I think I understand. So I put period use and the job should understand, because I thought intermittent use was the same… read more

Moving To Texas

Moving To Texas

My family is thinking about relocating to Texas. I’m curious how public school special needs education is? We’ve been looking around San Antonio, possibly Austin.

My daughter is 11, moderate functioning and semi verbal. She’s in a special needs class right now with 12 kids, 3 teachers.

Walking Harness

Walking Harness

Does anyone know where I can purchase a harness for my son. I need one when I go on walks with him. He is getting very strong now. Almost a teenager and he elopes. So, for safety reasons I would like to use one when we go on walks. I don't think a child one would fit him so probably need a small adult size.
