Happy New Year Autism Community!

I hope the holidays were good to all of you and the families you serve. As difficult as the long months of winter can be at times, I have also found this time of year an ideal time to reflect on the progress and many accomplishments we’ve seen; thousands more first responders trained, hundreds of families throughout the state who have benefited from our Navigator program, BCBA licensure and Seclusion/Restraint legislation, which was passed after years of advocacy, and so much more. None of this would be possible without the support of our community, especially those who support our annual Michigan Shines for Autism Gala and Autism Hero Walk. Funds raised during these crucial events have allowed AAoM to touch over 30,000 lives in Michigan to date.

Holiday Tips From An Autism Parent

While sometimes the mixture of autism and the holidays can produce stale fruit bread (instead of spiced eggnog), it doesn’t make the holiday season any less special. Christmas, for our family, is honestly one of the best times for the year, but it doesn’t come easy. It requires planning, a positive attitude and the willingness to be flexible.
