Hope you all had a great weekend! Ours was filled with soccer, running and family time. Then I came online and saw that I've been given an award from two different sources – my first one since leaving the Today network! John from Special Needs in Munchkinland and ATorturedSoul from All About Bipolar both honored me with the Educational Commitment Award! Thanks, guys!

About the award:

This award recognizes and gives value to:
1.- Commitment to Quality Education.
2.-Betting on the inclusion of Tics [children with tics] in the classroom.
3.-The effort of parents, professionals and educational centers in incorporating the Tics into the educational process.
4.-The struggle to defend, through the Teaching Values like: Solidarity, Love, Affection, Respect, Effort, Aid, Support, Sharing and Commitment, the future of our children and students.
5.-Recognize and value the effort of the families, professionals and educational centers for integrating effective conditions in the schools and in society for the children and special students, gaining them tons of love and allowing them all the resources at our disposal.

You can distribute this prize freely to those blogs that you consider to be working in these lines.

The Norms of distribution are:
1.-Publish the objectives of the prize and link to Recursos Educativos (Educational Resources).
2.-Publish a list of deserving blogs to pass on the prize.
3.-Communicate to each blog rewarded that they have won the prize.

I am passing on this award to:

Another Piece of the Puzzle

Autism Learning Felt

Autism Sucks

Autism is Not the Boss

On another note, I heard a great blog talk radio program today hosted by the Asperger Women Association and guest starring John Elder Robison, author of Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger's. Being that I had read (or more accurately listened to) the book, I was very excited to hear Mr. Robison speaking about aspies and relationships and other topics. Although Gus isn't quite there yet, I still got some good information that will (I think) help when the time comes. Check it out!


  1. Congrats on the award...well deserved :)

    Thanks for the vote of confidence, Andrea!


  3. Thank you for the award. I normally do not do anything about the awards others give me, but this one is special. I am putting it on my site and picking other blogs to send it on to.

  4. Congrats on your award. I am putting your blog in my blogroll. Thom gave it to me. I am glad he did. My son has autism and I blog about it. It's nice to come across sites like this. Happy Tuesday!

  5. Thank you - that's so encouraging to me!

    I really appreciate the lift. :)
