Autism and Friendship

When Ben was young, the most heart-rendering thing about Autism was the "inability to form" friendships. This was reiterated the other night at the ADHD support group (Ben fits the ADHD label more so than autism, because his is so mild...He attends an Asperger's class...). One mother was so sad that her child would never have friends. I tried to tell her that things are not always as cut and dried as the "experts" might have it seem.

Even back in the days when Ben was attending the Early Child Development preschool, he had a friend. The teacher said they used to hold hands going down the hall. (Ben was three at the time!) So, I thought it might be wise to invite Juan, his brother and mother over to the house to swim in our little plastic pool.

Juan was the cutest little kid, but he was like a preschooler on high-speed, moving a hundred miles an hour! That kid had more energy than the energizer bunny! Just being around him hyped me up!

We moved far away, never to see little Juan Diego again.

After we had been in our new apartment about a year, the cutest little guy with his curly hair and round glasses and Portuguese accent asked "Can your kid play?". I knew when I saw him he would be Ben's friend. He reminded me so much of the ornery little poops in my family. He was a little hell cat and at six years old his mom would kick him out of the house to play, and he was welcome here. Because of Sean, Ben went to his first sleepover in second grade. He was a very lovable kid, very friendly, but most of the parents kicked him out after a bit, because he tended to STAY! He and Ben watched "Sponge Bob" and made fart noises, and generally got into mischief. But I knew it was good for Ben. When Sean moved away, Ben was sure he would never have a friend again.

Sean's parents were very good people. His Mom grew up in the Azores,near Portugal; his Dad was Air Force retired...An electrical engineer, making good money. At the time Ben was having so much trouble at school I was ready to sue to have him placed in a private school for kids with learning disabilities (Glenforest). In talking to his Dad, he told how he had flunked 4th and 10th grade in school. Somehow, that gave me HOPE! And I wondered, again, why this ADHD thing and friendship for Ben came up.


Next, a cute, pudgy little black kid with glasses came around. Now, Ben's Dad said, "He's gonna be Ben's friend". Joseph (Joe) was being home schooled. I wonder if it wasn't because a teacher had suggested "Ritalin". ALSO, just so happens, Joe has an older brother who has severe Autism, and at age 13 is just beginning to use words. Strange how these things go. Ben and Joe get along pretty good, although Joe is friends with everybody in the apartment complex, but tends to stay...

Which brings us to today...

In Ben's Asperger's class, there is a little girl called Rachel.

"Rachel says she'll be my girlfriend, mom. But I don't know...She's in 7th grade..." He obviously was worried about the May-December aspect, as he's only in 6th.

"Do you like her?" I ask.

"Yes, she's nice...She calls Caleb a twit!" he says, speaking of his competition in class.

On the last day of school, they traded phone numbers and promised to get together.

Ben has been cleaning up around the house, specifically his room, getting ready to call Rachel when she gets back from a three day outing to Charleston. Instead, she calls this morning and asks Ben to go swimming. They eat pizza, and later go to see Grace Stables, where Rachel has her own horse. It also so happens that they do therapeutic horseback riding there. Rachels mom says Rachel has blossomed and rides competitively now.

Anyhow, Rachel loves animals as much as Ben loves Hot Rods and Choppers, his current obsessions.

When Rachel's mom brings her and Ben back to our house, Rachel notices the bird, Georgie, right away.

"Can we bring Georgie to our house?" she asks. She sees the fish, Skippy.
"Can we bring Skippy to our house?" she asks, while everyone is talking one hundred miles an hour.

She goes after the bird, and immediately gets Georgie to sit on her hand, something we are seldom able to do. I have never seen the bird so acceptable of human interference. Georgie usually does her "I vant to be left alone!" deal with us.

"I like animals...I talk about them all the time...that's why I don't have many friends..." Rachel says, and I am thinking of Ben and his cameras and cars and 60's music and motorcycles, that none of his friends seem to care too much about.

"Do you get bored when Ben talks about his stuff?" I ask.

"No, I understand..."

And the two are making big plans to get together the next day with or without the parent's permission...talking right over us and making plans.

Rachel's mom and I decide maybe we ought to give it a rest of a few days.

But I imagine they'll be getting together.

It's not a point of difficulty in making friends...it seems it's more finding the right kinds of friends.

Please never give up hope.

Family Values...revisited

Thanks to Bluejay Young's comment from ballastexistenz's post



Bluejay Young Says:
That child lived and died within a few miles of the town where we were born, the place we mean when we say “home”. I did a little digging and found this.

http://www.pjstar.com/stories/052406/PHI_B9TC9LDB.033.shtml





Well, read Bluejay's link. Katie McCallon's Grandfather gives a heartwarming story. Katie will be profoundly missed.

Somehow...his link served as my muse, and I am thankful to him.

OHANA: from Lilo and Stitch (2002)



Lilo: [Nani is taking Stitch outside] He was an orphan and we adopted him! What about o'hana?
Nani: He hasn't been here that long!
Lilo: Neither have I. Dad said o'hana means family.
[Nani stops]
Lilo: O'hana means family. Family means...
Lilo, Nani: ...nobody gets left behind.
Lilo: Or...?
Nani: ...or forgotten. I know, I know. I hate it when you use o'hana against me.

(Emphasis mine)

***
It was just a kids show...so why did I cry when I heard this part when I took Ben to the Disney movie a few years back? And I asked him, today, what was that word that meant family, from "Lilo and Stitch", and he says "Ohana".

"How do you spell that?" I ask, so proud of his remarkable memory!

"O-h-a-n-a." he says, matter of factly.

"How do you know THAT?" I enquire, amazed.

"It's on the back of the kleenex box..." he says, undeterred from his program.

And sure enough, there it is.





OHANA: NOBODY GETS LEFT BEHIND, OR FORGOTTEN...

That's the family values I'd like to see more of. Maybe that's too much to ask these days...

In Memory of K.M.

Ben at age 4.
I have purposely left the post somewhat ambiguously in memory of K.M. Katie is gone now; nothing in this world can ever bring her back. I tend to believe the spirit is larger than life, and that her spirit probably still lives. Her death, at least, will have meaning, as it has not gone unrecognized as the deaths of many "handicapped" do...

My parents were such wonderful people, kind and caring. Often, when we did something bad, they would say..."You've punished yourself enough already" and laugh. In doing so, they gave us tremendous consciences! My Dad was a bartender, and I can think of many a preacher who could learn from him. Maybe Katie's mom didn't have parents who developed her conscience. Too bad for her mom. Maybe she felt like she would be seen as a martyr. Too bad for her.

Somehow, I don't think we need to belittle or punish Katie's mother. Funny, but I can't imagine that she won't become the "hollow shell" she purported her child to be. To be so emotionally fragile to kill one's own child, we're either talking unimaginable selfishness, or a suicide watch forever. If she's that selfish, Karma will be a bitch. If she's that fragile, suicide would be a relief. It has nothing to do with Katie being autistic. A murderer is murderer.

This post is also for the other mother's who think their children would be better off dead. Before you take their lives into your hands,let's settle things. Let's make sure that you love your child first. If you love them unconditionally, as we are all called to do, and still feel that they would be better of dead, if your conscience frees you, then I'm not going to judge. I'm a good Catholic girl, taught by nuns, and I remember Sr. Casimir telling us that if our consciences don't judge us, then God will not. I thought she was full of it at the time.

This is from the Bible, because that is the religion that I am familiar with, but it could be from any other religion or belief, because in essence they all say the same thing:


LOVE is patient,
LOVE is kind.
It does not envy.
it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It is not rude,
it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
LOVE does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects,
always trusts,
always hopes,
always perseveres.

(1 Corinthians 13:4-7 )

Do you love your child?


I do feel for you, Katie's Mom (K.M.). You are the last person on this earth I would want to trade places with right now. There was one moment in my life when I thought Ben and I would be better off dead. I thank God I didn't react to that "feeling" which was short-lived. For some reason, you were able to justify snuffing out your own childs life and living. That takes a kind of guts I hope I never have...

And the winner is....


Ben desinged a car for his "TEAMS" class at school, and it went so fast, it bent the axle twice.


He raced against three other cars.


In this picture, you can see it racing past him, leaving a trail of smoke...

The teams class is his favorite. In it, he has built motors, played with robotics, and other fun stuff. He designed this car, and it beat out the other three after an unfortunate accident (play imitates life...) with one of the other front runners.

He couldn't have been more proud of himself, and Mom was really happy for him!

The Choice:






God bless the artist, Theo, who created the above landscape with a computer program. I was looking for web images while googling "the choice", and I think this picture could not more perfectly illustrate my point! Click on the link above to find his website. Thanks, sir!

Ballastexistenz had seen a movie put out by autism speaks that she found somewhat condescending. I had just recieved a link to the same production by one of the mothers in a parents group I have attended for four years.

Now, I am not belittling those mothers, although it may sound like it. I am just looking back to my own past, and how I saw autism once, versus how I see it now. It has been a gradual turning...but it is so much freer now that I have made "the choice ".

I don't know how to tell them that the great ball and chain they have around their own necks is somewhat of their own making. Remember how, in the good book, Jesus says his burden is light? I wonder if he meant only in the cases where the mothers didn't have autistic children...?

From the film, one would think there was NO JOY IN AUTISMLAND...

Okay, so my son is mild...maybe that has something to do with it?

NADA! Ben's great-godmother began a school for her daughter Judy, who is my age, nearing 50, and I don't think she has ever spoken a word. I was good friends with Judy's sister Mary Ann, and I never heard Judy do anything but yell in a high-pitched, excited voice while flapping furiously when I would come in the door. I think she liked me! But their mother was one of the happiest people I have ever known, and started a new way of seeing autistic kids, who, because of her, stayed home a few more years rather than being sent to institutions in their youth to "help the family". Judy was home until she was 18, unheard of in those days. Mrs. Hunt changed the world for Judy, not Judy for the world.

So, here's the deal.

You have a child who is autistic? You have 2 choices. You can change your child for the world, or you can change the world for your child.

Guess which is easier to do???????

Looking Back...

Dr. Kristina Chew has a sweet post about her son Charlie. He is working so hard along with teachers and Mom and Dad to open up the communication and relationship channels.

After a hard day, he settled down into his routine listening to his iPOD and watching a tape.

"Mommy wie down." he says to his mom, and she doesn't take those words for granted.

I know exactly how she feels, to have her son WANT her in his busy world.

Since I quit being the Queen of Mean, choosing to change the world, rather than try to change the wiring of my son...Ben has become so close to me.

When he was little, we didn't have much of a relationship, anything like it is now, anyhow.

I tried to explain it on the way to school.

"It's like you heard 'wah-wah-wah-wah-?'" I said, where the parent sounds like the muted horn sound of adults on Charlie Brown specials.

"Instead of hearing 'what it your name, Ben', you heard 'wah-wah-wah-wah, Ben'."

"Uh----forty seven!" he says, making a joke.

But you know, that's the way it was. He was punished for "mis-behavior" because I assumed he knew what was going on. Looking back, it's so obvious he needed help, not punishment. If there was one thing I could get through to younger parents, it would be this. You see, I had wonderful, loving, understanding and forgiving parents. And I could never understand why I couldn't get through to Ben. If I could have wrapped my head around the fact that some people really ARE wired different, it would have saved us both a lot of heartache.

That's why it is such a blessing that the whole "Neurodiversity" thing is catching on. Teachers are slowly changing their expectations, and with that, their manner of teaching.

There is a school here in Columbia, South Carolina started by a mother who was a high-ranking Special Educator in the public school system. Here is a critique of the school given by a student:


(March 2005)
"Glenforest SChool is an amazing school. It's a school where everyone knows your name and you don't fell left out. I am a Junior at Glenforest and love it. This is my second year and my grades are better than they were in public school. The motto ' If a child can't learn the way he is taught we must teach him the way he can learn' and they go by that at Glenforest. I love it and any student who is stuggleing in public school or parents who want a new place for them Glenforest is the place to be!I will be at Glenforest School til i leave in 12th grade. Another awsome thing about the school is how small it is 6 to 10 students in a classroom WOW! amazing compared to public school."
- Robbie



Every school for differently abled kids in this area has been started by parents who were involved in public education, and became sorely disappointed when their "differently abled" child was treated poorly. Hell hath no fury like mother who knows there is a better way, I guess.

If we could have afforded it , we would have sent Ben to Glenforest in first grade. When I talked to Dr. Glenda Sternberg, the founder, she said they used no labels there, but spouted off a string of labels the kids had from the public school before coming there. They were the same ones you can see above, at the top of the blog, under Hard Won Wisdom. Luckily, Ben is in a program for "Aspergers", one of TWO in the whole STATE at the middle school level. It's kind of like "Glenforest-lite", and they ARE trying to help rather than punish.


I can still hear Autism Diva , whose line on Autism podcast I'll paraphrase:
"Your child is autistic? How COOL!"

Ballexistenz
does not want to be put on a pedestal. It's not really like that. In my mind, she "teaches". It's more she is given a place of respect, as a good teacher is. She brings her experience into the conversation, which previously was not a part of the "story of autism", to the degree it makes this wonderful time to be alive! Like being a part of those people who began the Civil Rights Era...and I hope people don't think I am being facitious. Among the blacks who were treated kindly, I just can't imagine that there was a degree of paternalism,ie, "we know what's best for you" and "we'll take care of you".

A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE, EH?

Lack of social skills.......

I have been on the web since 1999, scared to death to start my first entry into a forum. Rightfully so, as for some reason, I always ended up in a fight with someone. I guess my thoughts were not worth validating. Or maybe I was missing out on some social protocol. Or maybe I just was a nasty person. So many possibilities.
But I always felt like I had to be "accepted" before I could be believed or even considered. I guess I just jumped right in, when I should have kissed up.

I have always been a poor kiss up. (Kiss up: give another person who is believed to be higher on the social ladder a GOOD FEELING about you. Say how wonderful they are, how happy you are to be under them...)

But things were different with this blog.

I started the blog first. I think it was before I saw 'gettingthetruthout'.
Anyhow, I had ownership of my thoughts, and I really wrote it for my self.

Then, I got curious about other blog posts. I saw the autism-hub and actually had written an email to be invited in. But something stopped me. Something told me, wait to be asked. I wrote a comment on somebody's blog, I'm thinking it was Aspergerian Pride, but I'm not sure. Maybe it was Autism Diva, whose posts I had come across many times in the past for some reason. Anyhow, Aspergerian Pride invited me to be a link on her blog. Within a short time, Autism-hub also invited me to be a part of his blog.

Weird.

I was socially accepted! FOR THE FIRST TIME!

###########################################################################


I am trying to listen to Autism Podcast. It is near impossible for me to write this post and listen to the podcast. This is the third try. I hope I can catch the one sentence that keeps grabbing my attention.

In it the teacher, Nicole Sparapani (SLP-CCC), talks about how she teaches "social skills" to her kids. She uses pictures, colors, visualization, role-playing, comic strip conversations, drawing. Forgive my attempts to put into writing what she said.

She says, of giving visual representations of skills..."It works, it like a magic thing...overwhelmingly positive...fun", "visual reminders" and "generalization" and "literal".

To her credit is her understanding:

"Another point is, there are so many things we take for granted that we just learned along the way, and when I sat down a while back and started doing these social groups I was amazed at the small things that the kids don't know, and you know it's all these little "catch-ems" (?) and these little things that are happening and hitting and biting and anything that might have happened, it's just because of a lack of understanding around what other people might think or what they are supposed to do..." She notes that "visual learners" don't learn the same way others do. She says something like, if you can find the key to understanding their language, you can end most, but not all, negative behaviors. The host, Michael, makes a comparison to relationships when divorce happens, where people don't quite communicate.

That's just a teaser,...here's the "piece de resistance"...

"It's like going to another country, and not understanding their culture at all, and trying to make a living...If you don't have an understanding of the way you are supposed to interact with these people, or even the language they speak, I mean, what does that leave you with? I mean, they're just very frustrated little minds...I'd probably want to hide in the corner if I didn't know how to communicate with everybody..."

I remember when I tried to tell Ben's teachers that language was a second language to him. He was constantly trying to visualize what they were saying, and that takes time. They say if a person learns a second language after a certain time in their lives, they NEVER learn to "think" in that language, that they spend the rest of their lives re-interpreting what was said into their native tongue. With all of this going on, who has time to work out the subleties and nuances???

To Ms. Warner...

Thanks so much for believing in me. It means so much when someone sees us as we might be, even as they see us as we are!

And it's only the giving that makes you...

What you are... (Wond'ring Aloud by Jethro Tull)

My son Benjamin can talk to me, tell me his wants and needs. Some days I even get a low-down on what happened at school.

When he was 5, I wasn't sure he would ever carry on a conversation with me. I wasn't sure if he would "digress", and lose all language.

When I look back upon our lives, I relive with pleasure those times I got outside my fears and saw the boy.

When we wrap ourselves up in a flag of fear, valiantly trying to see ourselves as our childrens saviors... well, we can't do it now...maybe never... as THERE IS NO CURE FOR AUTISM. Not now, probably not ever. You can do everything your little heart or pocketbook can do, and your child will still be autistic.

My child is.

"Perfect love drives out all fear."

Do we live bound up in fear for our chidren's future, or do we allow them the power of a sound mind, the mind God gave them?

I don't know...probably ain't making a lick of sense to anybody out there.

Good luck to you who are on the journey.

Hope you wise up sooner than I did. Your baby's gonna be gone, and you'll never have learned how to love him for what he is.

And that's much sadder than having an autistic child, anyday!

Acceptance Therapy

Go read this.

Here's a teaser...

A wide range of positive changes or transformational outcomes have been reported by parents of children with disabilities, including: the development of personal qualities such as patience, love, compassion and tolerance (Summers et al 1989; Behr & Murphy 1993; Scorgie & Sobsey 2000; Kausar et al. 2003); improved relationships with family members and others (Stainton & Besser 1998; Scorgie & Sobsey 2000; Kausar et al 2003); stronger spiritual or religious beliefs (Yatchmenoffet al. 1998; Scorgie & Sobsey 2000; Poston & Turnbull 2004); an ability to focus on the present (Featherstone 1980); and a greater appreciation of the small and simple things in life (Abbott & Meredith 1986; Kausaret al. 2003). Studies therefore indicate that, with time and experience, parents of children with disabilities may come to regain a sense of control over their circumstances and a sense of meaning in life by seeing the positive contributions of their children with respect to personal growth and learning whatis important.

Brave New World...



(Picture is of Ben, who has always been free...)


Egad, I feel so much better lately! (Ahhhhhh....raised arms and stretches...yawns...)


A ton of worries, right off my chest.

I no longer have to be my son's "savior".

He's just fine the way he is.

No amount of money or therapy or anything else is going to make him more PERFECT than he already is.

Acceptance....It's a beautiful thing!

Thanks to gettingthetruthout.org! I lost my chains of bondage...I am free at last, free at last, thank GOD ALMIGHTY, I'm free at last.

I'm floatin' down the RIVER OF FREEDOM!

I have seen the TRUTH, and the TRUTH has SET ME FREE!!!!!

FREE FREE FREE FREE
FREE FREE FREE FREE
FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE...

My heart, my head, my wallet......FREE!!

I could lose my life today and die HAPPY!

Unconditional love...

It's 11:11, and frankly

I think the muses are OCD.

Okay, that's over...

In my next life, when I get to do it all over again knowing what I know now...when a teacher implies that my son is lazy, instead of giving Ben ritalin at school and working with him for up to 4 hours a nite to be sure she can put an "A" grade in the book, I'm going to say:

"Damn right! He takes after me...want to make something of it?"

Of course, in the next life, maybe the teacher will be enlightened so I won't have to.

Ben tells me I'm weird. I don't know why he thinks that.

National Media Contacts...If anyone is interested...

I don't know why I'm putting this out there. What if I got in a car wreck and died tonite and somebody needed this and here it would be sitting in a file on my computer and not on the web like it should be. I have no idea when it was created or updated, and hope I am doing nothing illegal.

To be, or not to be (for Peas)

To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them?

(Of course, Willie is quoted for MY purposes!)
