Executive Function Followup — Day 17 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

Today I noticed that someone on LinkedIn liked my post about Executive Function, so I am going to go and see what I can say more about this.  Currently I am just going to put quick notes, and this may end up being a multi-post thing, I don’t know yet, but here is the list […]

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) — Day 16 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

Still having difficulty finding pictures for several of our topics For “yesterday’s post” (which is showing up the same day as this one because I’m still behind, and still working on getting back on track, so no need to schedule) I wrote a bit about language (I think I need to revisit it) but related […]

Language — Day 15 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

no image yet again… Today over at Mastodon.art there was a bit of a discussion about language, specifically around the language Toki Pona.  Someone last night posted a bunch of round tiles they created with some kind of “runes” on it, which lead to the discussion as it was just interesting to me. So, the idea […]

Connecting with Other Autistics — Day 14 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance — 2018 Autism Acceptance Month

I like to put a header image, but I don’t know that I have one that really fits here either…  That’s OK for now… I have this listed in my notes as “CAU” or Canadian Autistics United.  But that is just a “formal” aspect of of connecting with other autistics.  There are a lot of […]

Writing About Science — Day 13 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance — 2018 Autism Acceptance Month

Currently trying to get a little bit closer to be on schedule for the series.  Today one of my friends (well not sure about that term in general, but I’ll use it) was asking about how we can do “science” in psychology, and if it could be considered to be a “legitimate science”. This was […]

Games as Escape — Day 12 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance — 2018 Autism Acceptance Month

picture should go here, but I can’t find anything appropriate with my Flickr Over the past couple of days I have been playing Eternal Lands and have been really enjoying it.  I started because I had gotten into a funk, and decided to go back to the game that I was able to commit to for […]

Chewigem Review — Day 11 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance — 2018 Autism Acceptance Month

We are way behind.  This is an OK thing.  Well sort of.  I’m not being very OK with it. I’m not streaming, I just don’t feel up to it.  So this is just me doing some quick stuff on my own. So earlier today I created a video for Chewigem review, as a Platinum Chewer, […]

Making Clothes — Day 10 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

This really isn’t “making clothes” but the starts of it, but here we have some of today’s “goofing off” (ie. not writing stuff on my “30 Days” stuff, which I’m still quite behind with). This is a dress repair I did today.  And I think that this is really where I have been working with […]

Executive Function — Day 9 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

I’m not really sure where this is going.  Just like all of them. This morning, I was thinking (don’t really remember when) about how important my understanding of executive function is to my day to day life. Yesterday I had planned on working, and because I had planned to work, it was difficult when I […]

Magical Creatures — Day 8 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

I know that I am writing “Day 8” on April 11th.  This I am trying to be OK with.  It feels a little difficult being OK with it.  But I believe that I’m doing better with that (more in the next post I think, or maybe it’s the one after that?)  Right now I want […]
