Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism involves the inability to innately understand social communication cues, making it challenging for the person with autistism to communicate with the world outside himself or herself. Autism is a spectrum disorder, meaning that people affected by it are challenged in varying degrees in their ability to communicate and function normally, depending on whether their case is mild or severe. Hence, there are some very high functioning autistic children and adults, as well as those who are highly dependent on others for their daily functioning and their safety and well-being.

As such, it is vital that caregivers do all they can to maintain a positive, healthy mindset, so they do not become depleted and frazzled in the midst of nurturing others. Here you will find helpful articles on Mindfulness Meditation, Home Organization, and the like, to hopefully provide you with a refreshing perspective in the midst of life’s daily struggles.
