Jack Photos– Here are some pictures of my grandson, Jack, that I took last weekend when he stayed overnight. He is growing up quick!
Joe introduced Jack to the joys of frosted shredded wheat cereal. That is what he is munching on above. Jack also loves to give random smiles, can you tell?
Joseph– Youngest son, Joseph, came home for a quick visit. He loves where he is living now- in Concord, CA. Joseph is a handsome young man who happens to have autism (high functioning). I located for Joseph a wonderful supportive program for adults with similar challenges so that he may live independantly. This is a model program that has all the clients live independantly in their own apartments, and all of their needs are met in the building next door. I cannot speak highly enough about CAL- Center for Adaptive Learning- and the staff.
Book Recommendation– If you want to read more about this program, the clinical director, Nancy Perry, wrote a book titled, “Adults on the Autism Spectrum Leave the Nest.”
I have high respect for Nancy, the best praise I can say is that she really understands autism and the impact on individuals diagnosed with this condition. I highly recommend her book if you have a child, teenager, or young adult with an autism spectrum disorder.
Enjoy your weekend! Carla
