New Year Prep: 2018 Edition

happy-new-year

Hello! Whew, we made it through 2017!

I hope everyone had a wonderful week full of holiday festivities!

With 2018 right around the corner (like, literally), I will be doing some tweaking of things on the site. I’m not sure if I want a brand new layout or not, but I’m playing around with the idea.

I will also be looking into collaborating with other bloggers to do guests posts, making/posting videos, and giving case studies. In other words, it’s about to get a lot more interactive!

Finally, I really want to do some workshops in several possible areas, including LA, the Bay Area, South Florida, and even New York City. I will keep everyone posted!

So while I may be quiet for the next week or so, trust that I am working on really making SPARC Guidance into something amazing. I hope all of you join me for the ride.

Have a wonderful, fun, and safe New Year, and I will see everyone in 2018!

 

Autism Empathy Kit

First, a lovely Happy New Year to all of you! I hope you had as much fun saying goodbye to 2016 as I did!

Being that my business is all about expanding autism awareness and acceptance, I was intrigued by this article about an empathy kit. It was created by a design student who has an autistic sibling. It addresses quite a few of the sensory challenges of autism, including taste, hearing, and vision. Combining something like this with my presentations could make for an even more engaging experience for those who take the trainings.

Check out the article and let me know what you think. Is this a good start on such a concept? What would you add or adjust with the kit?

Also, if you know any groups or organizations who would love an interactive and informative introduction to understanding autism, send them to my classes page or drop me an email!
