Longtime readers know that I never use a blog post just to link to other sites. Other blogs do that, but I’ve been updating this blog (usually) weekly for six years and haven’t done that…until now. I mean, if this virus can disrupt everything else, why not this blog?

Just thought you might want to know what we’re reading that’s about autism and the coronavirus. Is it hard to be in a house 24/7 with Dar? Sure. And maybe reading some of this makes it a just a tiny bit easier:

Also, these two doctors

created these 30 different modules for parents of kids on the spectrum:

Meanwhile, Dar’s teacher has been sending me videos for Dar to watch. I do try to get him to watch these, but uhhhh, it doesn’t always go that well. Anyway, since this blog is about Dar, here’s his curriculum, such as it is:

Cinco de Mayo

…Dar isn’t very interested in these, which means I do other exercises with him.

Wow, do I miss real teachers teaching Dar.

That’s all for this week. Have a good weekend!
