In the Driver’s Seat

Excellent ARM Parenting & Sharing Workshop last night on the subject of driving and vision/perception. Terrific speakers on hand to address various issues and answer parents’ concerns.

Our profound thanks to Dan Mulrenin of Teen Road to Safety – Newport and Kauser Sharieff, OD FCOVD FNORA, of Vision Performance Optometric Center. And as always, a big thank you to the YMCA of OC for hosting!  TRTS  Vision Performance Center-logo  —  A brilliant program in Australia that rewards kids for safe driving.

sparkly heartA heartfelt evening of sharing and caring and supporting one another. Last night at A HEART-TO-HEART WITH MOM, we welcomed familiar faces and many new ones. And we discussed co-occurring conditions with autism. Among other topics.

Get in on the fun next month! We meet again on Thursday, Oct. 8 at 7 p.m. Be sure to RSVP to save your space at the table.

Mom Knows Best!

ARM is a good family resource. After all, Mom knows best!

“Debora has become such an amazing resource for our family. From IEPs, gluten-free eating or just plain moral support, she rocks! She is extremely knowledgeable and personable. She is my go-to and has become a dear friend through our shared experiences. Her ‘A Heart-to-Heart with Mom’ roundtable sessions are therapeutic for me and lots of other parents.”                   —Shannon, mom, Anaheim, CA
