Hi. We’re Asperkids: It’s Nice To Meet You.

Autism isn’t usually thought of as funny.  And you know what? It isn’t always funny. Sometimes it can be crazy-making. Isolating. Scary.

But that’s really true of any life…if you’re not hanging out with the right kind of friends.

The right friends can show you how to laugh even when there’s coffee in your hair (or ears….or eyes). That’s us.  That’s Asperkids. The RIGHT kind of friend.

Asperkids has become more than books or a company…it’s become a “world wide movement” (We didn’t say that!) because we believe in “no big deal” and “we can do hard things,”

…in smart ideas spoken simply

…in “rock, paper, scissors, Spock”

…and in “life is short: use more glitter.”

From first-person insight, Jennifer takes being, raising, teaching and loving folks on the autism spectrum very seriously.

She just doesn’t take herself too seriously.

Because when you can balance wit and wisdom there’s always room to discover joy-if you choose to.

There’s always a way to see the “AWESOME.” Even when you step on a Lego. With coffee in your hair.

The Box: Show Anxiety Where It Can Go

Anxiety. It is, by far, the single-biggest obstacle that gets in the way of nearly everything spectrum folks have to think about….do….learn….and try. You may see meltdowns. Or tantrums. Or arguments. Or questioning. Or procrastination. Or freezing-up. But what you’re really seeing, if you peel away the bandage, is fear. Maybe fear of rejection – […]
