Spending A Little Time Online

I spent the morning having fun on YouTube.  Aside from Facebook, it’s another internet site where you can “waste” time…I’m not kidding – it’s seriously addictive!  I started by watching ‘The Kennedy Center Honors’ from last year, and an hour later I was asking myself, “seriously, what did I just do??”

But YouTube has its useful side too, especially if you are looking for help with your autistic children.  For starters, take a look for the Autism Treatment Center of America and The Son-Rise Program.  Here are just a couple of great links that can help get you started down that “geez, it’s been an hour already?” path….

(in this video, you hear a little bit about Nathan from the perspective of his mother, who’s speaking in a lovely Irish accent…)


(in this video, you hear about Jake’s recovery from autism, and Jake’s parents, Brian and Susan were also in our first Son-Rise start up and have enjoyed the same success as we’ve had with Kyle!)


(and in this video, you can see Kyle’s first ever fashion collection, and yes, that’s Kyle talking with Marsh Gay Harden!)

So you see, YouTube can be a very useful way to spend an hour, or two, or three, especially if what you are watching incredible videos filled with help and hope – you never know what will be that one message you hear that will inspire you to take bold action in helping your little youngster with autism.  Log on and give it try…it’s really fun!
