Backyards and metal detectors

by Diane Dennis
(Oak Harbor WA USA)

I remember one year my daughter requested a metal detector for Christmas.

She thought that the metal detector not only detected that something was in the ground, but that it would suck it up out of the ground! That alone makes me smile.

When she found out that wasn't the way it works, she talked her brother/my son into being the digger.

They would go out in the backyard and she would carry the metal detector and wear the headphones, and he would carry the shovel, and they would walk literally shoulder to shoulder as they cruised the backyard looking for treasures.

She would let him know when she heard a beep in the headphones, and tell him to dig, which he did.

They never found any gold or trinkets or anything but my treasure was watching them. :o)

Book Reviews

I'm so tickled that authors have been contacting me and asking me to review their new books for them!

Please contact me if you'd like me to review yours. :)

Fiction, Non-fiction, Auto-Biographies, Instructional books, etc., I'm interested in them all. :)

For as much time as I spend researching Asperger's Syndrome this website should have thousands of pages but because my son has Asperger's Syndrome I find that the things I want to work on very often are not the things that I have to work on so I'm still not able to spend as much time on it as I'd like to.

As he heads into adulthood (he turned 20 on Dec 13 and yep I need to update some areas of the website where it has his age) I'm finding that I have even less time on my hands as I spend more time trying to master the puzzle of how to help him transition into "life after high school".

That's where Autism Tomorrow: The Complete Guide To Help Your Child Thrive In The Real World comes in.

It's a guide to help your kids after high school. You'll find parts of the book will be applicable and some won't depending on your child's current age. Although the title implies "Autism after high school" there is still quite a bit in there about what to do help prepare your child for "real life".

It's a great book!
