No more Dora the Explorer

by Jessica

My son who has Aspergers is not allowed to watch Dora the Explorer.

The cartoon teaches kids a lot but what my little guy got out of it is why is it not to be watched anymore. The cartoon asks kids to yell at objects to get the objects to do things; like a door to open.

My little guy walked up to the front door after watching Dora the Explorer and said open, the door did not open so he said it louder, again it did not open.

So, one last time he screamed open, it did not open. He was so upset about the door not opening that he laid on the floor in front of the door crying that the door would not open.

My little guy is so wonderful, he brings me joy every day. :)

Hi Jessica!

Thank you so much for sharing your story with us!

I have always loved looking at the world through my son's eyes and the joy he brings to my life is immeasurable.

And they'll probably never realize how much joy they do bring to our lives.

Please give him a hug for me and if he's at the stage where he gets excited about people in other states tell him I said here's a hello from Washington. :)

Again thank you so much for sharing!

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!
