I am listening to a great book by Arthur Fleischmann and Carly Fleischmann called Carly's Voice.

Carly is a young lady with ASD who finds her voice through typing. She has given valuable insight to what living with ASD is like for her. Thank you Carly! Arthur does a great job of accurately depicting what life with ASD is like for the caregiver.  As I listen to the rich detail that Carly is able to use to describe her environment, I can't help but wonder a few things. Does my daughter see the world in a similar way? What lurks beneath the heavy shield of Autism for my daughter? What is she keenly aware of that she can't express? Like Carly, my daughter practices typing and emailing everyday.  Unlike Carly, so far, her typing has not opened the world of her inner psyche, to me. I was hoping it would when I insisted she give up handwriting for typing a few years ago. When she emails me, I get emails that may be typed by her but the thinking was done for her. When she types on her own I get a laundry list of things that she likes. For example she types her favorite video and list some relatives at random.  I have been hoping to get emails that are a little more thought provoking. I still remain faithful that she is in there. Until then I continue to find new ways for both her and I to survive Autism.

The U in 'BUFFERS' stands for 'Unearth New Territory  i.e.  keep digging. Sometimes I feel that I am digging to China with a spoon! This can be very frustrating, exhausting, depressing and can bring on a whole new wave of grieving for one's loss.

How do we continue to ‘Unearth New Territory’ and trade our spoon in for a bigger shovel or even a bulldozer? I think the answer to this lies in the power of numbers. You can't just throw one piece of pasta to the ceiling and hope it sticks, sometimes  you have to throw the whole pot! When you are dealing with Autism you may need to throw more then one pot, perhaps then, something will stick!  To support this effort I find it helpful to ask myself the following questions: What is working?  What else could I be doing to support what is already working? Who can support me with this effort? What are my resources? What resources aren't I using?

My goal for the next few weeks is to think of three new things that I am going to try. I will try them one at a time and rule each ‘in’ or ‘out’ before I go on to the next one.  I invite you to join me!  Let's 'Unearth New Territory' together! Let's try something new to get our kids from underneath Autism!  Please comment and let me know what new things you have tried and whether or not they worked. I am looking forward to hearing from you! Do I smell pasta cooking?
