Fun Activities All Children Will Enjoy

Children love to run, play, discover and learn. Every part of them is growing and developing throughout their formative years to help them become the young adults that will eventually be the future of the world. When a child is diagnosed with autism many parents feel they have to constantly provide work for them that will help them to grow and develop and be able to get beyond the challenges of autism.

Are these activities therapeutic? Yes, many activities are therapeutic in nature. In fact, as long as a child is using their body or their mind for something they are improving their skills and learning. When you have a younger child that is under the preschool age they can enjoy the fun of simpler activities to have the fun and still gain a benefit that is similar to therapy. Here are some great activities for these younger children:

• Box o’ beans – Using a plastic tub or a box, fill it with dried beans and place small toys inside for the child to find. This can be a lot of fun as they discover a new item that feels a bit different in the box.

• Scented bubbles – Who doesn’t love bubbles? Everyone can have fun and if the bubbles have a scent to them it can be a unique discovery for kids to feel and smell the bubbles as they burst on their faces for the first time.

• Finger Painting – Getting messy is a lot of fun too and this is a great way to do it. If you put down protective cloths on the floor you can have a lot of fun creating wild designs together.

• Songs and poems – Most kids respond to music in a way that is positive and upbeat. There are songs to help teach kids how to get dressed or how to eat and kids can even find their own favorite silly song they love to sing to you. Sing along and have a great time together.

For children who are a little older the games become a little more involved and advanced, but don’t have to be any less fun. Some great suggestions for you to play with your kids are:

• I Spy – This is a guessing game that can be wonderful and create lots of laughter.

• Guessing game – Putting an item in the child’s hand and letting them guess what it is can be fun.

• Draw my face – Using a large circle on the paper you can have a child draw the face you make. Don’t hold it too long you might get stuck, but let them have fun creating a silly face of yours.

• Dance Party – This gives kids a chance to get up and move around and have a wonderful time dancing and playing to music.

What Is the ECC Process? How Does It Differ From Partnered Typing Strategies of FC and RPM?

It was rooted in frustration, and a sense of futility as I tried explaining my experiences into an all-too-narrow practice. After quite a bit of wrangling from within, I developed my own custom term and accompanying acronym: Energetically Connected Communication, or ECC for short.

Candidly, I have tried for years to fit my own experiences into partnered typing practices. I tried to influence other people to broaden their definitions to include an energetic link, spiritual connection, shared authorship, innate knowledge, quantum understanding, merging of consciousness… the list goes on! In time, I simply gave up.

One day, I had an epiphany: I finally realized it is time to define what I am doing as a separate process. Partnered typing strategies are often referred as one of two processes: Facilitated Communication (FC) or Rapid Prompting Method (RPM).

FC is a process, where the facilitator provides hand, wrist or arm support to address movement difficulties. RPM, by contrast, is a process that involves a partner. He or she either holds the keyboard or sits in close proximity. Both strategies require joint attention, focus on the keyboard and a need for material to be typed.

On the surface, Energetically Connected Communication looks like FC or RPM. Like the other two practices, joint attention and focus are needed during ECC. The nonverbal person is expected to hit the keyboard. ECC can be further defined by adding the acronyms PS, or Physical Support, which is seen during FC and PC (Proximity Control) or PCT (Proximity Control with Physical Touch) to the person holding the keyboard seen in RPM.

ECC differs by definition.

ECC openly embraces an energetic connection and an evolving quantum form of telepathy, which is different from FC and RPM. It is important to note that not all of a nonverbal person’s information is picked up from the environment. In fact, ECC suggests these souls come in with advanced knowledge most integrated souls have lost.

It is worth noting that ECC does not state communications are ego independent or representative of the absolute truth. To the contrary, ECC embraces partnered communication, where both partners are merging as one. It is a supplement, not a replacement for ego independent strategies. How this complex, ever-evolving partnership affects outcome is admittedly undetermined.

The ECC process understands the need for honesty, full disclosure and study as we continue to explore this mind-boggling anomaly. The ECC process suggests the profound effect this linking of souls can have on both partners. One partner’s strength is quantum free-flowing thought, while the other participant’s strength is characterized by linear language and a current understanding of consciousness.

Most of my experience has been with children and adults diagnosed with severe autism, but I am aware others with significant language handicaps have also exhibited these abilities. To be inclusive, I will coin yet another term. I will refer to these nonlinear thinkers in touch with higher thought forms as Quantists. I will refer to those who partner with them as Agents.

Using ECC with a combination PS (Physical Support) and PCT (Proximity Control and Touch of iPad), Quantist, Anthony Brown, typed this message with me as his Agent:

“New technology thought forms, blending and merging resulting in advanced knowing for all participants. We lead the way for advance level of awareness to be adopted by more integrated thinkers.”

Besides partnered typing, my definition of the ECC process extends to include ECC-T, Telepathy. This aspect refers to receiving information directly from a Quantist, whether across the room or non locally. It also accepts information directly from the collective group of “quantum souls,” many with the diagnosis of severe autism.

The commentary below is an example of direct receiving. It is a process similar to channeling. I tap individually to a particular Quantist or to their collective higher consciousness, non-locally. As with any channeled material, read with discernment. Accept only what may resonate with you. Question what doesn’t.

How would you describe the process of ECC (Energetically Connected Communication)?

ECC, or Energetically Connected Communication, is a process of mutual intent, causing energy particles to coalesce in meaningful structures that allow for an interplay of thought forms to attract the correct words for the meaning to come through. A partner, a person grounded in three-dimensional reality, helps the person with severe autism calm down his chaotic energy flow. The partner unconsciously invites the autistic person to adhere to his energy system. When this happens, their merged energies allow a forging of thought forms that relay messages of inner truths recognized by the subconscious mind.

The ECC process engages spirit. It is in an alliance that tethers and binds participants together for communicative intent. This partnership allows sub-atomic particles the freedom and ability to form a stream of conscious thought forms acceptable to the inner knowing of both partners. This powerful magnetic connection often eludes and confuses the participants. The knowing is so strong between them, yet the blending or connectedness often obscures, if influence occurs.

This form of telepathy is a profound gift that is not about message sending and receiving as much as a shared understanding of higher level thought forms. A knowing, loving, unifying force of wholeness that dissolves the need of being at odds with ourselves or others. Conscious surrender to the process brings us home to the God within where all systems are in place, radiating warmth and kinship.

The earth vibration is speeding up because matter is losing density. Molecules are spreading out to accommodate thought forms from other dimensions that are slipping through to enhance our understanding of inter-dimensional communication. A special antenna, constructed to read form, keeps channels open. Pour light into the channel to clear path. Molecules dance freely in open channel. Conscious, subconscious, and super-conscious thoughts mingle for purpose of understanding reality on a profound level. People unable to receive higher thought forms currently do not understand. This will change.

Nothing about ECC is an absolute science. It evolves as fast as each agent allows. We are at the forefront of ideation on how this process works, what its benefits are and what it means. I am not aware of any studies that have been conducted on this type of energetic collaboration.

Pro Vaccine Prejudice Against Autism: A Look Back

Media reports on autism have not historically emphasized the presence of accompanying disorders in a considerable segment of the autism population. Nevertheless, one affiliate surprised me when it came to vaccine related brain damage compensations that have transpired.

“… CBS News has found nearly 1,300 cases in which vaccine-related brain damage has been compensated in court over the past 20 years. (From: Vaccines, Autism, and Brain Damage – What’s in a Name?)

In July 2010, a family accepted $1.5 million dollars to settle their claim that vaccines cause regression into autism. Mitochondrial disease was the proven predisposing factor, before exhibition of full-blown autistic features. Reports showed acceptance of case merits, with the claim scientifically supported, according to our own government.

Autism, the label, defines a condition of clinically exhibited features-deficits and excesses that present without verifiable cause. Autism is many times accompanied by conditions that have a medically identifiable cause; the incomplete sample of conditions are mitochondrial-disease or -disorder, seizures, phenylketonuria, congenital rubella, tuberous sclerosis, hypothyroidism, and hearing impairment.

Diagnostic criteria allows for overlap in application, between psychiatric and general medical condition labels. For instance, I read about a person who was told their loved one died from Alzheimer’s. But, after the autopsy Creutzfeldt Jakob disease was identified. Or, I learned of a mother who thought her child had autism. But, it turned out to be severe milk allergy. Both conditions were labeled based on clinical observation of behavior, because not all diagnoses are differential. So little is known about some conditions, and diagnostic procedures like blood work or imaging have yet to contribute to a best practice part of diagnosing conditions like autism and Alzheimer’s.

“Not all medical diagnoses are differential ones: some diagnoses merely name a set of signs and symptoms that may have more than one possible cause, and some diagnoses are based on intuition or estimations of likelihood.” ( on differential diagnoses)

A large group was denied victory, in regard to claims that vaccination caused autism in their children. We know, peer reviewed science does not yet propose known causes of autism. So, how did the lawyers present each individual case within a group of so many? Remember, autism is a label given based on clinical observation and testing. It is NOT associated with known cause.

When I heard of this group’s defeat, I immediately wondered if there were autism-affected children in the group with co morbid disorders; ones associated with probability of damage from vaccination. As you have already seen from the former example, peer review does accept instances where vaccination is the cause for devastating neurological illness labeled as something within the autism spectrum.

For the large group, it seems as if the autism label was used as a legal side step by the one rendering a decision to deny validity. Doing so in a universal way, to every single injury claim in the group. Even though, some claims may have been valid. In this unfortunate situation, the mediator excoriated the lawyers’ failure for not furthering understandings in science. But, what about the mediator’s own failure as one who needed to mediate upon all things true within this very complicated debate?

It is a systemic failure that is not solely contingent upon how a set of lawyers present their case. Even if lawyers hinge their bet a little too much upon a controversial scientific claim, there is proven science about vaccination effects that result in brain injury.

Cases where affected individuals are represented individually, instead of by a group, seem to allow for better representation of the possible scientific cause of damage. The aforementioned 1.5 million dollar award supported a family’s claim of a child with mitochondrial disease experiencing detrimental worsening from vaccination into autism features. Nevertheless, one key to this family’s victory was to avoid emphasis on the autism label that their child received. They instead pointed to what was identifiable in scientific terms, and how injury was linked to vaccination.

A woman in England won an appeal, with regard to damage her son suffered from MMR vaccination. She smartly litigated his seizure condition. The reports on that story strongly emphasized the case was NOT about autism. This is because society is conditioned, through lack of complete understanding, to have prejudice against any who carry the autism label. Many think those who have the label fit in a tidy box, whereby vaccination never did hurt them. For that matter, other medical symptoms they have are many times ignored and described as a behavior because of the autism label.

Remember, co morbid disorders that many times accompany autism are the biggest clue to finding out why a child exhibits features of neurological illness. Autism is a kind of misdiagnosis, because we DO NOT know what causes manifestation of autistic features. Furthermore, the autism label has become a smoke screen that many use to deny known risk of brain injury.

Autism Awareness 24-7

April is recognized as Autism Awareness Month around the world. This is a time of great anticipation and reflection as families and organizations muse upon life without barriers for people on the autism spectrum. While we turn our focus to celebratory events highlighting the accomplishments of the autism movement, let us not forget about those on the spectrum who are engulfed in a sea of despair, frustration, and lack of access to employment and sufficient health care. With this in mind, autism becomes the focal point for millions on a daily basis. Their reality is fraught with roadblocks which serve as reminders that the all inclusive discrimination free society we dream of has not come full circle. For the parents and caretakers in the trenches, April seems like just another month since it is difficult to distinguish one unfulfilled promise from another. For too many, autism awareness is a harsh perpetual cycle.

We can all rejoice, on some level, at the progress made thus far in regards to autism. Families gather to marvel at the daughter performing in her first recital despite an earlier prognostication that she would never walk. Teachers are amazed at the musical prodigy as he almost effortlessly performs Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. This display of talent comes from a young man whose parents were advised to seek “behavioral options” as he would never fit into society. The world rejoices when an individual overcomes tremendous odds on the path to success – those on the autism spectrum notwithstanding. For those within the autism community, awareness is not an event limited to one month of the year, but a continuum made up of laughter, tears, trials, and triumphs. Being acutely aware of the full autism experience, has left some members of the autism community question the need for a month dedicated to awareness. While the concern is a valid one, the awareness campaign sheds light on a subject many would prefer remained silent. The primary benefit of Autism Awareness month is education for the rest of the world unfamiliar with the uniqueness of autism. Additionally, a different, and much needed, perspective regarding human potential is on display for all to see.

One of the encouraging trends taking place within the world of autism involves the transitioning of thousands of teens to young adults. We are witnessing the first mass group of autistic adolescents enter adulthood in relatively quiet fashion. However, the economic and social repercussions of approximately 750,000 young people on the spectrum moving into adulthood over the course of the next decade have monumental implications. Employment for these young adults is paramount as the majority of autistic adults are currently either unemployed or underemployed. There are a number of companies worldwide actively engaged in hiring autistic adults in industries ranging from software development and testing to food service preparation. There are no limitations when it comes to the types of jobs individuals on the spectrum are capable of performing. The only real limits are those placed upon them by members of society who may not have a clear understanding of what autism spectrum disorder entails.

The true barrier for adults on the spectrum is a lack of opportunities to equality and access within the workplace. The unique perspectives and talents they offer employers need embracing, rather than being discarded. It is our moral and ethical responsibility to find a way to incorporate their abilities into the fabric of society – including, but not limited to, jobs, appropriate housing, and comprehensive medical care. We are well aware of the tremendous benefits autistic employees bring to the work environment such as the ability to focus intently on a given task, laser like attention to details, the ability to compartmentalize aspects of an assignment, and good old fashioned loyalty. The time has come to fully accept our fellow citizens and commit to the ideal of inclusion.

Find Autism Centers in Your City Online

Different types of health problems trouble people now-a-days. It is very sad to see young children having medical issues. However, life can be tough for some people and it is no surprising to know that a large number of children also have medical issues. One of the behavioral problems which can be noticed in some children is Autism. It is a medical condition in which children are unable to focus on anything and it takes a lot of time to understand simple things. Children with Autism can be noticed in children at an early age when they are more than 2 years.

The behavior of children should never be ignored by parents. If Autism is not diagnosed early then it may get more serious with time. If it will be diagnosed early then doctors can start therapy sessions to have improvement in the behavior of children. There might be many people who need to know what is the treatment for Autism? Such people should know that there is no definite medication or treatment for this problem. However, several activities can be combined together to have some improvement in children.

The first thing which parents need to do for getting treatment for children with Autism is to find an Autism centre. One of the ways to find a center of treatment near your home is to look for it online. Online, people will find websites of different hospitals and treatment centers. People can easily book an appointment with a doctor with the help of the internet. Someone who is already taking medical help for children with Autism would also be able to let you know about the best treatment centers in your city. People with firsthand experience will always have more information with them.

Another disease which is very much like Autism is called Asperger’s disease or Apserger’s Syndrome. It is a kind of Pervasive Developmental Disorder. It means that children with this disease have delay in development of several basic skills. However, children who have this disease are better in language development and have better intelligence level. With the increase in age, the problem with language development may increase. Children with this disease often have issues in mixing with other people. They have issues in communicating with others. Children with this Apergers may also be following certain patterns and not willing to change them at all.

Here are a few things which are done for the Treatment for Aspergers. Therapy sessions form one of the most important actions which are taken for improving the behavior of children. Every child is different and he/she has a different need. Therapy sessions are designed keeping the personality and behavior of a child in mind. Children with problem in speaking the language are given speech therapy so that they can speak without much problem. Social skill therapies are also very important in order to make children comfortable with other people. It is important for children to develop their social skills to do well in life.
