HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ONE AND ALL

 

 

When you Google  ‘Autism and Thanksgiving’, you’ll find a lot articles with very good practical suggestions on how to navigate this holiday without creating needless stress for your autistic child. 

But the concept of ‘giving thanks’ at Thanksgiving is harder to find, and often harder to express.  

Adrienne, who writes the blog ‘Whole New Mom’, said it very well in her post “Why I am Thankful for---Autism”.  What follows are excerpts from this post, but you can read the whole thing here:

“….along the path of healing that we have been on, some days I think, “How would I really feel if I were to wake up and find that my son was completely healed?

And I realize that, I am thankful for autism.  Or rather, I am thankful for the parts of my son that have been made special by his affliction. 

Here is some of what I mean: 

Honesty 

When my son says something, he means it.  There really is no wondering with him.  Try to get that with any other kid (or person, for that matter.). 

Loyalty 

My son sticks close with a fierce loyalty to trustworthy people.  No matter how many times I (and my husband) blow it with him (lose patience, yell when we should hug, etc.), he still loves us.  He sees past our failings and sees our hearts and continues loving and forgiving us.  No matter what. 

Inquisitiveness  

Like me, he wants to know about everything.  He asks questions ad nauseum and they can go on and on.  I get frustrated regularly about the onslaught of questions, but truth be told, if he stopped asking, I would miss hearing what his inquisitive soul was pondering. 

Healing Help 

This “crisis” of autism has helped me to see other health issues in our family and learn how to better deal with them.  Figuring out how to better help my son has helped me to better help my entire family.  And, as a result, it has led me to learn about better health overall.  I've read books and scoured the internet endlessly for health information that has helped me to help him.  And us.  And hopefully now others.  Like you. 

Community  

Because of autism, I have made many friends whom I never would have known otherwise, both locally and on the web.  Autism groups, bloggers, etc.  I am so thankful for the inspiration and friendship of others who are on the same path as us.  A big hug to all of you from me.”

 AUTISM FUNDING FORMS

Need to order products under the BC Autism Funding Branch?

We can help with the paperwork and payments.  

By working with us, you can tell the Branch to pay Perfect Day directly.  You won't have to pay and wait for reimbursement.  We'll do the waiting for you.

In order for us to get started, we need a copy of the approval letter from the Branch as well as a copy of the form that was filled out by your Behavioural Consultant or other recognized health care professional.  It's called a Justification for Equipment/Supplies (also known as the JFE) , and you can find a blank copy of it here.

Once we get those two documents, we in turn fill out a form called the Request To Pay (or RTP).  We fill that out for you, and attach our quote.  We send the form and quote back to you via email. All you have to do is sign and date the form, and send it in to the Branch.  If you wish, you can send it back to us and we'll get it to the Branch, whatever you find easier.

Once e receive approval of our quote, we deliver the order to you. And that's it!

We act in the strictest confidence.  We've worked with numerous families this way and all have been very pleased with the process.

Call (250.216.2445) or email us if you have any questions.
