Dyspraxia Awareness Week: What You Need To Know

Dyspraxia Awareness Week : What You Should Know
Beauty Brite Disclosure

It’s Dyspraxia Awareness week and with my son being newly diagnosed, I am making it a personal goal to both educate and advocate for those who have Dyspraxia.

Dyspraxia is a Developmental Coordination Disorder that can affect one’s gross motor skills, motor planning, and coordination. There is a lot of grey area when it comes to a true diagnosis of this condition due to the fact that it often mimics other disorders.

This Diagnosis is also usually accompanied by other disorders ranging from ADHD, Sensory Processing, Autism, and Anxiety just to name a few.

Come learn with me this week about Dyspraxia and what all that has entailed for my family personally.

Summer Fun with This 3D Board Game

Summer break is almost here and I am already “tired” of hearing, “I’m Bored”. It happens every year. The first few days of summer are a bliss. Sleeping in, relaxing, and unwinding from the constant motion of a school time routine. After those first few days though, it turns into a constant mantra of “I’m Bored”. It’s inevitable. One of my favorite ways to get through this boredom, however, is board games.

This is Melanie and she is 4 years old in the 99th Percentile, just to give you an idea of the size of Gridopolis.

The new school year is right around the corner. Did you know that 1 in 5 children in the United States has learning disabilities and attention issues like Dyslexia and ADHD? Did you know that 31% of those with learning issues, such as dyslexia and ADHD, are more likely to be bullied than their peers?

In the year 2019, we are raising more awareness than ever when it comes to causes we believe in. Whether it be equal rights, a cleaner environment, or even education. I believe young minds are most open during their youth. Why not use this as an opportunity to raise awareness about Learning Disabilities too?

I have been on the hunt for new items that may appeal to my children for a while now. Educationally and play based.

Autism: What I Wish I Knew Then

Autism What I Wish I Knew Then
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Autism. It’s just a word. A diagnosis. But i look back today and remember the fear this embarked in me when I first heard the word Autism in relation to my child. I have no idea why except the fact that the potential diagnosis of Autism wasn’t something I expected to hear. I didn’t expect to hear Autism when I took my son for his 15 month wellness visit and I mentioned a lack of words. He didn’t talk much at all then. A few babbles and that was it. Before that moment, I don’t even recall knowing anything about Autism. Just that in my eyes it meant there was something “wrong” with my child. A term I had heard in passing but dismissed as something that doesn’t happen to people like me. I also didn’t know then, that Autism is a word not the end of the world.
