Autism - Support Across the Spectrum Autism - Support Across the Spectrum

Why I love when other kids on the spectrum have parties...

Ashton's friend from school had a bowling party yesterday for his 8th birthday and Ashton had a blast! They rented out a small bowling alley, made their own food (kid friendly food), the noise level was low considering it was a bowling alley..they had no music on and everyone there was his family (totally supportive of kids with autism) and a few friends... My typical dd had a birthday party to go to at the same time at a fun center so I went with Ashton and took Jackson and my hubby with Madelyn and I admit I was nervous but it ended up being great. Ashton did really well bowling and wants to do it again. :)

Aww I love it!! I wish there were more people like that here!

D is a big bowler! It was my DH's idea to get him started and he loves it! In the Summer they have a league that he and Dh are on. But they are so familiar with everyone there that Dillon is very cOmfortable. This is from this morning... =)

That might be something Ashton may like to do on the weekends or during Summer vacation. At the end of the Summer everyone gets atrophy and they have a pizza party.
