LSNED Days 1&2

So we are off and away with this now and already I am playing catch up! I also have not followed the prompts either! Day 1 I was back at school for and INSET training on ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) It was very interesting and one of the most visual images that I will take away was the idea that we all have an "anxiety bucket" inside us. We manage to keep ours at about half full unless we are doing something we are uncomfortable with, but generally we take these things in our stride and our bucket doesn't get to right full up. Someone with ASD has a bucket that is permanently on three quarters wonder it doesn't take much for them to be overcome by anxiety and not be able to cope with changes. I hope that in the future I will be able to remember this when I am trying to help the children at school.
Day 2 and Jasper and Eliza, my youngest two, started secondary school today so I couldn't ignore this vital life moment! Needless to say they were less than obliging so I never did get a decent pic of them on their first day! Kids huh!
