Good Stuff

Time for a few announcements! I am periodically contacted by various companies or organizations for product reviews or links to sites or requests to post videos, and I am happy to accommodate whenever I can. I try to post them on a quarterly basis, and since I haven’t since spring, I’ve got a few I’d like to mention.

Unfortunately I’m not able to do every product review that I’m contacted about, but I really wanted to do this one because I love pears, and I feel strongly about the importance of organic foods in our diet. GoGo Juice is ripe, peeled, organic pear juice, pure and simple. I received my sample with instructions to dilute it with 40% water, which I did. Since Nigel does not drink much juice, Aidan and I tasted it. I found it to be light and lovely, but Aidan felt it was a little too light. He preferred a 25-30% dilution. At any rate, it’s a really healthy, tasty juice that I feel good about having in our home. And not only that, GoGo Juice supports autism awareness! They will donate $1 to the Autism Society of America for every new Facebook fan until the end of September! Click here to go to their Facebook page.

Up next, I received a notice about a program by CVS Caremark called All Kids Can, a five-year, $25 million commitment aimed at making life easier for children with disabilities. They have launched a Facebook page that serves as a community for families, teachers, and experts alike to share stories, pictures, or articles and have conversations related to helping children of all abilities to learn, play, and succeed in life. They’ll also be posting articles from experts, news, and videos on the latest innovations benefiting kids of all shapes, sizes and abilities. See the website for more information about the program:

Lastly, I would like to draw your attention to the Teen Autism Social Groups page. I started it two years ago, and since that time there have been several postings, including one in Australia! Take a look and see if there are any near you. If not, many of them can be contacted by email, and you can connect that way. As we bloggers know, there is great support to be had across the Internet ether. Feel free to let me know if you’d like me to post a listing there for you as well!

    Wow, the social group page is such a great idea. My son has been in one, here in Florida, for years. Unfortunately, no one his age signed up this year.

    College Living for Students with Learning Disabilities, Executive functioning Deficits, Autism Spectrum Disorders (including Autism, Aspergers, and PDD-NOS)

    For students with special needs, life after high school is full of possibilities, including college.

    Finding the right college program for students with autism spectrum disorders, Asperger’s, nonverbal learning disorder, ADD/ADHD and other learning disabilities is vital for a college student’s transition into independent adulthood. The right program should provide support for each student’s unique needs and goals.

    With the help of New Directions, young adults with learning disabilities are experiencing independence for the first time in their lives. Some of our clients pursue collegiate endeavors and some pursue vocational training/tracks. New Directions helps students attend universities, community colleges, and technical and vocational schools.

    Those look like some solid organizations. I’ll have to try that pear juice sometime! I’ve never had it before, but I love the taste of a good pear cider, so I’m sure it must be delicious.
