Weekly Whirl – Community Resolutions for 2012!

If anyone knows how hectic life can get – WE DO! That’s why we have created the Autism Speaks Weekly Whirl to fill you in on all of the highlights of the week! The last thing we want is for you to be left out of the loop! Please share with friends and family to spread the word about all of the exciting things going on in the autism community. Keep in mind, these updates aren’t limited to Autism Speaks — we will be featuring news from across the community.

Happy New Year from Autism Speaks!

We asked what your resolutions for 2012 were and here are some of our favorites!

Janet Edghill “Get insurance reform passed in Hawaii!”

Moria Chiavonne “Stress less, smile more.”

Kimberley Jean Pretzer “To enjoy all of the experiences of life.”

Donna Nersesian-Mucha “You guys will probably understand mine (I hope.) My son has Aspergers so everyting’s about him in his mind. This year I told him that it’s the year of Mom. I need to teach him how to have empathy for others needs so I may as well start at home.”

Paul Nicholls “Try to understand that i may NOT understand my son.”

Andi Wells “I hope to continue to stay strong for my daughter and make her life as easy as possible. And to work hard to raise even more autism awareness.”

Ashley Pryde “To find a routine that works for both our boys and make a happier household all round”

Noreene Bailey-Treece “Art work for a show. the natural world from the aspergers view, a natural part of the human spectrum.”

Keisha Jamaica “Stop blaming myself and my son’s dad for our son autism. I finally accept it but also stop having anxiety about his future and how people will treat him. Cuz its a scary world out there.”

Natalie Wright “To try and see the world through my sons eyes!”

Lorrie S. LeBeaux “To make more time for mama, and find more things that mama and her big son both enjoy doing!”

    Through the years I have learnt to accept that not every problem has a solution.

    i hope to help people with autism families to find the help they need. my daughter is 22 and i have seen and learned a lot. let people know it’s not their fault and that there are many of us out there that have felt that way too. hope that we can start with therapies that help and not make false hopes. including music therapy and more understanding of expressions of an autistic person. THANK YOU AUTISM SPEAKS
