I've decided to change the title of this blog to The Other Side of the Mirror to keep with my website theme of Past The Mirror. It's a nice Lewis Carroll reference and after re-reading Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, I can see some parallels with the autism experience. Alice is literally plunged into a world whose rules she doesn't understand and which seem to change in bewildering ways.
It can also be seen as a nice metaphor for getting inside my head and letting my inner thoughts be broadcast over the digital realm.
I'm feeling rather pleased with the change. I wasn't a huge fan of "Welcome To My World" but I had trouble thinking of something better. (I am awful with titles. I suspect it may become a challenge to my writing career.)
I've also added new information to my Corner Pieces Autism site. There is a new tab for Referrals. This is to give families information on autism-accomodating professionals and businesses. I decided not to include therapy references because I think those are decisions every parent has to make for themselves. But some restaurants, theatres, etc are more accomodating than others when it comes to being accepting of a child with special needs.
I also found a new tip for my Tips and Tricks section: using photo albums for social stories. Insert your pages into the plastic sleeves and you have a durable little book.
