New Title and New Info

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.
