Fun Outside the Lines

sensesImage by Norma Desmond via FlickrWhat do you know about autism?  Me not much.  But I am trying to learn.  Why?  Well, I have a niece that has been diagnosed with Autism.  And in reading we have begun to wonder if College Girl is not without Asperger syndrome? 

Now a few of the things I do know is that change is not easy for these folks.  Routine helps them stay on track.  And it is easy for them to loose control when confronted with a lot of stimulus.  So family outings can be pretty tricky.  For my Christmas present to my brother and sister-in-law, I have a book called 'Coloring Outside Autism's Lines'With one in every ten children diagnosed with autism this is not an uncommon ground.  Soon you can get caught up in the proper care needed and forget that family fun is so important.  But here is 50 different activities and adventures to help keep the fun in the family outings.  I especially love the idea for a backyard zip line.  Now that sounds like a blast. 

I am really hoping it can help bring more joy to my niece and her family.  They are a good loving family that are willing to see life as an adventure.  I pray they can pass that on to my niece.  I know that weather it be rock climbing, photography or kyacking, that they try to enjoy the moments in life.
