One of the great things about blogging is discovering blogs from across the globe, particularly those who write about parenting special needs children. One such blog that I have recently discovered is At Home Mum, an Australian blogger who writes a variety of articles on family and children, business and work as well as life on the autism spectrum. It is well worth checking out whether or not you have autistic children.
Anyway, At Home Mum has recently started a bloglink to celebrate Autism Mummies and Daddies from across the world and the incredible work that this community does.
To support this, I am sharing an old post on Autism and Pets which illustrates how therapeutic pets can be for autistic people. We often hear about how horses and dogs are used to help autistic people but I wonder how many people are aware of how small animals can also help autistic children.
