Today is Wearness Wednesday so I’m wearing a neck tie that I made of string and a shoelace with knots in it to bring awareness to #autism. In the last five years I have worked in education and also now with writing a monthly column with Autism Parenting Magazine and I realize that the simple things in the lives of students, parents and teachers mean a lot when it comes to making life better for all of us. A knot in a string creates sensory stimulation for many so just think what we all could do if we simply just touch lives.
It was great to be a guest speaker at Fort Service Learning Magnet Academy for their Fatherhood event with the theme of “A Father’s Role In Education.” After I performed a young man named Jailand approached me to learn how to tie a tie. Brother J learned how to do it after a few tries so at the end of his lesson I gave him my tie as a blessing.
