BOOKS, VIDEOS, AND PODCAST
Moms Going Boldly is two moms who are Star Trek fans, and who also happen to write about autism, talking about the new Star Trek: Discovery television series.
If you enjoy Star Trek and have been watching the new series (because spoilers!), Vickie of Taking it a Step at a Time and I invite you to join us!
We make comparisons to the older series, the movies, and throw in a little bit of autism when we see it. It’s not polished, it won’t come out regularly, but we’re having fun! Click the podcast box in the sidebar or here to listen to the latest episode.
If you are interested in watching the show with your child, please note that it is rated TV-MA and there are some scenes not suitable for younger children. Please click here to learn more.
For the fun of it, I tried my hand at turning a selection of Autism Mom articles into e-books. The result was “Building in Circles” available on Amazon for the lowest price I could set.
While the books are comprised of articles freely available on the Autism Mom website, if you prefer to keep your favorites available to you at any time electronically, the books are an efficient way to download selections of articles to your device.
The Navigator decided he wanted to write a book, too. Of course his was about dinosaurs! It is a fun story, available as both an e-book and paperback.
When I worked my full-time, outside the house job, I gave a lot of presentations. It was just part of what I did – wrote stuff and then presented on it.
After I left that job to work from home to better support the Navigator, I still had that “make a presentation” mind-set about a lot of the tools and strategies we were developing.
First I started making presentations on Prezi (I love Prezi – it is like Power Point except in a non-linear format).
The problem with Prezi is that to make it available on the internet folks have to go to the Prezi site. You can’t just embed it into the body of an article, for example, and that makes it less convenient for people to watch.
So I converted the Prezis into YouTube videos. Those are the videos available on the Autism Mom YouTube channel, like the video tutorial on how I help my son clean his room, and how we eliminated screen time on school days based on the article Never on a School Day.
The videos and their corresponding articles are listed on the right of this page.
