This is Stacey’s sign book - done to help
With communication when language was a barrier.
Long before she could talk she could sign! Actually this was long before she walked either!
Now 17 years on and we still revert back to some of the basic signs.
Such an amazing system. Does anyone else use sign language in their homes? ...
My girls love Tae Kwon Do. How far they have both come physically over the past few years is mind blowing. Both in their ability and their confidence.
This pic says so much to me. It says Thank you for giving us a go. Thank you for making it fun. Thank you for teaching us. Thank you for believing in us.
In the lifetime of my girls we have tried many sports and activities just wanting our girls to have a piece of a normal life. A chance to have fun with their peers. A chance for a taste of inclusion.
We found it in Imugi - if you are local check out their page www.facebook.com/ImugiMA/
Kell and Tony run an awesome school for their Star Imugis (those needing a little extra help) and their mainstream classes and the two cross over at times with each other.
This pic shows that inclusion and shows pure joy in an average Monday Afternoon class for all involved.
Living life and loving every minute. So thankful my girls have this opportunity that we haven’t found anywhere else. ...
Whilst I know not a lot of my clients are local, nor do they all have young children - for those of you who are, and who do - this looks like a really good event to attend. And its FREE!
If you are not local and know of anything like this in your area, please send it to me so I can share it here for others in your area as well. Remember wherever you are, I am registered Australia wide, and have clients in multiple states across the country who would love to know what is on! ...

As a parent it is hard enough to watch others’ kids do what is considered normal and realize your kids’ might take a lot longer to achieve that - or in fact that it is beyond their ability to even do it ever.
I remember watching people at restaurants with their kids thinking wow we can’t even go out as a family (due to one hyperactive daughter) and I guess I self judged myself. Of course, so many other things to, but strangely it was looking at this kind of “normal” that I desperately wanted.
So we all self judge ourselves enough without needing to be judged by others.
