We are a family of 4, Mom, Dad, HarperLynn and our pet dog Roxy (not a service dog but a great companion to HarperLynn)
This page is our account about HarperLynn. We cover her journey of school and being pre-verbal. The struggles we encounter on a daily basis and the milestones she has hit so we can look back and see how far she’s come.
It’s very easy sometimes to think progress hasn’t been made but documenting on this page has helped me see how far she has actually come.
Happy as a mother is a platform focused on maternal (paternal) mental health. With free resources such as the Happy as a Mother podcast and an Instagram page that offers infographics on parenthood related issues, it aims to support parents of all walks of life in their own mental health.
The mental health of young children is deeply rooted in the parent’s mental health, so it is important that you care for yourself!
Movement Matters offers education and support for parents, caregivers, and teachers through their online courses and community.
In these courses, you will learn the science of behavior, and how to implement sensory, motor, and behavior activities and strategies at home and in the classroom.
I teach in a special school for children with a dual diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder and moderate Global Developmental Delay. I am currently in an Early Intervention class for children aged 3 – 5.
I am Amanda Mc Guinness, Autism Writer, Blogger and Educator. I have 4 children; my oldest daughter Hailey and my 3 Autistic sons; Conor (9), Jack (5) and Max (2).
Online, I help to support other Special Needs families by writing about my experiences as a Special Needs mom. I share educational resources for FREE over on my website www.littlepuddins.ie and answer parents questions daily over on my Instagram @littlepuddins.ie
My oldest son Conor was one of the youngest infants ever diagnosed with Autism in County Mayo at the time and was also one of the most severe cases of Autism that had ever been seen. Conor’s diagnosis has altered my life’s course and has enabled me to reach thousands of families around the world since. What started out as a lonely life driving the roads of Ireland at night on my own with my little boy has resulted in a happy family life, busy and stressful but full of love.
I am a Law Graduate and use my academic skills to educate my children at home. I regularly share my educational resources and advices for free on line with parents. I home school my two oldest sons and have taught Conor to read, write and do basic maths.
I would love to have you come along this journey with us. You can find me over on Instagram daily or on my website www.littlepuddins.ie
Until next time,
I am a passionate Special Education Teacher who has a wide variety of SEN experience in my seven years teaching.
I have also worked on the Junior Cycle Level Two Team & have completed the Graduate Diploma in SEN. My goal for @teachingteensdifferently is to share ideas, resources and goals for teens with SEN.
I feel teens with SEN can be overlooked. I want to encourage parents and teachers to push our teens with SEN to their full potential!
