Meet Teresa from Embracing the Spectrum.
I met Teresa through a Twitter party that we both regularly participate in, and I thoroughly enjoy her posts. Her ‘Who Are We’ gives a little information about who she, and the cast of characters in her family are. She identifies herself as ‘The Narrator,’ her husband ‘The Manager’ and her two beautiful boys as ‘Squeaker’ and ‘Big Guy.’ I love it – what a lovely family!
My name is Teresa.
Who am I? Simply put, I am a wife, the mother of two beautiful boys, and a special education teacher. My life is uniquely tied to autism and children with disabilities since my oldest son has autism and I also happen to work with children with all sorts of disabilities, including autism. I’m hoping that what I write here will provide support, encouragement, and awareness of autism and those who have individuals in their families diagnosed with autism. From my perspective, a child’s diagnosis of autism does not necessitate devastating thoughts, nor does it negate a child’s potential. This blog will talk about our day-to-day achievements and struggles as a family in which one person happens to carry a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Occasionally, I may also talk about work, especially when it comes to how work life impacts home life. The message I hope to deliver, though, is a big one. We are, first and foremost, a family. We experience ups and downs like any other family. No matter what happens, though, we never lose sight of love and hope in our journey through this life.
Her blog is beautifully written, well researched and contains not just her personal experiences and thoughts, but useful information for children with learning difficulties and disabilities. She’s a member of lots of different blog networks and has a brilliant relationship with a whole community of bloggers. She’s also been extremely supportive of my posts…
Here are Teresa’s social media links:
She post regularly on both and I find it really easy to follow her posts directly through Twitter, but there are lots of options available to you for your preferred social media outlet!
Please don’t leave comments on this post – go directly to hers and share the #bloglove!
