To help me along, please send a donation my way. I want to raise $1000 for ASPECT and I'm not even halfway there. Donate a little or a lot. I really don't mind. But please consider donating so other kids can have the same opportunities that my son had to maximise his potential from a young age.
BTW I went up to see ASPECT's Hunter school this week and it was wonderful to see how many kids they are helping. So help me, help them!
I'm Kirsty and I blog about being an autism parent at http://www.myhometruths.com. I have three wonderful kids, with my two eldest on the higher end of the autism spectrum.

Forget about wearing blue, gold or rainbow colours to support autism awareness. It's time to choose to take real action to make autism awareness an everyday reality. Here are some ways you can do that right now.

I recently completed Kate's 10 day SEO Challenge. I've been blogging for nearly 5 years and thought I knew a fair bit about SEO but even in her free course, Kate was able to share information that I genuinely learned and benefited from.
