Anyone that has an Autistic child or adult in their family really needs to attend the get together at Dallas Theater in Dallas at 6:00 pm Nov. 3rd . One of the major goals of this event is to be able to organize a network of friends for individuals with special needs that get together weekly with others like themselves and to develop somewhat of a social life, in turn providing support, positive emotions and boosting self esteem through friends. Many children who suffer from Autism often feel very lonely that they are not part of anything, which in turn adds depression and anger. I am trying to help these people but I can't do it alone. (There would be no one to help ohmy.gif ) There is not going to be a cost for these groups either. Come to the meeting on Nov 3rd there will be a lot of important info and help me help you!

If you know of someone who has a child that is autistic, has down syndrome, or any other unique ability, this could be the start of something good and will help bring awareness to this population of our community. This sort of advocacy and support can affect bigger and better outcomes at the gold dome. These kids deserve all that we can get for them. Whether it be in the form of education and entertainment for siblings of special needs (and these brothers and sisters put up with a lot at times. LOL!) or a summer camp for a special needs child. Please come out and help support this effort even if you aren't directly affected by someone with a disability.

Aspergers is a level of autism. ADHD is also considered a learning disability as it inhibits his ability to learn. The attention span and activity level is what needs the focus.
My son is ADHD. Super smart, but if he isn't on his meds his mind is racing and cannot focus on one structured thought.
I encourage all to attend this if you even THINK your child possibly benefit.

I'm looking forward to attending this meeting and appreciate the opportunity! I am excited to be a part of it and want to help in any way that I can. For years, I've heard parents complain about the lack of programs and services in Paulding. There have been numerous attempts to start support groups to no avail. These are exciting days in Paulding and across Georgia! There are many possibilities for our children/teens/adults that we've never had before and more to come in the future! I really hope you all will come out to see what is available and what's being done to make a difference in the lives of those with special needs! NOW IS THE TIME... please be informed and supportive!!!!


jdabbs.. thank you for what you are doing... One person can do a lot, but together we can do so much more and I look forward to working with you!

I know how that is. I will be bringing my son but as my office is just across the street, I'll be able to corral him there if it becomes overwhelming.

Actually, though, my son seems to do better in crowds ... it kind of intimidates him and he is more likely to behave when there are a lot of folks around.

When there are just a few folks around, he thinks he can get away with stuff ... you know, sneak over the unguarded refrigerator and suck down a half-dozen 12-ounce cans of cola; walk in the QT and grab an arm full of donuts ... you know the important things.

But he's had some advantages with crowds having participated in special olympics (won gold but mostly bronze at equestrian events at Perry - ditto on the bronze at the state Special Olympics swim meet.) There's one for you. two years ago, a lot of the participants were on the apron next to the pool waiting for the event to begin. No one was to be in the water and they announced it.

Of course Austin gets down on the apron, ignores the statement on the loudspeaker that no on is to be in the water and instead, he hit it at a full run about six or seven feet out ... Seeing the coaches try to coax him out was funny as hell smile.gif

:clapping: EVERYONE PLEASE PLEASE Pass the word. Has anyone heard people talking about this?? I heard a lot of people say they were going to be there. This is a really great thing for Paulding County. The more research I have done the more obvious as to how behind we are in this community for serving the people who need help. The larger the turn out the more services we are likely to bring into this community. The event is tomorrow night. There is a lot planned. Please join us :yahoo:

Hey jdabbs65,
Please correct me if I am wrong in stating this, but this not only involves those with disabilities such as down syndrome, autism, etc... This meeting is all inclusive of all disabilities whether it be mental, physical, or emotional. Doesn't matter if the person was born with it, acquired it progressively or became disabled as a result of an accident. If you even think you need to be there, then you should be. Help us help each other and help build an alliance and voice for those who can't necessarily speak up for themselves. (Okay, I'm stepping down off my soapbox now. :blush: )

I have a real nice order of events so it will be a very nice evening. :clapping:

I have made arrangements so I can be at the meeting tonight. Now for the obvious question -- and those that know me will expect this -- where is the Dallas theater? :blush:

I am so completely directionally challenged :lol: Directions from EP and the Hwy 92 would be so much appreciated :wub:

I am changing the focus of my photographic business to work much more with children with special needs.

The business model for most photographic studios is shoot'em, get their money and move on to the next session.

With careful planning and understanding of the subject's needs, taking the time to work at their pace, great and moving portraits can be made of our friends with special needs.

I will be there tonight to show my support for this effort.
