I am not an artist but I really can't go a day without trying to create something and neither can my girls. I am getting much better at concentrating on the process rather than the product and I am doing research about sensory-friendly art projects. I was thinking I might have a little summer art camp for children with autism. I guess the details could be worked out later. Kate's therapy room might be the best place for it. Just a thought. Before Kate was born I had no idea how hard it was to find suitable entertainment for a child with sensory issues. The movies are too loud and too dark. The swimming pool is too crowded. The list goes on and on. I am working on the manager of the local theatres to offer sensory-friendly screenings. I am very open to suggestions of other ideas. I want Kate to have every opportunity. I am already getting tired of making alternate arrangements for Kate when we go somewhere that might be overwhelming to her. Anyway, I will keep you posted on any sensory-friendly events I find out about but for now I'll leave you with a completely unrelated but great song by The Cure. My song for Grace and Kate:
