Two young students with autism find enjoyment in reading picture books.
Working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders has changed my perspective on teaching, student engagement and patience.
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) “are a cluster of developmental disorders characterized by social-interaction difficulties, communication challenges and a tendency to engage in repetitive behaviors. However, symptoms and their severity vary widely across these three core areas.” (Symptoms of ASD can be found in the Autism Speaks Website here.)
Lovely Norfolk Botanical Garden boosts of magnificent trees and colorful flowering shrubs.
The Rule of Thirds is a photography concept that puts the subject of the photograph off-center.
This photo was taken at the Norfolk Botanical Garden in Virginia Beach, Virginia USA last May 2014. Beauty was everywhere and everywhere was beauty!
I can still feel the crisp, morning air and remember the scents and sounds that came with just enjoying that moment. I’ve never seen such abundance of exploding colors, it hurt my eyes. Kudos to our Creator who made everything for our enjoyment.
The intricacy of every floral design as well as the woodwork of the trees, made me appreciate the joy that our Lord must have felt in the creative process.
It’s all good!
