It sounds like you have a lot to deal with. I am sure you know that autism can run in families. Does your school program provide an adaptive speech program? How good are they at indicating their needs via pictures or a communication…"
The most precious moments you will share with your children should be right before bed. Morning time families are rushing and bustling around for work and school. During the day families are separated by distance.
Home at last, work, school and activities done, dinner has been enjoyed and homework completed. Your children have had their baths, and are in their warm pajamas. Then comes a special time for your children, a time when “your” undivided attention, love and devotion are theirs alone. A time that they can count on, as a time in their day-(no matter what kind of day they have had,) that is filled with warmth, comfort, and reassurance through the nighttime ritual of cuddling closely with you and a book.

After Ike, we got back home around the end of October, just before Halloween. We have a 3 story historic home and had about 4 feet of water on our first floor. The first floor contains our garage (ie washer dryer, tools, lawn mower) and our office (ie computer equipment, personal files, furniture). It was such a mess. Our home is still not finished, but we have just been taking it a day at a time, trying not to get too frustrated. We were certainly luckier than some, so we are thankful for that.
Did you have any major damage from the trees?
Can you believe the power outages? Never thought I would ever experience anything like it.
