This is the first in my attempt to do the A to Z Blogging Challenge. Twenty-six days, twenty-six entries, one for each letter of the alphabet.

As April is Autism Awareness Month, I can see no way around starting off with an "awareness' blog.

At this point in time, I do believe that anyone who has access to communications is "aware" of the existence of autism. Overall, I find people to be quite kind when they learn my granddaughter is on the spectrum. Seems that everyone has someone they know who has been touched by this disorder.

This site,, will give you milestones your child ought to be reaching at certain ages. EARLY intervention is so very important to your child's development.

Awareness isn't just knowing that something exists; it is knowing about and dealing with the disorder as early as possible Did I say that already? I guess I really mean it!

Personally, I knew something was going on with my grandbaby before her first birthday. I still kick myself for not saying somethibng to my daughter sooner than I did. Better to be cautious than sorry.

Any questions? Looking forward to visiting and getting to know some of you. gail


  1. Hi Gail, Wow, Love the idea and the challenge of blogging from A to Z... Pondering if I should take part, hmmm.

    Since falling in love with photography I have become very aware of things around me, that I may have other wise missed.

    So, how are you? I just started back to blogging after a short but much needed break.

    You can find me here... if you'd like to pop in and say hello or join my new site.

    Anyway, can't wait to see what you come up with for B,C,D.... etc.

    Hope the week ahead is especially good.

    Kingdom Blessings!

  2. Hey Gail!

    Great post! It's a great way to honor your granddaughter as well.

    Those Autism commercials are so powerful and a great tool of bringing awareness to Autism. However, you are's about moving from awareness to action!

  3. Lovely "A" posts. Don't feel bad about not saying anything to your daughter earlier. You're dealing with it now and that's good.

    Stopping in via the A-Z blogging challenge.

  4. This was a great post. I think there needs to be a lot of awareness when it comes to things like autism.
