    Walt Disney World – Day 6 – Hollywood Studios – Hollywood & Vine Character Breakfast

    Our ADR wasn’t so early this morning as we could only get an 8.30am time so I was expecting Hollywood & Vine to be packed but we were pleasantly surprised. We still had an early start though as we had to use the Disney buses and looking back at the pictures and video we took I can now see how tired Ethan was so I know we left the Halloween party at the right time the night before. We didn’t have to wait long for the bus and when we arrived at Hollywood Studios we were let straight in. It was completely empty and very quiet so we took a few photos and then…

    Making Friends In Walt Disney World

    I was able to make enough space on our computer so that I can finally share with you the video of Ethan making lots of friends in Walt Disney World. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed taking Ethan to meet all of the wonderful characters…

    Something Special Pairs Game

    For those of you unaware Something Special is a show on CBeebies, it’s hosted by Justin Fletcher and Mr Tumble. The series is created for kids with special needs and they use Makaton sing language throughout the show.

I had to buy them as the cards also have the Makaton signs on them and I thought what a perfect game for Ethan. …

    Routine?

    Over and over again I have been told that autistic children thrive on routine and I know that when Ethan was a baby he set his own feeding routine and we happily followed it but I have always thought we are more organised chaos than strict routine. I also feel Ethan is quite happy to take things in his stride as he has always managed well in all of the new situations we have put him in. It’s the little things that happen that make me realise yes Ethan does follow a routine, not a strict routine but he likes things done in a certain way. I was made aware of one…

    Moving Up…

    At Ethan’s swimming lesson today we were told the following magical words… Ethan is ready to move up to the next group!   I couldn’t believe it, I feel like I have been waiting to move up to the next class for ages as we have seen so many other toddlers come and go.  So after Easter we will be in the next age group. This means that our swimming lessons will now be in the leisure pool and not in the teaching pool I will therefore have to swim with Ethan as I’m too short to stand on the bottom of the swimming pool. This will be a challenge for both of us…
