After writing our last blog post with Bryce's Top 25 accomplishments for 2020, we thought it would be nice to invite some of our podcast listeners to share accomplishments of their children, plus goals for the new year.
We can vividly remember having to dig deep at the end of some years to find bright spots of progress that had been overshadowed with difficult behaviors and setbacks. It is so important for parents to take time to stop, reflect, and celebrate progression, no matter how big or small it may seem. Autism lasts for a lifetime in some way, shape, or form. Being able to help our children either jump hurdles or go through the trenches to reach another milestone is nothing to be taken lightly. It. is. hard. work!!
As you read these accomplishments, let's join in the celebration. In our world of autism, a win for one is a win for all - Rejoice! Dance! Shout "Hallelujah"! And let's keep on rockin' with our precious kiddos in 2021!

1. He adjusted without a hitch when he moved to another state.
2. He is doing so well in Kindergarten! He is writing sentences, numbers and even reading sight words.
3. He got invited to his first ever playdate at someone else's house, without mommy!
