So , Donna , I know you hear this all of the time.... But Dustin & I would like to Thank You with all of our Heart.
We also would like to say Thank You to the Nickelodeon Hotel. Everyone there was so unbelievably kind and understanding to us. We intend on going back for Dustin's 19th Birthday not only because Dustin loves Nickelodeon, but because Autism is clearly Welcomed here :)

"An Autism Mini-Moment Success Video ! Brought to you by, S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom

S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom shares a moment with her S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom Sisters; a moment that most people take for granted, but not if you're a Mom who has a child, teen, or adult with Autism.

 I hope this gives some of my moms out there who can relate to these videos  this message:
" Hang in There. Be Patient. When you least expect it, EXPECT IT "

My Singing & Dancing Dustin Video :) Another S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom Mini-Moment

Had a great visit with our family, but I think Dustin was getting a little too excited the day he knew we were going home :) (LOL) I caught him singing and dancing just in time too......Love you Sweetie !

    I don't think he was happy about getting caught on video, but seeing him in this light and even more to see him have "any" type of reaction like embarrassment was, well ,  I'm sorry kinda cool for this mom :)  If your a mom like me that is walking in those shoes of Autism.....I'm certain you know what I mean :) Isn't he Adorable :)

"P.O.A ? Guardianship ? The Alternative 101 Video": S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom's (OCT.) Mommy Time-Out Need to Know Video

(Strong Mothers Altering Autism's Reality Together)

I am so happy you are here to watch this month's very informative video.I wanted to bring this to all of you last month, however, I injured my ankle and posted a different video in it's place. Of course, also informative:) This month I really hope you will share this video with mothers living with autism and other developmental disabilities such as Mental Retardation, Cerebral  Palsy, 
Prader- Willi Syndrome, and Spina Bifida.  I know you will not only find this video to be comforting, but it will certainly save you big dollars as well. So if that didn't intrigue you....lets not wait another moment to find out what my alternatives are regarding a Power of Attorney or Guardianship, which is needed when your special child turns 18 years old.
S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom has found the "Alternative" just for YOU! Please don't forget to share this and please be sure to read below FINAL IMPORTANT  NOTE:


                       (Click on the Court Room  Below to Watch the Video)

FINAL IMPORTANT  NOTE(Be sure to read this!)  

>Form I: The Initial Plan & Form K. - Order Approving Initial Guardianship Plan of Advocate 
  It needs to be filled out and submitted 60 DAYS AFTER the date that is stated on your ACTUAL Guardianship Advocate Forms which was stamped by the judge in her chambers. As for the date on the Initial Form. My Guardianship Advocate documents are dated on August 20, 2014. Therefore, on the (I) Form , the date would be from August 20, 2014- August 19, 2015. FYI: There is no cost for this filing process.

> What happens ONE  YEAR  after I have become my son/daughter's Guardian Advocate?
Time to fill out FORM J : The Annual Plan and  FORM I . This is just to keep everything updated with the county.

>Form J: The Annual Plan & Form L. - Order Approving Annual Guardianship Plan of Advocate  Needs to be filled out and submitted EVERY  YEAR. So don't misplace the case number on your documents. This is your son/daughter's assigned number. You will need it every year when you fill out Form J. 
How to date the Annual Form ?....My Guardian Advocate Document was dated August 20, 2015. So on my "Annual Form" I will date it: August 20, 2015 to August 19, 2016. In addition, you will need to attach a current doctor's report along with Form J. 
Here is a Re-visable form for you to give your son/daughter's doctor to fill out : 
Again, there is no cost to do this filing process. Lastly, You can either bring this form to the court house in person or send it in by mail. Just remember, Form J is a form you will have to file every year. The court house will not send you this form in the mail or give you any reminders to have the annual form re-submitted. This is YOUR responsibility. So mark your calendar every year to renew (FORM J) .

2016' UPDATE! Yeah! I noticed that the clerks office updated their site for us :) 
If you are located in Lake County Florida...you can now get the forms you need for becoming a "Guardian Advocate" without having to revise forms from other counties like I had to . So Click on Dustin & I below to get your forms directly :) 
                                      (Click on Pic to get Forms in Lake County, Fl)

Lake County Florida now has forms available for Guardian Advocacy !!! Yeah!

Kids Home Depot Workshop in Orange City: S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom and Son (18yrs) are Going. Come Join Us!

I called a head and informed Home Depot of Dustin's age and that he had autism. The age range for the kids shop is 5-12. Of course Dustin is 18 now, but still has the mind of 5 or 6yr old. The lady there was so sweet and said that it was not a problem. She thought it was great that I was wanting to bring him to the workshop:) He may not be in school any longer, but that doesn't mean I will stop trying to teach him something new and to continue working on his social skills. Feel free to join us Oct. 4th. It is FREE , but you do have to register FYI. Maybe this Home Depot isn't near you, if that's the case I still want to encourage you to contact a store near you. Check out their Kids Workshops to see their calendar dates and bring your special son/daughter :)

UPDATE: Today is October 4, 2014. What a wonderful time we had! Dustin did great and the other
families there, with of course much younger children, were so friendly to us.They were absolutely sweet as can be. That's always a plus :) Unfortunately, I was disappointed in the employees of the workshop.
I was of course on crutches still because of the ligaments I pulled in my ankle , so in light of that, it would have been nice to have been offered a chair, stool, box.....sorry standing for almost an hour like that was not too comfortable. But I love my Dustin and endured the discomfort. I was a bit surprised that everyone was expected to stand for and hour or more? And what about those pregnant moms, that's a long time, you know? Then of course as you all can see ...Dustin is wearing a child's apron (LOL) Kind of expected that considering it's a kids workshop and Dustin is 18yr old now. However, I did call a head and we were the only ones like us there. And  clearly we were an unexpected guest. I know they have bigger aprons. But I guess one larger apron was being unreasonable and I didn't ask for one, hoping after seeing him in a smaller one, that just maybe Dustin would be offered a larger apron :(  I guess being a business owner myself I was  overall pleased with Home Depot's workshop itself and the crafts offered for free . It just would be nice if those little acts of kindness which mean a lot to me; well  there was none of that with any of the employees handling the workshop. Lastly, kind of puzzling, why did I register him online and have to do it again when we got there? I try to do things in advance because I know that with Dustin I have to get right to things once he's been informed of what we are doing before hand. So to have to (on crutches) fill out another registration form, I mean , REALLY? Any way, like I said, little acts of kindness mean a lot to me. Next week we're going to Lowes. I wonder how they will be in comparison with Home Depot now ? I guess I'll let you all know then :)  BIG HUGS S.M.A.A.R.T.Moms!!!

P.S. Dustin built this using wood,nails,hammer,paint, and stickers!

"Autism & Dental SURGERY Video " : S.M.A.A.R.T. Mom's (Sept) 2014' Mommy & Me Time-Out Video

S.M.A.A.R.T. Mom
(Strong Mothers Altering Autism's Reality Together)

Welcome back and Thanks for joining me once again. This was actually a video I intended on posting much earlier rather than now. However, I was more compelled to post The Prom, Graduation, and 18th Birthday Videos at that time. Unfortunately I've injured my ankle pretty good and the video I originally planned for everyone to watch will have to be post poned for a month or two. So in the mean time I do have some other insightful videos to view. I hope this video will be helpful to my moms out there that have wondered about future dental surgeries and autism. As always I'm here to bring you answers to your questions. Everyone out there I'm sure agrees that getting a molar pulled is far from joyful. But what about getting all four of them pulled AND the patient has Autism and is your son/daughter. You don't want to miss this very informative video S.M.A.A.R.T.Moms! I hope this helps you, like it has for me:)

My Son/Daughter is Turning 18yrs. old. Take the S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom Poll:

S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom Poll:

Many parents of children with Autism assume that they are automatically the guardian for their child, even though their child is Turning 18 years old or older than age 18. That just isn't the case, however. To establish guardianship it is necessary to petition the court and obtain a court order. 

(A) Yes. I knew this and the Process took over 6 months.

(B) No I didn't know this, I just assumed. I mean he/she is my biological child,

(C) Yes. I Knew and the cost to become a Guardian was Over $1500.

(D) No, I thought I could get a Power of Attorney & Medical Proxy.

(E) Yes. I knew and YES to (A) and (C). Just so you know MOMs!

(F) No. I didn't know that and Do I really Care ? Should I Care?

Want to add your Vote? Go to : S.M.A.A.R.T. Mom@Facebook.com

 I know this is the case in Florida. As for my son, he is unable to work and has just turned 18yrs. old. Although, anyone who keeps up with my S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom videos may like to know.....Hint Hint, I have found an "Alternative" for some of those moms out there, IF their state has similar statutes as Florida regarding guardianship for autistic s 18 or older  Keep a look out for September's video Ladies.....YOU don't want to miss this very informative and NEED TO KNOW video ! It will SAVE you $$$$, TIME, AND EASE that Anxiety and Stress that you will feel once you are aware of this; I know this stressed me out !
It never ceases to amaze me how our government says they are looking out for the well-being of our children and in this case our "Handicapped" children that for the majority have been this way since they were born or for 98% of their lives. Children who for example have Mental Retardation, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Prader-Willi Syndrome, and of course Autism , It just really strikes a nerve for me especially because 'I AM"  a mother that as lost her son to Autism at the young age of 13months. My whole mission in life after this devistating diagnosis was given  was to help my son the BEST I could and love him unconditionally. HE'S MY SON! So in light of that alone I can't help to feel like I am being condemned rather than being commended for EXPECTING AND WANTING to be there for my son "AFTER"  he is considered an ADULT by law > When in fact he is more like a 5 year old if not younger in other areas. When I found out about the ridiculous expectation and "Protocal by Law" that ALL parents even  biological parents at that and the most absurd hurdles we HAD to go through just to "BY LAW" be able to continue to care for our special autistic son/daughter or other disability, OMG!  As if living with Autism hasn't been heart-breaking and frustrating enough for the past 17yrs years! 

S.M.A.A.R.T.Moms out there! With all of My Heart  I really hope this next video helps some of you like it has me  BIG BIG HUGS !

"It's Never Too Late To Roller Skate Video" :S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom's (MARCH) 2014' Online Mommy Time-Out Video

S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom  (Strong Mothers Altering Autism's Reality Together)

This Month :         "It's Never Too Late To Roller Skate"

Hello S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom's !
  This month I finally felt that my 17yr old son with autism was ready to venture in to a Roller Skating Rink. When he was younger there were many sensory issues with Dustin. He was Extremely sensitive to Loud sounds, lights, and especially a crowd of people. I still made attempts to venture in to other places I felt he could handle; however, as he has grown older his sensory issues have minimized quite a bit. I'm certain that he has improved primarily to his therapies, repetition, determination, and of course with love. So on that note; I've decided that it was time to venture in to a Roller Skating Rink for the FIRST Time :) Not sure what to expect considering this is a NEW place to Dustin. So I hope you enjoy this month's video & Remember this is not just a first for you, but a first for Dustin & S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom as well. Wish Me Luck!
Until Next Month.......BIG HUGS

A Special Autism Graduation Video! S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom's (JUNE) Autistic Son's Graduation Delivery ? ! " A MUST SEE VIDEO"

(Strong Mother's Altering Autism's Reality Together)

Welcome Back S.M.A.A.R.T.Moms! I'm so glad you're here to share this very special moment today. Life with autism can be difficult to live with. Since our son, Dustin was about 15mos (when he was diagnosed with autism) we knew our lives were going to be full of ups and downs. However, looking back when he was NOT verbal, we really weren't sure what was in store for his future. Would he be able to speak again? Show affection? Learn? Go to Prom? Or even to Graduate? If this is what you are going through Right Now....Feeling these Emotions and Asking Those Questions about OWN Child with Autism......This video is something S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom really wanted to bring to YOU Especially :) 
So from S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom's Heart to ALL of Those Moms, Dads, and Family members who need just a glimmer of "Hope", Here's a BIG HUG & Hats Off to You for being there Unconditionally for that Special Someone YOU Love with Autism. 
Enjoy S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom's Special 2014' Graduation Video ! Take Care & Be Inspired !

"Dustin is Going To Prom !" I'm Too Excited to Stay Calm!" :S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom's (MAY) 2014' Mother's Day Video Special

(Strong Mother's Altering Autism's Reality Together)

Hello S.M.A.A.R.T.Moms!
      So glad you could join us this month. May is all about Moms, but this time it's not just for this mom, but for our son Dustin who has autism. He is getting ready to Graduate from school and about to experience his "First" Prom Dance !  As a mom of a soon to be adult with autism this Prom is so much more special than I think some parents take for granted. For me, going to Prom with my older children was a wonderful experience. However, with our youngest Dustin; Autism made just the idea of "Prom" uncertain. So because of that I had to share this moment with all of my Sister  S.M.A.A.R.T.Moms. This month's lesson.....Never feel Uncertain of your child with autism. Instead follow my lead and make the seemingly Impossible....."Positively Possible"
 BIG HUGS to Everyone & Have A  Very Magical Mother's Day !  :)

                         (Strong Mothers Altering Autism's Reality Together)

Hello S.M.A.A.R.T.Moms!

With April being Autism Awareness Month and right around the corner...
I just had to bring you all this early (April)  Mommy Time-Out Online Video Special :)

What a wonderful day to have a Mommy & Me Time-Out Gathering. I wasn't planning on making a video while at the gathering, but after all of the AMAZING things I saw Dustin (autistic) do that was not typical, I HAD to tape this to share with other moms like myself. I've had Dustin in occupational & speech therapy since he was 2yrs. and have been working on his fears of ladders, crossing rope bridges, and just interacting with others. Well to my surprise, a simple visit to the park helped in the success of overcoming Dustin's fears.Not that I've never taken him to the park before, but sometimes, some days are much better than others.....This was "THAT" day (LOL).  I hope this inspires you and makes you Smile like it did us :) Enjoy ! BIG HUGS! S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom

"An Autism Unexpected Circus Surprise Video!" :S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom (FEB) 2014' Online Mommy Time-Out Video

S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom      (Strong Mothers Altering Autism's Realty Together)

This Month:
"A Valentine's Day That Brings "Good" Cries. What an Unexpected Circus Surprise!"

Welcome Back S.M.A.A.R.T.Moms!
This month once again I want to share with you a very special moment with all of you.
 I hope to inspire and encourage you to at least TRY and take your loved one with autism out in to "Public" places. As a mom myself who has a son who is almost 18 yrs. old with autism , I know first hand how difficult this can be. I know that it is much easier to "Isolate" ourselves from going in to public places because of the misguided people, the stares, and especially the fear of a melt-down occurring. It doesn't have to be this way. Moms & Dads I want to help you live your life again. There isn't an Anchor attached to Autism. There are alternatives. I hope that with the videos I create solely for those families walking in my shoes....I hope it will help you in some way, to lift you up, to give you a positive outlook on autism, or at the very least bring a Smile to your day.
Be Strong , Be Patient, & KNOW you always have a Friend called S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom :)
BIG HUGS & Take Care!

Autism? "It's all about Christmas Video" :S.M.A.A.R.T. Mom's (Dec.) 2013' Online Christmas Mommy & Me Time-Out

Happy Holidays S M A A R T Moms!

It's been a very busy time for me, so please bare with me on my video postings. I just had to share my Christmas morning with all of you.  Dustin our  17yr son who has autism  always has theses unexpected responses which especially  seem to come out every holiday. He's had his Christmas list since August and is really hoping to get his "NOW Christmas Music" CD. We've  been hearing him recite the commercial for the past couple of months (LOL) His memory is just astounding :) So this month "It's All About Christmas."

P.S. Stay tuned for my January 2014' Online Mommy Time-Out Video. I have a very special video regarding my September 2013' Introduction to my Autism Welcomed video. Not too mention an unusual idea I  put in to motion to stop my son from crossing the FOUL Line at the bowling ally. After finding success, I  just had to share it with all of  my S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom Friends  :)
