My name is Annie Campbell and 9 years ago my son was diagnosed with Autism. Over the years of treatments, therapies and schools (with my son) I have learned countless techniques for dealing with children with special needs. Through my experience in primary, I have come up with some specific tips to create a happy atmosphere in church.

Just keep swimming

Sorry about the long break between posts!  I started school for the summer semester and my nephew was recently diagnosed with reactive attachment disorder.  So it's been crazy at our house.  

What I wanted to talk about was something that happened yesterday at church.  I was waiting for my son to do the scripture in primary and an older man that teaches primary in our ward, came to me and said that the training I gave a couple months ago was the best training he's ever been to in all his years of religion.  He went on to say that it changed the way he taught and saw the kids.  WOW!  That's all I could say.  I hoped that it helped people look at things a little differently.  You just never know who your going to help. So, in the words of Dory from Finding Nemo, "just keep swimming".  Everyone can make a difference! 

Also, I just learned that the diagnosis of Autism/Aspergers/PDD-NOS will be changing.  Here's a link with more info!

Hope your summer's going well and let me know if there is anything I can do to help!

  1. Hi Annie! Maybe it is here and you can direct me to it, but I was wondering what your training is? I have 2 children with Autism and would love to have something to give teachers when they ask that every popular question: How do I teach/work with your child? I would love to know what some of your tricks are! Thanks!
