It’s been nearly a month since I last updated this newsletter. The holidays and freelance work took priority for a little while. And now I have another excuse for not writing that Pulitzer Prize worthy newsletter.
A new project is going to occupy most of my time for the next two months. I’ll still write about autism and disability and school and transitions every Wednesday, but I won’t write a proper essay with a BIG POINT. That just takes up too much time and brain power. Instead, I’ll fill you in with what we’re doing with Ian that week and what I’ve learned about disability stuff. One draft, one hour.
I hope you stick around, but this newsletter will be very humble indeed until I tackle the big thingie.
So, what are we up to here?
One thought on “Valuing Essential Time: Changing Time for Work Responsibilities, Keeping Track of Ian Chores, and Not Thinking About Future Time”
I’m learning, which I always like.
I tried to find information in my state like the links you showed for NJ and failed. Which then left me wondering? Does my state also have a letter grade system to classify recipients with amounts clearly designated, Do we have a WACat? I did find a description that said that one qualifies with autism only if evidence before the age of 5 is provided.
And there’s a certain amount of cognitive dissonance of having the Frequently Asked Question being “If I have intellectual disability, how do I meet the definition of substantial limitations?” being answered with “Documentation of a FSIQ score more than 2 standard deviations below the mean as subject to three different WAC xxx-xxx-xxxx documents).
Documents that require special expertise on top of FSIQ’s probably not 2 SD below the mean, but with what I must call a pretense that “I” (the person with ID) will be looking up the information.
