A Nowruz wish for families with special needs
In this season of spring, we want to share a special family and community Nowruz wish, for health, happiness, peaceful times, and all the best that you wish for yourself and your family. To live in harmony and protect our environment and mother earth, let us be compassionate, embrace peace and prosperity for all, help those in need, protect women who symbolize life and freedom, and allow Nowruz to bring joy to our lives.
This is also a time for new resolutions. We believe in making positive and healthy choices this spring, and to start the year off on the right foot, we came up with a few easy steps to try out as parents and children or adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other neurodevelopmental disorders:
- Act now if you or your child needs help with developmental milestones, by reaching out to us. At Senses Cultural, we offer free programs, podcasts and educational webinars on ASD and neurodevelopmental disorders, and we can help connect you with local and community resources, educators, physicians and experts working on the topic. Remember, there are plenty of resources to help you, and if you are a refugee, a migrant, or Persian-speaking, we have the resources to help you.
- Prepare your home to enhance the safety around you. By making your home safe and secure, you and your child can stay out of harm, and by making it peaceful, you can reduce unnecessary stimulants.
- Stay happy by joining a community of likeminded people who can have a positive impact on you and your family, and get rid of stress as much as possible. Follow our podcasts too, because our team of educators and psychologists offer tips on how to build a positive life.
- Engage in our Art for Autism programs, or in art programs in your local communities. Art, along with certain sports, create positive and meaningful lives. Find your child’s interests, connect through the arts with your family, and find art programs that you can work with to promote belonging to a group of likeminded individuals.
