What Is Your Superpower?

The #ASDNext Logo featuring that text in handwritten scrawl across a blue background boxToday we want to highlight another #ASDNext blog post. What's Your Superpower? Is a brief post by blogger Sarah Matincheck where she talks about how she uses her superpowers to look on the bright side of things during COVID-19. She says we all have superpowers that help us cope with what is going on in the world. So,  what is your superpower? 

#ASDNext is an initiative of the Autism Services, Education, Resources and Training (ASERT) Collaborative.  #ASDNext was conceived to help fill the growing need for resources and support to help teens and young adults with autism transition to “adult” life after school.  

The #ASDnext website has a variety of great resources including blogs by individuals on the spectrum. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, several blogs have been posted related to individual experiences and ways to cope with the changes related to social/physical distancing and PA’s stay at home order.  Sometimes it is helpful to hear the stories of others who you relate to and this may be true for an individual you support so be sure to direct them to #ASDNext.
