Sobre Jesus:

Carregou um peso que era meu 
Morreu para que eu pudesse sonhar
Ficou sem ninguém para eu ter alguém
Como não o amar?



I hear the “Human CentiPAD” was a horrible episode, but…



Autism and Speech Therapy

Autism and Speech Therapy

Autism, also known as autism spectrum disorder or ASD, is a developmental disability. The autism spectrum is broad; the disorder can range anywhere from very mild to extremely severe. Patients with autism tend to have social, communication, and language problems. Symptoms vary based on individual differences, but there are many common social, communication, and language skills in which autism patients lack. The following are some social skills that may be difficult for someone with autism:

  • Joint attention

  • Play and share with others

  • Understand feelings

  • Form and maintain relationships

Autism doesn’t only affect the social aspect of communication, but the verbal and non-verbal aspects as well. The following are some verbal and non-verbal communication skills that an autistic person might have trouble with:

Speech (verbal communication) problems:

  • Unable to talk

  • Consistent babbling

  • Echolalia

  • Speak in a sing-song manner

  • Tantrums/harsh sounds, such as cries and shrieks.

  • Difficulty with tone of voice

Communication problems:

  • Lack of conversational skills, such as eye contact and gesturing

  • Memorization without comprehension

  • Difficulty having a conversation

  • Hyperlexia (ability to read without understanding meaning)

  • Reliance on echolalia

  • Difficulty learning to read and write

Speech-language pathologists play a very important role in treating autism. The SLP looks for the best ways to improve communication by working closely with the patient, family, school, friends, and other professionals. If someone with autism is not verbal or has a very hard time with speech, the SLP may introduce alternatives to speech. Some of these techniques include:

  • Signing or typing

  • Use of picture boards or electronic devices (AAC)

  • Exercising lips and facial muscles to improve articulation

Autism Speaks is a wonderful organization that raises money for Autism research and awareness. Check out Through The Years Speech Therapy’s blog writer and intern at their annual walk:

get your lips plump without injections

These tools are a temporary and effective way of plumping your lips.

Basically, you can choose which tool you want and which would best suit you and your lips. These tools are used as suctions that plump your lips temporarily. It is recommended that you exfoliate and moisturise your lips and lip area first to allow better movement and blood flow. Then place your desired tool on your lips and start sucking (sounds funny but it works) you should feel tugging your lips and slight tingling. Leave it there for 10-15 seconds or however long you’d like. (Don’t suck too hard or for too long because it can bruise around your mouth!) 

You have to get used to using these and know how to do it properly. After a couple of tries, I certainly noticed a difference. My lips are much more pouty and feel more full. Although, it really doesn’t last too long unfortunately, but I guess that depends on how long and hard you apply these tools. I like to use the gloss right after I finish with the tools to have that beautiful plump finish.

The three different types of tools are:

  • small oval: for thing lips and targeting. (try it vertically also)
  • medium oval: for smaller, overall mouth size, single or both lips
  • large round: for fuller mouths and overall mouth fullness, both lips

My favourite is the medium oval; I see the best results from this one!

I totally recommend you guys check the products and try them out! You can buy the three tools separately, in a pair, or all three here. I also received a lip plumping gloss which mine is in pink orchid, you can get the glosses here. It also comes with a lip exfoliating brush, which is like a mini tooth brush.

I am a little bit of loneliness a little bit of disregard
Handful of complaints but I can’t help the fact that everyone can see these scars
I am what I want you to want what I want you to feel
But it’s like no matter what I do, I can’t convince you, to just believe this is real
So I let go, watching you, turn your back like you always do
Face away and pretend that I’m not
But I’ll be here ‘cause you’re all that I got
