I Live Here I Give Here Invites Austin Families to Give Back on Amplify Austin Day

I Live Here I Give Here Invites Austin Families to Give Back on Amplify Austin Day
Volunteering fosters many desirable traits that all parents want their children to possess. However, many children wonder what’s going to be in it for them. How will it directly affect them and their well-being? Many organizations in and around Austin are at the forefront of answering this question and are giving children an incentive to participate in creating a culture of generosity in their community while also encouraging their entire family to join in.

Invitation for Businesses to Join Our Free "Support Local Schools Program"

Attention, local businesses owners!

We are happy to announce that we're going to roll out a new service free of charge for local businesses and invite you to participate in this program.

We are partnering with Parent Teacher Organizations (PTOs) of schools in the Austin area. As you may know, PTOs often seek fundraising support or donations for upcoming school events, such as raffle prizes, food and snacks, or other forms of donations. This is a great way for local businesses to give back to the community and, at the same time, to promote their products and services to families in the area.

Ways To Help Children With Autism Deal With A New School Year, New Teachers, New Peers, And New Experiences


For a parent of a child with autism, sending your child to the right school is important, but in itself, is not enough. Children with autism will continue to make their world smaller and smaller when left to their own devices. They would wear the same clothes every day, eat the same foods every day, watch the same programs on TV, or play the same games on their tablet.

Jeanne Beard, founder of the National Autism Academy, shares a few tips on how to help children with autism get a good start into the new school year and how to keep them going.

Does Your Child Have Difficulties Adjusting To School Or A New Environment?

Does your child have difficulties adjusting to school or being away from you? 

This is one of our favorite books: The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn that may help your child ease his or her fears. 

The book is "for any child who confronts a difficult situation, and for the child within each of us who sometimes needs reassurance." Perfect for first day of school or back-to-school.
