It’s ADHD Awareness Month and on the weekend I was honoured to be the Master Of Ceremonies at the official book launch for Beyond The ADHD Label written by Paula Burgess and published by MJL Publications.
If you or someone you know is living with ADHD please check out this upcoming 2 Day conference hosted by Paula Burgess which has been significantly discounted in celebration of the successful launch of her book.
Randa Habelrih was given the opportunity to talk about her School MATES program on Channel 9’s Today Extra yesterday (confusing isn’t it) and her message has resonated with so many people that the video has gone viral.
Randa is doing wonderful work for children on the spectrum and her message is clear. She wants people to take awareness to a new level that practically facilitates INCLUSION for people on the spectrum and she has created a simply program called School MATES that will show people how to do that in schools.
What a week for MJL Publications with authors featuring in two separate stories in this week’s Redcliffe Herald.
First we have the article about the launch of Parenting A Child On The Spectrum featuring Leah Adams, Paula Burgess and Deborah Fay.
The launch will be held at Redcliffe Library this Saturday 30th April starting at 2.30pm followed by the lighting of the Victoria Bridge for the second time to mark the official launch and to wind up Autism Awareness Month.

There was also an article featuring MJL Publications Author Marney Perna who is doing amazing work in the community in her role as President of the Soroptimists International Moreton North Inc. (SIMNI).
Congratulations on all the worthwhile work you do Marney. We are very proud of you.

Each of the authors who have contributed to Parenting A Child On The Spectrum are doing amazing things for others in the Autism community.
Randa Habelrih made the news this week for her peer-based social inclusion program, School Mates, which aims to assist students who might feel excluded at school.
Three Sydney schools are participating in a pilot of School Mates and Randa has explained how the program would help give students with autism a sense of belonging and make them feel more settled at school.

Randa also talks about the program in our podcast on A League Of Their Own:

The lighting up of the Victoria Bridge for the launch of Paren…Last night was such a wonderful experience for me and my contributing authors, with the lighting of the Victoria Bridge for the Launch of our book “Parenting on a child on the Spectrum”. I really wanted to capture the excitement in a short video for all our amazing authors, friends and family that couldn’t be with us.
Paula, her son Jesse and their therapy dog River all made the paper today in three states. Paula writes the story “Expelled from Daycare” in the book Parenting A Child On The Spectrum and has a very interesting story to tell.
I was researching the number of famous authors who had started their writing careers by self-publishing and I was astounded by how many big name authors had been rejected by publishers before their careers kicked off.
There are some huge names in this BuzzFeed Community article:
The thing I liked most about reading about those authors, was the fact that they obviously believed enough in themselves to keep going, and to keep putting themselves out there until they achieved what they set out to achieve – to become published authors.
I so admire their tenacity and their stick-to-it-iveness.
If we don’t believe in ourselves, who will?

Yes, I'm really connecting with '6 Keys to Happiness', and I think that's for two reasons: the content makes so much darn sense and I really understand your writing style.
