Proverbs 22:6 – Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old, he will not depart from it.
World Autism Awareness Day is April 2nd. Autism Spectrum Disorder is a complex developmental disorder with many different symptoms, behaviors and characteristics. It affects people in different ways and at varying degrees (from mild to severe). Since my son’s initial diagnosis over three years ago, I’ve learned a great deal about the spectrum, but there is still much to understand. With this post, I join many others worldwide by sharing some thoughts from personal experience in hopes of raising greater awareness, clarifying misconceptions and building more support.
Autism is not a processing error; it’s a different operating system.
The more we know, accept and embrace the individual, as well as the spectrum’s characteristics, the better we can support those who need it most. Thank you.
