(((HUGZ))) to all!
is it just me or does everyone now someone on the spectrum? When I was diagnosed over 20 years ago, hardly anyone we knew had autism, and higher functioning autism (like my Asperger's Syndrome) was not understood at all.
It's weird, I've felt for so long that I was all alone on the spectrum, but I'm coming to understand myself so much better reading what the regulars on the Special Needs thread are experiencing, and now to see so many posts from other members of WI, I wish I could hug you all!
Now considering the issues I have with other people being in my personal space, that says a lot!
There is a lot of research that suggests Autism is genetic. One reason we need to spread the word about Autism is so we can generate more money for research and discover what the cause truly is...environment, genetics, or some other factor.
My son has Autism and I tell him that his Autism is what makes him special. He is really good at things most kids his age aren't interested in yet. He knows more about animals (it seems like every single animal there is ) than most adults. He gets to take breaks at school and chew gum in his classroom because that helps him relax. These are all great qualities and perks he has that come from his Autism.
I'm sure you can relate to all this because you have special qualities that spring from your Autism also. I would love to hear what they are. When some one asks my son about Autism he says, "it's what makes me special"!
Thanks for posting and check out the Special Needs Thread, there's lots of other people there with Autism or other Special Needs to talk to!
I am posting here in honor of my nephew, Conor who is autistic...and very loved by our family. He was our million dollar baby! He was born with severe complications, and it resulted in his dianosis of Autism. Conor is thriving and doing well, he has learn some speech and goes to school. This from a little boy that could not respond or interact with people, food, animals...nothing. As a child would hold any rag doll and shake it to and fro rapidly. Was unable to speak...but finally started to learn to recognize things. He now understands who "gramma" is and "mom and dad, and sister". God bless this child and all families effected by this thing called Autism!
As the parent of an autistic child, I was honored to be able to post this story and bring forward KinzDiva's idea to raise awareness. Reading this comment thread has been truly moving to me. Thank you to everyone who has participated.
To answer the question asked earlier about funding -- right now, there are not any funds going to autism charities for this project. This is about awareness only.
Wow,I had no idea that it is autism awarenes month.There are kids at my school who have autism and I fell so bad for them sometimes.When we are in class you can sometimes hear them from the hallway.I wish i had a blue pet to adopt because i would definetly name it autism awareness.
