I was so touched to read this article this morning on WI about autism awareness as I am the proud mother of a beautiful girl who suffers from autism. And I prefer to speak of her affliction in this manner as opposed to labeling her 'autistic'. The term 'autistic child' puts the disorder before the child. I prefer to put the child before the disorder in much the same way that we refer to children suffering from cancer. Thanks WI for including them in the Webkinz world as they deserve inclusion everywhere!
That's a very good point. It's called "people first language".
Rather than saying an "autistic child" you say a "child with autism".
You don't have to adopt a blue pet, you can adopt ANY pet of ANY color and name it Autism Awareness or something else cute with Autism in the name. My kiddo wasn't thrilled about naming a pet Autism Awareness, and we didn't have a blue pet to adopt for his account, but we did name have a Lion that we adopted as AUTISTIC ACE!
Ok,thanks i may come up with something like that for the spotted seal like patchwork autistic.
I am now proud owner of Autism Awareness, a rhino. I always thought it was kind of silly looking, but now I am happy to have a pale blue spiky-furred rhino. Maybe he'll help others remember to be patient, kind and understanding of those who are different. My son can't play on the computer yet, but he can play with the plush guy. Happy Saturday everyone.
I think this is great. I coach tee ball and soccer. I try to get at least one player on my teams every year with special needs. I have had a child with as-burgers and adhd. It is not about their special needs it is about finding that little open door and walking through it. They are special, special in the way they see things and the way they learn. Once they have something down there is no stopping them.
wait a minute doesn't the new kids theme have the colors red,yellow and blue the colors of autism and has a rug with puzzle pieces on it like the design on the autism ribbon maybe we could also make special autism rooms with the new kids theme!Just an idea.
