If you have a family member who is newly diagnosed and you have found your way to this hub: WELCOME
Prepare to let go of what you thought Autism was.
We encourage you to celebrate your Autistic family member.
My daughter encourages me to share. She is the inspiration and support for the work I do. When I’d rather stay home and watch Bravo she sends me out into the world to teach people. I love the word “autistic”the way I love words like “creativity” and “sunshine”. It conjures images of beauty to me. My daughter tells me how challenging things can be on the spectrum. When your body and actions don’t mimic what you are thinking you are often misunderstood. If you lack access to communication you can be overwhelmed with isolation. She also explains to me that with support, understanding, modifications and INCLUSION life is full and wonderful. I’m not autistic and limited by my neurotypical brain. However, I will march with the community toward their human rights being protected. Autism Acceptance is for every month, every hour, every minute, every second of life on this glorious planet. The God of Heaven invited us ALL to this party. So please make room at the table for some of the coolest people He ever created. ✌🏻
