simplicityredesignThis is what autism awareness looks like in my home. A bright, amazing 7 yr old.
I do not light my home blue during April. I do NOT support Autism Speaks. I support my child that is on the spectrum. I will support any other child or adult that I meet on the spectrum. I will move Heaven and Hell to help my child navigate into our world while I learn to navigate into hers.
I do not believe that autism needs to be cured, that the person on the spectrum needs to sterilized, ignored, or that a pregnancy needs to be determinated if the autism gene is found present. All of these things and more are what Autism Speaks has been all about for many yrs. Do your research before donating or jumping on a bandwagon of a charity.
Something to think about this month as many will begin sharing autism awareness things and donating to various charities in the name of autism.
