"You can't punish a child who is acting out because of sensory overload." So many people don't understand this concept - fair enough, perhaps you've never had to deal with it, but please don't assume it's bad behaviour or bad parenting.
Sometimes with Autism it is easy to feel like you're a freak. You are a very special person who just thinks and does stuff a little differently. You see things differently and that is a gift. You're a very gifted person! Embrace it!
My child is NOT a statistic, NOT a number, NOT a diagnosis, but a person with different abilities taking on a difficult world. She proves everyday that she's a miracle & that she will never ever give up. I am her voice & she is my heart.
