News stories don't always strike the right balance when it comes to reporting that involves a kid with autism. This news story about a baking teenager does.
When things go wrong, moms of kids with autism don't want any judgmental looks or unhelpful advice. A little kindness goes a long way.
It’s the first day back to school and you, the autism parent, are simultaneously thrilled that summer vacation is finally over (if we’re being honest!) and wracked with anxiety over how it’s going with your child.
With a lot of effort, and the right teaching tools, kids on the autism spectrum have the ability to learn and grow and make progress. It’s exciting just how much parents can make a difference in this progress.
A moment of kindness from a parent on the playground changed an awful moment into something bearable, even funny. And for that, I thank them. Parents of non-"typical" kids need that kind of support.
