If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, you know I’m the mother to two children with autism spectrum disorders. My boys are nineteen and sixteen. Over the years, I have supported numerous advocacy groups and delivered evidence-based information at conferences and seminars across the US. My six books sell across the world and I’m happy to help others. Please see my free resources page here.
I have a HUGE QUESTION for my fellow caregivers……..WHAT HAS YOUR ADVOCACY ORGANIZATION DONE FOR YOU?
I am asking to gauge the current climate and state of the autism community. I LOVE awareness and am thankful for the fact that practically everyone knows what autism is. My sons can proudly announce they are autistic individuals now! It’s wonderful. I noticed in April, Autism Awareness Month, that many people became irritated when I posted autism awareness materials and other facts. My readers told me, “We want acceptance and education for our family.” Is that your opinion also? What’s the best advocacy group? From where do you receive your primary support?
Please comment and share so I can continue to help my friends, followers, and readers. We are all in this together!
