Take 5 minutes and read about what autism / autism spectrum disorder is, here.
You know this one hits close to home, both my niece and nephew are on the spectrum.
Learn more about what it’s like to have sensory and verbal challenges and then when you’re out and about and see a child who is different, or acting out in a way that you don’t think is “normal”… stop.
Smile at the parent.
Smile at the child.
And teach your child that all people are different and that’s totally ok.
This is one of my favorite blogs: Life on the Other Side of the Wall. The author, Aaron Likens, has autism.
Read his perspective. Make it a favorite.
