April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day. Having a young child, my family has come across many children on the Autism Spectrum in our school system. Everything from children needing to be tube fed and wheelchair bound, to those that have sensory sensitivities, to those that are absolutely brilliant. Some can hardly speak, while others are reading Shakespeare at 6 years old. We have witnessed the entire spectrum in our very small corner of the world.
I don’t pretend to know so much about Autism. I try to be supportive and understanding of the children and their parents. I know that every day can be struggle. We all need to be a little less judgmental, and a little more patient.
Be kind, everyone. Please enjoy this blue puzzle piece fabric in honor of World Autism Awareness Day, 2019.
