I crave information about autism. I am parent of a child with autism and I work closely with individuals and families living with this complex disorder.
I read a lot. I listen to parents. I seek to understand those who are diagnosed. My cup is not full. I am still learning.
There are so many different opinions, viewpoints, experiences, and perspectives that I must often remind myself that perception is reality. No two people with autism look alike. Nor do their experiences. So if I want to continue to learn and evolve, I need to keep an open mind so I can absorb the many facets of how autism affects us all.
