There are billions of people living on this earth. Each person is unique in their own specific way. Whether that may be, eye color, religion, beliefs, hobbies, etc.
Did you know that, 1 in 49 boys and 1 in 189 girls, will be diagnosed with being on the Autism Spectrum?
Having Autism can be a beautiful thing. As long as you see the unique beauty in each individual.
Autism is characterized as being on a spectrum. There are so many characteristics and strengths that differ in each person.
“When you’ve met one person with Autism, you’ve met ONE person with Autism”
My goal is to spread awareness. To gain an understanding of what Autism is. For the world to learn and accept people with Autism.
Those children, teen, and adults do not expect society to mold to them. But that doesn’t mean, society cannot accept them, and help them be the independent individuals they deserve to be.
I was introduced to the Autism Spectrum when I was 17. I don’t know why I was chosen, but I am sure glad I was! I had no idea the impact it would have on my life. From then on, I realized I want to work with these kiddos as my chosen life career.
I worked in school districts, primarily dealing with the lower functioning side of Autism. I’ve been able to work with an ABA Therapeutic Company for three years and was wonderful!
I’ve learned how to help problematic behaviors, coping strategies, teaching methods, and much more! I’ve helped kiddos feel that their voice matters, and how to properly communicate their needs (even non-verbal!)
So please, bear with me, as I continue to set up my Autism Awareness page and give more advice and information for our friends on the spectrum.
