THIS is what we should be talking about. Not lighting it up blue, not talking about how neurological differences are au-some…. THIS is what we should be talking about. I thank my lucky stars each day that no noses have been broken yet in our home— nobody has been hospitalized yet. My twins, indeed, are the HIGHEST functioning children of parents in this facebook group to which my friend refers in her post. But I fear for the future……. if things worsen and my kids get bigger and stronger than me. I know for certain that my son would have been put in residential treatment years ago if not for the therapies and medications we’ve tried thus far. My goal in life is to keep my kids home with me, regardless of well meaning friends’ comments “you can’t live like that! Send them to live in a treatment facility!”
THIS is an au-some post. Yes, the term au-some is fine. Just don’t tell me that autism is au-some because it’s NOT.
