Autism is becoming more and more common
more boys than girls….does that mean it’s a recessive thing??
when girls “get it” it seems to be more severe
is there something in our food source affecting people
our often overuse of medications
medications getting into the water supply from “toilet dumping”
something that happened in the womb???
science doesn’t know though they are examining many theories
we may never know the cause
but what is important is that those of us with loved ones with autism
that we keep reaching out to them, to make connections, on their level and that we try to have understanding that
even though they may not reciprocate in the way we would like
that they know they are important to us and that we love them
as a parent
we must do everything possible to get them ready to function in a world that is not often “autism friendly”
they must learn how to act/adapt/behave in a world that does not always make sense to them
autism is (for my son) a diagnosis, finally a reason for his behaviors, thoughts, actions….not an excuse….
so for that reason…..for awareness……
thank you to all who light it up blue!
