Today was Autism Awareness Day. What do you think about that? I am so tired of awareness, without effective action.
Nothing changes without action.
Take a moment and be captivated by the awesomeness of someone you are connected to that is on the spectrum. You see, the best action you can take to be more aware is to have a one-on-one conversation with someone on the spectrum, and really get in their world.
Connection creates awareness, compassion, effective action, and real true friendship.
I wish for all my peers to get the supports they need to fulfill their missions in life and be wildly happy while doing it. Support comes in many form besides Applied Behavioural Analysis, but until the powers that be can admit there isn’t just one quasi-effective approach to supporting us, nothing will change and a huge proportion of us will be under-supported.
Ok, rant over. Back to our regular program…
Lead with love, respect, and friendship next time you encounter an autistic person. We will be grateful for the action, and you may be greatly blessed.
