Sometimes within minutes of posting, I turn around and do the exact opposite thing in my own life. Yeah. Exact opposite. Hi Blog. I’m Hypocrite.
My non-verbal son with autism has always been fiercely anti-mask…although not for a political reason.
Distance learning wasn’t made for children like my boy and, even when he was on task, he wasn’t actually taking in new information.
It was one of the best and most timely things I ever gave her.
This entire process went from a minor annoyance to a major catastrophe. Suddenly the new normal today was something that would have seemed like science fiction in February.
One day without school turned into two and then three and then fifteen. Soon, no one knew what day it was, when things were going back to normal, and what exactly was happening.
As long as it comes from a place of learning, rather than cruelty, I will answer anything.
We are so busy telling everyone that we’re aware and accepting of people with autism, we don’t stop to appreciate when they are aware and accepting of us.
Sometimes those golden sentiments of happy-happy joy-joy work in the opposite direction.
Once again, I learn about the world through his eyes in ways I never would have noticed on my own.
