Autism Needs More than Awareness. It Also Needs Understanding!

Here is a great post that I came across today on Facebook that I wanted to share. I couldn’t agree more the author. Tolerance and forgiveness are traits lacking in our society at-large, but it multiplies against those with learning or mental disorders such as Autism. Not only is awareness of what Autism is (and largely, what it isn’t), people need to have an understanding of it’s unique characteristics and to have a little more patience and tolerant of those just a little but “different”, “quirky” or in some cases severely disabled. Regardless of how the world treats my boys, I pray that we will be able to instill into them tolerance, patience and forgiveness of others differences. If they exhibit that on their pathways in autism, then each will certainly be the bigger person and truly make the world a better place!

God bless,
