Hi there! I was reading about corporations finally helping out families of those with ASD or “simply special needs”. The following quote really hit home because it is our story all over the world.
“They were astonished to hear tale after tale of dramatic stressors in the lives of parents with children who have special needs. Parents juggled dozens of medical and educational experts, doctors and teachers, perplexed family and friends, and puzzling parenting challenges every day.”
Awareness is the key to change. I think about that every time I set up a Barbecue for Autism ON. Not only do the barbecues let the public know who to turn to when they get that life changing diagnosis of a loved one. But we bring awareness to the world like Horton does in Dr. Seuss’ Book “Horton Hears Who” that: “we are here!” ,”We are here!” “We are here!”
The original article is attached to the following link. It is American in origin. My hope Canadian industry is not far behind and we will all work towards “Neuro-Diversity” — because the world needs all of us.
