Autism Speaks asks: “How do you prepare your family, who may not understand your child or teen with ASD, for the holidays?”
Kbj Cosse’ -1) Offer explanations, not excuses.
2) flip the? HOW DO WE PREPARE THE PERSON WITH AUTISM TO UNDERSTAND THE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT ‘UNIQUELY DIFFERENT’?
3) Child or teen means they have been exhibiting an autistic lifestyle for a while. Why doesn’t the family understand after years of interaction? FAMILIES HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO KNOW, APPRECIATE AND LOVE EVERY MEMBER OF THE FAMILY… (and you can quote me on that!)
4) Every time you find yourself wanting to apologize about the person with ‘uniquely different’ ways, just stab yourself with that holiday utensil… cause believe it or not,…
God has endowed all of us with feelings… even if we can’t express or explain them to others.
People with Autism should be respected, served preferred food, wear comfortable clothes, and have all those other holiday considerations we extend to neurotypical’ people.
