April is National Autism Awareness Month. The only thing that will take away the stigma is education. For a start, you can click here.
Isabella is diagnosed as PDD-NOS or Pervasive Developmental Disorder – not otherwise specified. Basically, she has some of the symptoms of autism but is not in any exisiting category. As far as we can tell, hers is a mild case. Only time will tell. We love her so much and that doesn’t change. Our love only grows.
I have learned so much these past couple of years. Isn’t it a shame that we tend to research only what is close to us? Then again, we can’t study every condition – that would be impossible. I can only hope that people would be sensitive when a child (or anyone for that matter) is different. No staring or judgement. No one can know theeir reality.
Bless you all. I am on a one person crusade to increase activity here on spaces. love, gail
