Autism Awareness Month Begins | Left Brain Right Brain

“One will read comments to the effect of ‘I didn’t see any autistics when I was a kid’. As in ‘autism is an epidemic! I didn’t see it when I was a kid’.

Rather than take that on for the millionth time, let’s start autism awareness month with this:

Thank you to those who changed the world so that I can go into public with my obviously autistic kid.

When I was a kid, people with disabilities were shamed. Mocked. Told to stay out of the public’s eye.

The world has changed. My kid’s life and mine are better for it.”
