Did you know that April is Autism Acceptance Month?
For years, the autism community promoted Autism Awareness in April. This year, we are not only promoting awareness but acceptance too. We want communities to foster acceptance and embrace autistic people all around the world.
With this in mind and thinking in particular of parents of young children with signs of autism, I want to share an interview I did a few months ago.
The clinical director of Real Connections therapy centre in Dublin, Mane Datti, welcomed me to their Instagram live session. Mane wanted me to share my journey with families of young children, support them while seeking a diagnosis, and understand the supports we need to put in place in those early years.
Please share this article and video with any families who might be concerned about their child´s development as it will provide some guidance for them.
