Autism Unveiled Week 1, Day 1
Who am I?
Making dinner for my wife, coaching an autistic person in preparation for successful self-advocacy, seeing my student suddenly realize they are reading music, helping the environment by riding my bicycle to work, or experiencing a person understand that autism is part of the diversity of the human gene pool… it’s all about making lives better for us on the autism spectrum.
How is Autism a Part of Me?
Fortunately, my parents spoke about autism at home just like they’d discuss anything else. Autism is an unalienable part of me and I enjoy using my strengths to help myself and others lead fulfilling and productive lives being the best autistic people we can be.
We are here to support others and to make the world a better place for all – autistically.
