Comment on Our Life With Autism by Silly Mummy.
Lovely to learn a bit about Noah (& I love his Johnny Cash hair cut). I hope that awareness of things like ASD will keep increasing, so that others will be more likely to understand that sometimes there is more behind someone’s behaviour than you may be able to see, and respond appropriately. At the moment there is too much of an assumption that there is a ‘correct’ standard of behaviour and all children should be able to meet it and, if they don’t, they are ‘naughty’ or the parents are at fault. The fact is that not all children are the same, and not all children are able to respond to situations or behave in the same way as some other children might. That should not be a bad thing: it’s just a thing, the way it is.
