This is Autism, the hidden disability

This lady has an incredible insight into her Autistic child. Until we all accept that the gift of Autism is also accompanied by incredible challenges for the individual and their family, we are not going to be able to make positive changes. I personally see autism as a positive BUT until we get words that separate the wonderful variation in thinking and sensing from the painful, awful symptoms of autism, seriously what other words can a parent use. My God, you have a great attitude, you are doing so well doing a horrible job, I congratulate all of team Lachlan.

About a boy, a family and Autism

I started this blog as I wanted to create a positive space to show how far we have come, don’t get me wrong my magical wee man has moved mountains to get to where we are today, in this post I am going to be 100% honest with the world about the complete living hell, living with Autism is not just for Lachlan but for his brother and sister and us his parents. This post has been bubbling and building in me for months, I am at breaking point now, exhausted, broken and deeply hurt, this is the result of the constant battle against ignorant people, a system that doesn’t work and an uncaring world.

A Voice Released

(Rachel is a normal, healthy autistic who has been working with Nonautistic sufferers all her life)

1. Muted sensory awareness: Where the sufferer has a defective or lessened sense of smell, touch, hearing or visual awareness. Their palate might also be muted meaning they eat too much. Being defective in sound and vision abilities means they are often unaware of everything going on around them and miss out a lot on life. Sometimes they barely notice a touch or a flickering light as if they are not fully switched on to life.

2. Low Awareness Disorder: People inflicted with Nonautism Disability are often not taking in their surroundings enough and block out or ignore lots of detail. Although frustrating to live with people like this (friends, partners and families often report how they…

Adventures in Cheeseland

(Orion)

Greetings. Snoops and Kommando Kitty here. We have a pawsome interview for you today with the cats from Autistsix, It’s a great blog, except the cats don’t get nearly enough space. It’s about a family who live in Australia,which is apparently Down Under something. (The editors said to include it.) The lady who writes it says the whole family is a little unique because of something called Autism Spectrum Disorder. We don’t really know what she’s talking about; as far as we can tell, they aren’t any stranger than a lot of the other humans we know.
