“We all have something that makes us different!”
I don’t remember the exact conversation we were having when my 6-year-old son made this declaration, but I remember feeling so proud as a parent.
It was just the week before that we had been discussing what it meant to have autism. My kids and I had attended an event for families of children with special needs that was sponsored by an organization called Autism ALLways. As we drove home, I used the opportunity to discuss autism.
