Are your words harming Autistic Children?

What ‘messages’ are children on the Autism Spectrum hearing – from ourselves, from other parents, at school, from media and in the general community? And what are the ‘take home’ learning’s – spoken and unspoken, they are internalizing from these messages?

Of course there are parental challenges that come with raising children on the Autism Spectrum. No one should ever minimize that reality. But we  do owe it to our autistic children, and to all children, to remember that those challenges are adult challenges. They are separate from the child, and should not be something a child is burdened with hearing or knowing.
