April is autism awareness month for all who do not have autism in their homes. I no longer live with my autistic brother, but I constantly remember the experiences I’ve had. There are a lot of experiences with autism that are incredibly difficult, but those serve to make moments like the one retold in “Play Imitating Life” (http://ourprairiehome.com/2013/04/10/play-imitating-life/) that much more powerful. All children are brilliant. I wish all adults (parents or not) would realize that.
OurPrairieHome.com is generally a great autism parenting resource. I highly recommend it.
