Mild Autism” is the same as “a little pregnant

When I took a pregnancy test in the past I was either pregnant or I wasn’t. There was no half 2nd line … one line meant “no/negative”, 2 lines meant “yes/positive”, even if the 2nd line was faint. You see anything you are. Period, end of story, No debate.

But with Autism even though we all know it’s a spectrum, it’s a different story.

Just recently I had a mother of a level 3 autistic child dismiss my daughter with Autism as someone who doesn’t really have Autism AND she’s not the first to do this to us.

When this happens I am so shocked, I never know what to say in the moment.

Little did this mom know there was a time when my daughter with Autism lost all her language and was diagnosed moderate to severe on the spectrum.

Fast forward to today and we’ve worked so hard to not only talk, potty train, and stop her problem behaviors but we are still working because there is so much I want to teach her and all of it comes with a side of Autism, whether other people can see it or not.

Because just having the basics was NEVER all that I wanted for her.

I always moved the needle as we made strides because that is my job as her mom.

So whenever someone says dismissive comments to us I think of this quote:

“(So called) Mild Autism doesn’t mean one experiences autism mildly… It means YOU experience their autism mildly. You may not know how hard they’ve had to work to get to the level they are.” – Adam Walton, Autistic Self Advocate

If you have a child with Autism and you’re ready to teach them BEYOND the basics then I want to invite you to my new webinar.

Join me on March 26th at 7 PM EST for an exclusive workshop: 5 Ways You’re (Unconsciously) Sabotaging Your Child with Autism.

This session is designed to open your eyes to the possibilities that lie ahead and reveals common pitfalls that may be holding your child back from reaching their FULL potential.

​Of course, we’re raffling off amazing prizes for those who join us live and stay until the Q+A session!

See you there!.
