What Every Child with Autism Wishes you Knew
By Ellen Notbohm (Parent of a Child with Autism)
"I am first and foremost a child..I have autism.. I am not primarily “autistic.”.. My sensory perceptions are disordered..Please remember to distinguish between won’t (I choose not to) and can’t (I am not able to).. I am a concrete thinker..This means I interpret language very literally.. Please be patient with my limited vocabulary..Because language is so difficult for me.. I am very visually oriented..Please focus and build on what I can do rather than what I can’t do..Help me with social interactions..Try to identify what triggers my meltdowns..If you are a family member, please love me unconditionally."
