    • Acceptance

      means you connect personally and learn more

    • Awareness

      means you can identify it

    • Acceptance

      means you talk to people and gain understanding, compassion, and sensitivity

    • Awareness

      means you know something is happening

    • Acceptance

      means you offer help and support without judgement

    • Awareness

      means you cope with it deal with it tolerate it

    • Acceptance

      means you embrace it, grow from it, and build relationships with people who have it not only those who love someone with it!

Autism Infographic

Autism is characterized in many different ways and every individual presents differently.

  • Autism "Profiles"
  • are not permanent; growth and development occur even through adulthood!

  • Autism Does Not
  • affect a person's ability to feel emotions but rather the way in which it may be expressed.

  • Community Awareness & Acceptance
  • is key to bridging relationships with individuals and their families living with Autism and any other developmental differences.

  • Stimming (Repetitive Movements & Vocalizations)
  • are important coping mechanisms and should not be taken away or considered taboo - if anything help shape the stims to fit the environment or give time before stressful or intense situations to give someone some reprieve! Believe it or not, you likely are a stimmer too!
