You have more control than you may realize as you strive to help your child. Most doctors say that autism is a lifelong diagnosis. But the truth, scientific truth, is it’s not. Your child can heal completely from autism. Listen to your intuition. You know your child’s quality of life should be better.
You see other children getting better. It’s possible for them and you might hope for change but you might be scared to really believe. I’m here to tell you it’s possible for your child too!
You know your child best. You spend the most time with them. Their autism might have you doubting your parenting skills. At times it can be overwhelming and difficult to parent but you are not a failure. Doctors, teachers, therapist all have their own opinions. They do their best but there are times when they are wrong and you are right. Stay strong in your advocating for your child.
Imagine the worse headache you’ve ever had…but yet people keep talking to you. Now imagine the worse stomachache you’ve ever had. Couple all that with either diarrhea or constipation or both. You’re in so much pain and discomfort that you can’t even sleep to feel better. That would be a horrible day, right? But for some with autism, this is their life…pain like this every day…and maybe this is your child…
But yet they try their best…you can see their determination…their desire to learn…their desire to be part of the family…they have so much potential…they try so hard. They do so much even when they feel terrible. They don’t know when or if the pain will end but yet they do their best and that is why I say AWEtism. I am in complete AWE at the capabilities and determination even when their body is failing them in so many ways. I don’t say autism, I see AWEtism.
You don’t need to be on the journey alone. You can get your life back and have extraordinary family fun. It’s possible.
