Today it's story time. I share a recent experience my family and I had in my local community, specifically in response to my brothers who are adults on the autism spectrum.
In comparison to other experiences that we (and others' of course) have had, it's nowhere near how disappointing and devastating community's reactions can be to those on the autism spectrum. But it's still eye-opening and worth sharing, especially with it being April and Autism Awareness Month.
We still have a long way to go with awareness, understanding, and acceptance. But I think we'll get there through conversations and continued experiences out in the community.
It's Autism Awareness Month! But for many reasons (and many great reasons), there's a lot of topics to bring to the table when we celebrate this month.
One topic I feel gets overlooked pretty often is adulthood and what autism in adulthood currently looks like for the community.
I'm so excited to share some updates and let you know what you can expect from the podcast in the future...in short: it's gonna be fun!
