Thank you !!!
Agreed 💯%!!! This “R” word should be the ONLY “R” word any of us ever hear.
As autism families, we all need more of it.
Let’s all show respect for our ASD loved ones, and model to the entire world that we will tolerate nothing short of RESPECT.
And, we need a lot of it too! 💪💙 Credit: The Mighty.com

"autismawareness is so vital these days, this is my not so little younger brother sporting the ‘dare to be yourself’ t-shirt. Unfortunately we are living in a society where although there is increasing awareness about autism there is a huge lack of acceptance in social groups...a person with autism needs listening too, things that may not bother us could be particularly overwhelming to them, people need to be patient and allow them to express them self and help them to feel comfortable." ~Ellie
Adam missing daddy so much that he went jogging with my sling bag around his neck and wearing my black pull over jacket. Adam oh Adam, if only daddy can bring you along everywhere I go, I would.
Alhamdulillah. I just got home. Adam dah tidur. Esok kita gi breakfast sama-sama my son, InshaAllah.

✨PROUD #AUTISMMOM ALERT✨Thanksgiving is the anniversary of when my daughter (her nickname is Nooshie) was diagnosed with #autism.
Every year in the spirit of giving thanks I like to reflect on my family’s journey and share the lessons autism is teaching me and what I am grateful for. ✨
I do this because I remember as a first time Mum being terrified when I got my baby’s diagnosis and I yearned for comfort from people who were “in my shoes”. ✨
It’s been 2 years now since Nooshie’s diagnosis and I’m happy to report that my fear, anxiety and anguish has diminished significantly - it hasn’t gone away completely but it doesn’t dominate my idle thoughts and our days are filled with MUCH, MUCH more positivity than darkness. ✨
Nooshie continues to thrive and has slowly but surely come out of her shell.
When this journey first began for us her Dad and I thought Nooshie was having absent seizures because she went from being an alert engaging baby to staring off into space for extended periods of time, not acknowledging our presence and seemingly ignoring our attempts to get her attention. ✨
Fast forward 2 years, approximately 2000 hours of therapy (We ❤️ New York) and HUGE learning curves and our days are filled with so much joy, hope and of course LOVE.....always love.
Nooshie’s eye contact has improved so much (thank you Universe because I ADORE those eyes .... they look right into my soul).
Nooshie is still largely not expressively verbal but she has started to say words, label things, counts, says her ABC’s and she does know how to tell her mother “Way You” (which is Nooshie talk for “Go Away” 😂😂😂)..... so she is starting to be expressive 😉.
Nooshie has started to play games with us, is hyper aware of our presence around the house (read: follows you around the house, comes and gives spontaneous hugs, won’t leave you to go to the bathroom in peace 😂) and has learned a boatload of new skills that have opened up her world....
