Autism is something very near and dear to my heart, having been blessed with someone who teaches me so much every day!
And yet with more than half a million Canadians on the Autism spectrum and double that amount of family (mostly) supporting them there is still no national strategy. 🙁
And the abuse of people on the spectrum continues at the hands of people, often in authority, that have not been trained in what it means to encounter people with Autism.
It makes me so mad I just have to hug my son all that much more and pray he never has to deal with some of the awful events occurring with people in the autism community.
