Your child is “in there”
SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE: That autism is a hopeless, incurable life sentence
BUT NOW WE KNOW: That some people with autism lose their diagnoses, many more improve greatly, and some break through with moments of clarity and language even when they generally don’t talk or relate much.
WHAT YOU CAN DO: Look at autism as a state someone is in rather than as a permanent trait. Believe that your loved one with autism is “in there” and relate to them as if they are smart and full of potential – because they are.
