Autism Awareness: Just be aware

Sometimes, we get so totally focused on the Autism label, that we forget about the person. Whether it’s a child, a teenager or an older person with Autism or Asperger’s, the label doesn’t define them. Get to know THEM – try and see past the label and the behaviours to find the real person that might be hiding in there. Love them as much as you can, show them you care and that you will always be there for them. Accept them with all their quirks and insecurities and different ways of doing things. Because that’s all any of us want, regardless of who we are.
