If you google in the internet, you can find lots of answer on ‘what is autism’, you will get .. “.. development disorder,.. brain problem,.. brain disorder, ..problem in interaction.. the list goes on. I cannot give specific answer on this but, in my opinion ‘Sensory Integration’ is the best way to describe autism.
We are use to label people when there are differences, special kid, special need, slow learner or whatsoever comes into our mind. Are we are normal? what is your definition of ‘normal’ exactly? We are born uniquely different from each other, even identical twins have their own differences.
I am no expert but being a mother, you have no choice but to be your own expert, run your own research, learn as much as you can and act on what you think is best. It is always a challenge having ‘mild autistic’ child but i cannot imagine being in their shoes, it must be pretty difficult.
What should you do if your child diagnosed as autistic?
It is hard to accept and you begin to questions everything, you start questions yourself.. ‘why’? and you questions God ..”why me”? Indeed, the most painful experience one parents don’t want to go through but somehow we need to accept it. I was in denial at first but when i realized that there are interventions, therapy and many resources are available these days.
“Do not fear people with Autism, embrace them, Do not spite people with Autism unite them, Do not deny people with Autism accept them for then their abilities will shine”― Paul Isaacs
