April is Autism awareness Month❤️ I've been putting together some ideas to raise awareness... hopefully finishing soon! My 1st born was diagnosed with autism on his 2nd birthday, spd, and was completely nonverbal. Countless days/sessions of therapy sometimes 5 times a day/6 days a week, meltdowns, sensory needs, started school on his 3rd bday, and here we are 2years later never giving up hope. People will always pass judgement or attempt giving opinions about parenting and will always assume they are an autism expert just because they know of someone with this disability. Parents like myself, along with our children need acceptance, and not to be critiqued. We can only hope to 1 day live in a world where being different is okay and that we don't need acceptance for being ourselves. Ali- I cherish hearing your little voice given I never knew if I'd ever get to hear you speak, I cherish when you look me in the eyes given once eye contact was your biggest struggle, and Ali when you smile it reminds me that together we can get through anything. Everyday I fear your safety, and so I continue to teach you as much as you will understand and I will never ever give up. I never take for granted every word, every laugh, or every dance we have together. Please everyone don't pass judgment on other parents when you see a child acting out.. the child can have autism, spd, nonverbal, or any type of disorder. Autism doesn't have a certain type of look.. people don't have to look different to have a disability... Teach your children to also be accepting of others and that we are ALL different!! I wrote this post in hopes that it can make a difference.. Feel free to share!! 💙💗 #autism #autismawareness #autismspeaks #autismawarenessmonth #spectrum #disorder #autismlove #affection #happy #friday

Tonight the @autismacademysc celebrated 10 years of autism therapy being a part of insurance coverage. Ryan's Law has enabled so many to afford the help they need. Thank you to Lorri Unumb for having me perform at this special anniversary event & to Ryan for the inspiration he is everyday! 💙 #AASC #RyansLaw #AutismSpeaks #MissSouthCarolina

#LearnMore #KnowMore #LoveMore 💙#AutismAwarenessMonth is coming to a close. But that doesn't mean we should be any less aware. Some days, however, we are more aware than others. And today was one of those days. If you know anything about people who are on the Autism Spectrum, you know that deviation from their normal routine is something that can become very overwhelming, very quickly. This is Summer. She has Autism. And she experienced that deviation from routine today. And she became so overwhelmed so quickly, she tried to run away. When one of our #DreamTEAM members (@kendico) caught up with her, Summer wasn't approached with frustration and anger (which would've only further upset her). But she was approached with kindness, understanding, and compassion. And when Summer asked, "Can I see Pastor?" I'm sure you can see what the answer was. 🤗 All you need is love. 💙❤️#AutismAwareness #AutismSpeaks #LoveGodLovePeople

Uno y cada 65 niños nacidos hoy tendrán autismo. Una cura no se conoce, pero la investigación es prometedora. Un día creo que se encontrará la cura para el autismo. Trabajando juntos un día encontraremos esa cura. Nunca me rendiré como Líder Político hasta que se encuentre la cura. Me dio un gran privilegio premiar a mis amigos @aliletcodiciado @grupocodiciadooficial con honores del Gobierno de los Estados Unidos por su compromiso de crear conciencia sobre el Autismo en los Estados Unidos y México. Lo imposible siempre es posible, no importa si tienes autismo como yo, porque mientras crees en ti mismo todo es posible. Gracias @pepegarza por unirse a este movimiento especial. #Autismo #Autism #autismawareness #ConcienciaAutismo #GenerationRescue #AutismSpeaks #CHLA

As April (Autism Awareness Month) winds down, I'd like to remind everyone NOT to support Autism Speaks. They are a terrible organization and very detrimental to people with autism and their families— for more information on this, please ask me or Google it. If you'd like to donate to organizations that actually uplift autistic people and their families, I would encourage you to research some like Autistic Women’s Network and/or Autistic Self Advocacy Network.
Not many people know this, but I have ASD. ASD refers to Autism Spectrum Disorder, and I was diagnosed about two years ago with Asperger's, which is a high-functioning variant of ASD. People with Asperger's/Autism are not all the same, and while some of us have spectacular memory and can do math in our heads faster than a calculator, others have different things we are good at. Most people who have autism have heightened sensory awareness, non-standard methods of learning and problem-solving, stimming, tendencies to hyperfocus, atypical ways of communicating, etc. I want to highlight the fact that people with autism are not burdens to society or any lesser than NT (neurotypical) people. There is a long way to go for ASD research— my family tried to get a diagnosis long ago for me, and I was misdiagnosed, largely based on the opinions of then-experts who told us that 'Asperger's was a condition for boys', which is wholly untrue.
If you want to advocate for us, please remember that there are already lots of autistic people advocating for the community, so please— have a voice, but don't speak over us. Do not correct us for the terms we use. Another thing that is super important: DO NOT treat us like babies or speak down to us. We are capable of knowing what we want.
Thank you for reading all of this! I hope that this post has informed you in some way. If you already know all of this, that's great! If you didn't and you're curious, please DM me and I'll be more than happy to answer your questions, providing they are not invasive or rude.
Have a great day 🌞

EMERGENCY UPDATE!!!! EVACUATE! Evacuate now! It's time you evacuate anyone from your life that is hindering the process you have started to reach the level of success and greatness you desire. You're on this journey but it feels like something or someone is holding or pulling you back. The crazy thing is, you continue to let them.
