Are you aware that yesterday was Worldwide Autism Awareness Day?

https://www.autismspeaks.org/what-autism/world-autism-awareness-day

See the above link

I wanted to acknowledge the day and apparently it is .Autism Awareness Month as well.

Thinking of all of those who are dealing with Autism with their loved ones--



*** What are several things you would like people to know about what it's like to live with Autism or to live with someone who has Autism?

Yes Tris. Thank you for caring. God bless you my friend.
I had tears in my eyes yesterday because my wonderful president Trump lite up the Whitehouse in blue to promote awareness in recognition of autismspeaks.org autism day.
You acknowledging this reinforces what I already new your a person who truly does all they can to promote fairness and decency.
Autism has had the most profound affect on my life anything ever has. It clarified what true love, commit, persistence and hard work are. I knew previously because I won most battles in life by being persistent and determined. Being a good parent to an autistic person requires advocating for them constantly.
I have not had much time to pursue my dreams but, that is fine because my son has made progress and he is usually happy.
Our journey begin in Children at Play a therapeutic nursery owned Linda money, incompetent Solomon and run by Stacy, incompetent Briggs. They new nothing about autism or how to help my son and never admited he was autistic. He lost speech after the MMR.
In the home base ABA program which I paid for. Two psychologist Young and Veener taught him to speak. I helped them start NY Child. By telling wealthy people they were good. At eleven Young demanded a bigger donation (randsom) or she was throwing my son out. Young said, tell your wealthy brother in law to give more or he is out.
The evil young said, no other program would take my son. A better program did take him and help him much more than NY Child ever did. NY Child neglected and abused by son.
We paid for school for over six months. Than they were funded by the city and state.
I work with my son every weekend and break I will never give.

Tris, I will never be able to completely dismiss my anger about what Young, Veener, Gold and the director of their parent company AABR did to us. The director of AABR Weldon is an over paid soulless piece of garbage. So are Young, Veener and Gold People like this belong in Hell. They deserve autistic family members. The NYC nurse is no better.
When they send someone back, I will not be pleasant. These paper pushing, incompetent city workers deserve no respect. This is going on months. It took over a month to get a hearing decision despite that the judge decided we won on the day of the hearing.
All resources they provide will go to help my son. He has anxiety about doing things and I need help in these situations. Taking him to have his teeth clean just cost be a fortunate. The cleaning was almost two hundred dollars because she takes no insurance and I paid a great young man a hundred dollars to go with him. My son works for me but, when he's afraid he says no. The young man was able to get my son to sit because he work with him at program.

Now they intend to send someone back to ask more questions. Despite the judge ruled we are corrected. Base on what my son's doctor said.
I do not have patience for people who assume they know but, actually no little to nothing. I never assume I know everything. These ignorant morons thinking they know as much as I do about autism is like me assuming I understand Quantum Mechanics because I read about.
This nurse decided my son was violent despite that he did nothing violent. She decide we could not care for him. How dare she?

Tris, I am grateful that you both care.
I am battle scared and worm but, I fight on. It hard to explain to you all I have endured. Researchers have compared the life's of parents of autistic people to solders.
Recently we applied for help through an NYC program. A very uninformed, unpleasant, nasty and ignorant nurse turned us down. She asked a thousand of questions than ran out when my son got home. Clearly she was afraid of him because he is a tall, strong and good looking young man. We went to a hearing and documented what she said was not true. The city will have fund more help for my son. We won but, I am furious that we had to deal with such an incompetent, unkind, ignorant women. If you fear autistic people and know nothing about them your not qualify to work with them.

Yes, and Kraven cares too.

I'm happy to hear that your President cares about Autism as well-- hopefully this will mean more funding for families dealing with this, as well.

Yes, I was.
I get news letters from Autism Speaks.

Hash tags don't work as links here, but I'll use one anyway: #LightItUpBlue

I'm with you. My thoughts and prayers are with all the families and researchers that are living with and working on treatments and cures for autism.
