I received this comment yesterday on my post “50 things you should not say to autism parents” and I wanted to address it.
“First and Foremost..You are a Parent of a Child!!!!The Child is always first....same with the Parent...It is not the Autism Parent or the Autistic Child.....Please correct...” – Anonymous
Thank you so much for reading my blog and commenting with your concern. I too understand this issue and find it very important that my daughter is looked at as wonderful, unique Lexi. Not as a disorder. I have corrected people on occasion that she is not autistic she has autism.
