I learned to work so closely with families through wonderful kids that happen to have this condition. Sometimes communication is not so easy, words and feelings become dammed up and shaken up like a carbonated drink.
I believe we have all experienced this in our lives but unless we can tap into that empathy and compassion it will be difficult to truly relate to how an child with autism feels.
I appreciate the strength and courage of the families and teachers that have worked together to support one another. Let's hope that financial help for families through Health Care laws can start a change for many families.
