Featured Contributor: Autism Sparkles
I am a mom, special needs advocate, and public school teacher who believes a child’s value is so much greater than grades or numbers on a score card. In these last seventeen years navigating this autism journey with my son, I have learned that who my boy is… is exactly who he is meant to be. The reason I love, rather than fear, autism, is I see the bigger picture and how it has blessed us with a bigger view of life and a deeper appreciation and affection for different.
