Do you ever get to the stage where you are plodding on with every day life almost as if your on automatic pilot. I’m not talking about being in a rut, what I am talking about you just plod along nicely with everyday life. That is what I have been doing this last couple of weeks, just plodding not really noticing whats around me. Almost as if I’m in my own little bubble.
Imagine how an autistic child feels stuck in this almost safe world, then all of a sudden we subject them to all these new sensations, feelings ( which they are unable to comprehend ) and expect them to get on with it and manage. Then we wonder why they scream, shout and fight. To them this world is alien and they are find it difficult to live in it.
We try all these different strategies to get them to accept the world but sometimes for what ever reason the strategy fails then you are left with a very frightened , unsure child. For weeks I have been feeling very unsure, despondent about things but do you know what, why ? why worry I can’t change what ever is in store for me so why worry.
I think what I am trying to say instead of trying to change autistic children to fit into society, why not start learning about them. I really believe they have so much to offer and that I have been blessed with my special angels for a reason. Time to start seeing the wood instead of the trees
