“The world is a stressful place for the autistic child…”
My daughter Emilia is autistic. Autistic kids challenge you to parent in a different way, and to be brave and strong and gentle and wise. To move to a place of acceptance has been one of the hardest journeys for me as a parent.
Autism is with our family for the whole of Emilia’s life.
I wrote Emilia’s Colours, The Gift of Autism to raise awareness and understanding of the invisible disability of autism.
Autism must be very hard to understand from the outside, which is why I share qualities like acceptance and being non-judgmental.
I hope my book will support other families in a similar position.
Please check my blog so I can keep you updated on Emilia. Her ups and down, her progress and antics, that can be anything from chaotic, challenging to wickedly funny.
