April is Autism Awareness month. All month we will be sharing quotes that we feel best summarize a child’s experience with Autism and how we as a community can better relate. Today we will introduce two quotes. The first quote is “Autism is a developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them. It is a spectrum condition. This means that, while all people with autism share certain difficulties, their condition will affect them in different ways.” What we feel is the most relevant from this quote is that Autism is an spectrum which means no two children or adults present exactly the same which should remind everyone that
The second quote is “If they can’t learn the way we teach, we teach the way we learn” by Dr. Ivarr Lovas. Dr. Lovas is one of the founders of Applied Behavioral Analysis and this is a commonly used therapy for children autism.
