RJ Scott’s Autism Blog Hop

Autism ribbon



Autism Fact:

People with autism may also experience some form of sensory sensitivity or lack of sensitivity, for example to sound, touch, taste, smell, lights or color.


RJ Scott asked me to be a part of her Autism Blog Hop for Autism Month and I was more than happy to join in. Please stop by RJ’s blog to check out all the other stops along the way.

I have several friends who have children who are autistic and I’ve seen how difficult it can be for them at times to deal with a world that doesn’t understand their children.

In my experience, children with autism aren’t broken, slow or being difficult because they can be. For an autistic child, the world they live in is a whole different place than the one the rest of us reside in, but that doesn’t make it bad.

I truly believe they are able to see things that we, in our rush to get to work and do our jobs and live our lives, miss. Things we wouldn’t consider important or special become all consuming to them, yet it doesn’t make it a bad thing.

Autism creates a barrier between those with it and those without it, but there are many times when I think the children who have it are truly gifted with a precious ability to see.

We need to stop trying to force them into our world and start doing our best to accept them in their own way, and maybe work a little more at fitting ourselves into the awesome world they live in.

I’m giving away an ebook from my backlist (or upcoming release-if the winner already has my other books) to one commenter. The contest is open until April 13th. 🙂

    Everyone is different, colour of your hair, eyes ect. Just because we not all the same this doesn’t mean anyone should be treated differently.
    I am enjoying reading all the posts on this blog hop. I have learned so much that I didn’t know. Thank you 🙂

    I am blessed with a son who has Aspergers. He is the kindiest and most non-judgemental person I have ever met. If we the “normal people” could be more like him and all the other Aspies, we would all live in a better world.
    Thank you for taking this moment to appreciate all the people under the autistic spectrum.

    Autism can certainly be a gift as well as a disability. There’s something so special about the way they see the world.

  5. Thanks for the post, T.A.

    Autism is becoming more and more common in recent years. Thanks for spreading awareness. Just as you said, I believe everyone needs to be more accepting of people and thier differences. No matter what those differences may be.

  7. I think the last comment summed up your post beautifully – different not less!

    So true. My daughter sees the world so differently. It’s a joy to try to see things through her lens. At almost 12, she has come so far from the non-communicative toddler that she was. As I type she is singing beautifully with her autism-gifted perfect pitch. Different not less. <3
