Autism Acceptance Week
It’s World Autism Acceptance Week! This means something very personal and special to us in the Green household. We are not only celebrating our incredible 10 year old who has high functioning autism. But supporting the amazing fund raising work by the National Autistic Society. Their aim is to increase autism awareness and in their own words, “Create a society that works for autistic people”.
On this very rare occasion, I am not talking about photography in this post but handing the floor over to my son Seb. It meant a lot to him to share the positive side to having high functioning autism. He wanted to make a video about his experience…
There is a popular quote, “If you’ve met one person with autism, you’ve met one person with autism”. And it’s really true! It’s a spectrum like a rainbow. Part of raising awareness is recognising people with autism are unique individuals. Yes – there are some common traits associated with having a diagnosis. However, individuals will often have different and varied challenges and needs.
