Here’s our latest creation, just in time for Autism Awareness Month!!! Autism seeing the world from a different angle!! This is a soft silver tee with puzzle piece and black vinyl. We have sizes small to extra large in stock. Hey everyone! I’m back! I was really sick yesterday… had to get an inflammation shot and rest! I’m feeling much better today. Thank you to my sweet friend, for helping me out while I was gone. You da best, girl! Catching up on autism awareness shares. Here is Day 26. Autism Awareness Month is a time to spread awareness and knowledge about autism by sharing our stories.

We tell our stories to give others a glimpse into our world. Day 26 of sharing our favorite quotes/thoughts on autism is a quote that was often shared with me when I asked of all of you to share a favorite quote with me. Here it is! “Autism. Seeing the world from a different angle.” And it’s so true. As autism parents, I think we can all agree that our loved ones on the spectrum have a way of changing our perspectives on life and the things around us. And I wouldn’t change it for anything. I will take Oakley’s angle and perspective over mine, any day!
It was a cold start to the day at the Autism Speaks walk, but full of so many warm hearts coming together in support of Autistic individuals and their families! There were so many teams with some fabulous creativity in their shirt designs. Some of my favorites were “Autism: Seeing the World from a Different Angle” and “See the Able, not the Label”! Of course, the best part was seeing neurotypical advocates and allies making sure the event was structured around and for Autistic individuals (pom pom “applause”? Seriously awesome!) So glad to be a volunteer for this and to connect with others in the ASD community: until next year!!
Autism Awareness Month
Autism fact: It only occurs 1 in 189 girls! At the age of 4, Miss Hallie got the Diagnosis of Autism. She was also diagnosed with Anxiety and a Non Verbal Learning Disability. When she was a baby, I knew something was different. Hallie did not like noise and all batteries needed to be removed from toys. She talked but only echoed. We had her in speech therapy at age 2. Her speech therapy was amazing and started early intervention early. Hallie was so Lucky. She started EIBI, 2 weeks after getting diagnosed. She then went through 9 months of Early Intensive Behavioural Intervention prior to going Primary. This intervention was truly life changing for Hallie.
After 9 intense months we could have a 2 way conversation with our girl. Prior she echoed everything we said and often scripted parts of TV and movies. EIBI ends once you enter school. That didn’t stop her. She still attends speech weekly and attends LearnAbility all year. This summer we focused on Occupational Therapy for Hallie. For 6 weeks Hallie went to a hand writing camp at the hospital and relearned how to print. She also seen a private Occupational Therapist all summer. The OT was also life changing. He taught her how to use technology for everyday life. So thankful for Jordan’s Principle these past few years.
