A post from Easter time, 2012 that I reread and think bears sharing.
1
 
With this being autism awareness month, I dressed up this Easter Lilly in Photoshop. Many people on the spectrum are creative. I know I see a lot of things most people miss, because they tell me so. I used to think everyone was like me. This is called mind blindness. The bold and vivid colors remind me that, for autistic people, the world is often experienced in extremes. Finding the proverbial shaded of gray is a lifelong learning process.
Autism isn't pseudo. It isn't psychologically based. It is a very real and present communication and sensory disorder.
Please tolerate and accept the accidental faults of those with autism and learn more about the disorder.
Those on the spectrum, don't let the ill will of some neurotypical people destroy your life as I have for too long.

I was wondering how many autistic meltdowns are caused by a general feeling of helplessness and how many more could be avoided if the person had the proper coping skills and tools such as deep breathing and earplugs or a supportive, ASD experienced person to go with them into public.

I would like to see media coverage and coming stories in the weeks and months ahead regarding those affected by special needs such as autism in the wake of the deadly 2015 tornado outbreak that spanned the Midwestern and Eastern U.S.
If you know of any, please post them to my G+ page +Allison K.

For those in Fairdale and Rochelle Illinois, I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. I am praying for you, my fellow Illinoisans and hope you are trusting in Jesus who is much greater than the devastation around you. May you all be strong in Him and help each other through this.
