One of the greatest privileges I have had in my career has been joy of working with individuals and families who are on the Autism spectrum. Some of the most compassionate, resilient, and strong people I know are those who are able to embrace and love the uniqueness of those who are on the spectrum. For those families and individuals, it is the farthest thing from easy...but I know without a doubt it is worth it.
Since April Autism Awareness month, my company is running this social media campaign to spread the awareness of Autism. •
Not only that, this month is also Occupational Therapy month & I would love to give back to families who have been touched by Autism or any special needs. I’m far from an artist, but If you know someone who would be encouraged from one of these personalized prints, please message me and choose from the following designs with your address, or the address of the family, in the message and I will send them a personalized frame. • @toufue@email@example.com #ebsautismawarenessmonth2019#autismawareness#autsim#otmonth#occupationaltherapy#occupationaltherapystudent#autismawarenessmonth#specialneeds

Not the best start for today. I had to go into town at some point today to pick up a cushion someone had kindly given us for Theo’s swing. I knew it would be busy, so I wanted to get in early and be in and out. As soon as we parked up, Theo went into hysterics. I tried getting him into his pushchair, to no avail. So we sat in the car for a little while, trying to help calm Theo down. After about 20 minutes, Theo seemed calmer, so we attempted getting out of the car once more. It was better than the first attempt, but still not great. We rushed to the shop we needed to go to and Theo had a huge meltdown; lots of stares, lots of mutters and one helpful person telling me I should “give him a good clip round the ear” 🙄 We’ve retreated home now. We didn’t attempt to go anywhere else and now we are just chilling in the garden, which Theo seems much happier with. It’s a hard balance to get, isn’t it, between respecting and understanding your child’s needs and difficulties but also having to carry our essential and day to day tasks. I really hate to see Theo so upset like he was this morning, but there are times when things need to be done, but I always feel incredibly guilty for putting him through it 💛

Have a lovely weekend from us at The Autism Plan xx
We can all speak the language of PLAY. This picture was taken last week on my 4th visit to Shanghai Children's Art Theatre with @bamboozletheatre
Prior to our 1st visit here I remember feeling a slight apprehension about how different the language is here compared with my mother tongue. How would the play translate to children who spoke little to no English with actors who spoke absolutely no mandarin?! All of those fears were dispelled more or less immediately. Kids are kids whether they speak they are verbal / non verbal / speak another language / the same language. We were able to communicate in a way that transcended any language barrier, through pure human connection, through creativity, imagination, through play. The power of play is so immense and is what unites us all as humans.
Don't judge does with special needs just like autism. They are all human just like us. We all need to help those in need. Not because we are forced to, or not because you have alot of money to spend, It is because every thing you do to help someone in special needs, can change a life forever, not just that, but it is our responsibility. Everyone knows that they might be hard to understand but they need time.❤️
