Following on to my Am I or Ain’t I blog the other day…I explore the pros and cons of diagnosis…and even self-diagnosis.
As an #advocate for my #HappilyAutistic #ProudlyPDA #neurodivergent little human, there are times when I come face to face with my own issues. Am I too #ActuallyAutistic?
Can a child #OutGrow #Autism? That is a quagmire of assumptions. Yet it is exactly what one scientific study into autism is claiming. But what is the truth?
Myths and misinformation do harm…sometimes serious harm…to the #ActuallyAutistic. Today’s especially caused problems for PanKwake…because #Autism is NOT just a Boy thing!
So now you know. Your child carries the Big A brand…#autistic. So what? What exactly does that mean anyway? Advice from one parent of a #HappilyAutistic human being to others. #AutisticSuperHero
My final thoughts on diagnosis…almost four years on…yet just as relevant in this moment.
