t must be April, because my news feed is littered with calls for people to “Light it up blue for Autism Awareness”.
To be honest, it makes me cringe.
There are heaps of “Autism Awareness” going around. It’s what causes students at my kids school to “joke” and “tease” by saying things like…. “don’t do that, it makes you look Autistic.”
No. My kids don’t need #AutismAwareness — they need #AutismAcceptance.
