Relationships are hard work. Whether it be a romantic relationship, a friendship or familial relationship, they require a mutual understanding and commitment to loving one another. Likewise, loving someone with Autism requires additional recognition in some areas that may not be so obvious.
Many people throughout the U.S. have a loved one with Autism. Studies show that it is one of the fastest-growing development disorders in the U.S. and it now affects 1 in 68 children. People with ASD (autism spectrum disorders) face enormous challenges. There are many cases where Autism goes undiagnosed or unrecognized but if sufferers get the right kind of support and encouragement, it can make an enormous difference. This being said, this Valentine’s Day I want to spread the “love” for our Autism loved ones. Not only can we broadcast our love for our Autism loved ones so that they DO get recognized but also so we can help others understand how to show loved ones with Autism continued love and support.
The reason campaigns like this are important is to spread awareness and providing resources our loved ones need to promote inclusion among everyone. The more people learn about these differences and are able to embrace them, the better people they will be able to meet.
