A Human World to be lived
I haven’t blogged for a long time and sometimes that is fine you need to recharge your batteries and focus on other things in life. I have since realised that I have been writing for sometime on a vast array of different subjects, topics and genres. That being said in the years I have been in the “autism world”. However well a live in a human world.

To ditch the militancy and politics that is harming and taking away from needs to be done, to ditch unhelpful stereotypes and to a see autism as a “fruit salad” that will educate and empower so that all voices and realities can be heard and acknowledged.
This means that the correct interventions, advocacy and support can be made some of this can be from the family and friends, other community based services and others professional.
Autism to Autisms Many Pieces Of The Whole….
With that being said how many areas of “functioning” regardless of presentation could be help if we saw autism and pieces that are specific to each person? So once those pieces have been discovered and found out then meaningful interventions can resume tailored for them be it.
