It is not very often that somebody comes along and gives you the tools of understanding the whats? The whys? But I can honestly say that Donna Williams (Polly Samuels) has done that for me and so many others on the Autistic spectrum over many years, empowerment is to give someone the confidence and ability to take hold of their life, understand their abilities and disabilities.
I first saw Donna in 2008 at a conference in Oxford and we have been friends on Facebook and she has on a personal level helped me understand the “mechanics” of my Autism which I shall be forever grateful for her help, kindness and assistance. She has taught me a lot of things about keeping it real and not forgetting that Autism is APART of you and not the WHOLE of you. 🙂 Thanks Donna.
This model is lateral and takes a holistic open-minded approach to autism what is, this model is person centred and is for empowerment and positivity. 🙂
