Tһеrе аrе two very different perspectives tһаt parents саח һаνе wһеח іt comes tο raising аח autistic child. Yου саח focus οח tһе difficulties аחԁ struggles, live each day Ɩіkе іt’s a battle against autism, аחԁ חοt accept уουr child fοr аƖƖ tһеу аrе. Or, уου саח embrace уουr child–autism аחԁ аƖƖ–wіtһ unconditional Ɩονе. I tһіחk wе owe іt tο ουr children tο сһοοѕе tο bе positive. I feel strongly tһаt οחƖу ѕһοwіחɡ tһе meltdowns, tһе issues, аƖƖ tһаt negativity…іѕ חοt οחƖу wrοחɡ, bυt wіƖƖ һаνе a dire effect οח ουr children аѕ tһеу become adults. Wһο wіƖƖ want tο reach out tο ουr children wһеח tһеу аrе adults? If tһеіr perception οf autism іѕ tһаt οf someone wһο really isn’t quite a person? Hοw wіƖƖ autistics еνеr bе accepted іח society, wһеח parents аrе bemoaning Autism everyday? Mу child іѕ here wіtһ mе, wіtһ a soul, a heart, аחԁ аח аmаᴢіחɡ mind. I celebrate һеr life everyday. Wһаt wіƖƖ уουr perspective bе? (Tһіѕ іѕ a rough draft…currently working οח tһе final copy, bυt wanted tο share)

    I am not referring to the author of the video but those who adhere to what she was referrring at the beginning.. I have shared this video with love to many sites :)

  2. Bekkiblueeyes says:

    You obviously aint watched the full video love, this is a parent who obviously cares for her child, watch the second half and you’ll see.

  3. Yetti0 says:

    My perspective as an AS woman and a mother is that any mother who claims her child was stolen or kidnapped by autism …she wants attention for herself… the AS child is a conduit for it… Muchhausen by Proxy.

    Brilliant, Brilliant……what if Autism is simply Potential? What an amazing Mum you must be…..fantastic…and thank you.

  5. harrysmum79 says:

    Oh thank you thank you thank you for sharing this video. My son has autism and I find him the funniest person ive ever met. so does everyone else, they never forget him!!! This reminded me of the positive on one of my darker days. Thank you so much!!!

  6. aspergerchild says:

    Thanks for sharing your positive perspective of Autism. It helps to remind others that we love our children too. Thanks.

  7. impishautumn says:

    I love your views and attitude towards autism! My 8 year old son has Autism and is the light of my life. Again absolutely loved this video!

  8. robboandtee says:

    What a wonderful attitude, i think that you really must look at the joy and love that an autistic child brings, i some times wish my other kids had dusty’s loving qualities!

    your little girl is beautiful

  11. tmventresca says:

    I am trying to get a group going in my area. The aspect of it is thinking differently and co existing rather that curing and depicting it as a bad horrible thing. can I have your permission to use this video on my website?

  12. johnellew says:

    Thank you! I really needed that. As a mother with two of my three boys on the spectrum, it can be really hard to keep a positive attitude sometimes. Especially days like today, which we had to spend the christmas money we’d saved all year to replace the toilet, yet again. (lol, things look cool spinning down the drain!?!) Anyways, great video!

  13. Fooey35 says:

    That was so lovely…its good to see positive thinking =).. Great video.. a positive attitude helps.. and can work wonders..i only wish people on the outside, would be a lil more understanding and less ignorant.

  14. Chillzer05 says:

    I completely agree with your perspective. I have a three year old son Preston whom is autistic….he lights up my world and brings a whole new meaning to being a parent!!! She is beautiful and unique hold on to that!!! They need us to believe in them…that helps them to strive and belive in themselves

  15. wvusweetp87 says:

    That is absolutely not autism. It doesn’t sound like you really know what autism is. If anything, you could possibly be clinically depressed and should seek a doctor, but you definitely don’t have autism

  16. XjayseeX says:

    i think im autistic i have not left the house in over a year im afriad of people and just want to hide away i get depressed and feel suicidal i want to go out with freinds from school and be normal not sit in my house all day ( im 17 now )

  17. lspaghetti7 says:

    This is my all-time favorite thing on youtube!! i teach kids with autism and I love them so much. I cannot imagine all that parents feel after watching this :)

  18. UniqueMJPT says:

    Please check out a great Children’s book about Autism, PDD and ADHD (big thanks!! Please spread the word about this unique book and tell me what you think about it). You can preview it on youtube profile called Monalisaknew. Just copy and paste the following sentence in youtube search engine :

  19. janielovesjack says:

    :>) Such a positive message..i teach students with autism and feel like they are the coolest, most awesome people I know!

  20. 1kristenblake1 says:

    YEAH! Thank you! My son was recently diagnosed, and I couldn’t agree with you more.

  21. ebonymom23 says:

    RIGHT ON!!!! My son is a blessing just like your daughter and I would not change him for anything else in the world:)

  22. adrishelton says:

    Im so agree with you…
    Im on your side ^^

  23. obsidianshaunna says:

    thank you,, you feel the same way i do for your daughter as i do for my son… joy… i get so tired of hearing : oh im sorry : when people find out that you have a child w. autism… all 3 of my boys are considered disabled… my youngest is autistic and my other 2 are ad/hd— bipolar… so i have my hands fun… but they bring me joy everyday… they are my angels sent from up above… any thanks for the positive perspective on autism… maybe one of these days others will feel the same way

  24. Criss498 says:

    i am a clinical tutor and i give ABA therapy to children with Autism, and i love your video and your intake on what autism is to you. i know that many parents view autism as a tragedy, but the tragedy-in my opinion-is not realizing what a wonderful UNIQUE child they have…

  25. aimz54 says:

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! this is the best video i have every seen….im a disability carer and some of the stories you here makes you weep …but this video proves that its all worth it at the end of the day …THANK YOU!!!!!
