Autism is for Life, part two!

This is the second video in my Autism is for Life series - it features children, teenagers and adults who have all been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. April world wide is Autism Awareness and Acceptance month.

There are many myths and stereotypes floating around about Autism. In this video I wanted to show that Autism is for life - children, teenagers and adults all live with Autism. 

Autism is for Life.

Autism does not miraculously disappear when an individual turns eighteen years of age. Individuals may learn different strategies that they can use in different situations and environments. Some individuals may learn how to appear "normal," whatever that may be, so that they don't stand out from the crowd. But the Autism is always there.

Children who are diagnosed with Autism, grow into adults who are living with Autism. All individuals need support and love. They all want to be accepted for who they are.
