Autism Awareness Month

April is Autism Awareness Month.  Groups like Autism Speaks have the campaign - Light it up Blue for Autism.  In honor of the month for autism awareness, I thought I would share a conversation my son had with his doctor.

Recently, my son's doctor asked him what he calls the conditions my son has.  My son says people say I have all these A words (Anxiety, ADHD, and Autism/Aspergers)  I don't really like those.  So the doctor asked what he wanted to be called.  HE said DIFFERENT.   So, lets embrace Different Awareness Month.

I saw this t-shirt at value village and it reminded me of my son.  It might even be his motto. So embrace your differences this month.
