Autism awareness It’s not just an hour in a weekday morning. It’s not a week. It’s not a month. It’s always. It’s not just shutting off the sound and dimming the lights It’s understanding why these changes are beneficial It’s not pity It’s seeing potential It is not a Google search It is searching for and learning from autistic people themselves It’s not comparing us to another autistic person you happen to know It’s about comparing us to the person we used to be to see how far we’ve come. It isn’t just for children It’s knowing that children grow up It is not a fancy way of marketing your business It is about creating business opportunities for autistic employees It is not asking us to justify our diagnosis or our behaviour It is asking us how you can help. It isn’t isolation it’s inclusion. So are you autism aware?
