I've had a couple of conversations the last few days, that have really got to me. They have upset me no end and proved to me that there is still such a long way to go, when it comes to autism awareness.
There is still the 'stereotyping' children with autism. For example:
He can't be autistic, he makes eye contact. Oh he's just naughty.
Those are 2 of the biggest presumptions about autism, 2 things I've actually heard in the last few days. THEY ARE FALSE!!!
I am shocked to still hear these things being said, and by 'professionals' too!? How much more do we need to shout? How much more can we educate, when people don't want to learn?
