“Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew.”

Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew. From the book by Ellen Notbohm©

  1. I am a whole child. My autism is part of who I am, not all of who I am.
  1. My senses are out of sync.
  1. Distinguish between won’t and can’t.
  1. I interpret language literally.
  1. Listen to all the ways I’m trying to communicate.
  1. Picture this! I am visually oriented.
  1. Focus and build on what I can do rather than what I can’t do.
  1. Help me with thinking and being social.
  1. Identify what triggers my meltdowns.
  1. Love me unconditionally.
