In my world…

“With special-needs parenting, there are always more things you have to think about and more things you have to deal with and more things you’re going to end up feeling.  You might say that there are a lot of ‘ands’ — so many, in fact, that there is no room for, ‘I love my child, BUT…’ ”
Rhiannon Fieri

So, the parent must step out of time and place and become the parent this child needs, not the parent that society (and the parent’s ego) dictates.  It requires an almost superhuman love, where the parent’s expectations are set aside and the needs of the child are met first.”
from The Bipolar Child by Demitri Papolos, MD, and Janice Papolos

“It’s often said that rearing a happy, healthy, well adjusted child is one of the most demanding and challenging of all human endeavors.  Fortunately, it’s also the most rewarding.”

from The American Academy of Pediatrics Guide to Your Child’s Symptoms

“There is much more to a life on the spectrum than just deficiencies and deficits, and those “deficiencies and deficits” can very well be strengths in certain circumstances.”

Lynn Soraya

“I have autism. It is not a disorder or a disease. IGNORANCE is a disorder AND a disease. IT needs to be eradicated.”
