This is something that creeps up every once in awhile. Someone makes the comment that a child with #Autism can never be successful. My response is the same every single time.
I think that if someone believes that a child with #Autism can never be successful, they need to reevaluate their definition of success.
Personally, I absolutely believe that any child can be successful. The problem lies in the expectations of those that are doing the judging and not the child. I think that too many people define success as money, fame and power.
I personally believe that success is defined by reaching ones potential and by getting up one more time than you fall.
By that definition, my autistic children are already a success and I make sure they know that as well as that I believe in them.
How do you define success? Based on your definition, can your child ever be successful?
