I want to get this message out there because I think that it’s pretty easy to lose sight of this.
Always remember that while your child is Autistic, they are also just a kid.
What do I mean by they are also just a kid?
Simply put, not everything can be attributed to them having Autism. This means that sometimes there are behaviors that are simply typical of their age group.
It’s not always easy to identify the difference but just remember that a kid with Autism is still a kid.
I’m currently trying to survive the puberty in my two oldest on the spectrum.
While they may sometimes be impacted by puberty differently than their typical peers, they are still impacted in many of the same ways as their typical peers.
Sometimes our kids with Autism are just being kids. .
Just some food for thought….. ☺
