As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

Autism Quotes and Words to Live By

Tell me, and I forget. Teach me, and I remember. Involve me, and I LEARN.

Hey, keep staring at me and you just might cure my Autism. Then we can work on YOUR social skills.

If you keep on trying, you’ll get the hang of it...

Routine, structure, patience, and most of all LOVE!

‘Normal’ is a dryer setting.

If you have met one person with Autism, you have met one person with Autism.

Autism Rocks! (and rolls and spins and flaps and loves and laughs)

See my potential.

You don’t have to have a disability to be different.

I may not be where I intended to go, but I am exactly where I’m meant to be.

I just want to continue to exist, but you continue to question my very existence.

I do not suffer from Autism, but I do suffer from the way you treat me.

Autism is not a tragedy. Ignorance is the tragedy.

People with AUTISM... do not lie, do not judge, do not play mind games. Maybe we can learn something from them.

I’m just like everybody else... only different.

Just because I can’t speak doesn't mean I have nothing to say!

Not being able to speak is not the same as not having anything to say.

You all laugh because I'm different, I laugh because you're all the same.

Always Unique Totally Interesting Sometimes Mysterious. Autism.

  4. she was born a thousand years old her eyes told a story of one who understood so much but could not tell the story...as she grew older people avoided her because she was different,,,,her eyes grew that much wiser,,,,they were filled with hurt and wisdom...if they would had been quiet for a second they could have heard her laugh,,,they would have seen her tears.....she did not judge but was judged..she always walked alone....wanting to fit in just never knowing just how....she is a child but her eyes tell a different tale that of a person that is a thousand years old
