…But DIFFERENT! Nice phrase! Here at AutismHWY.com we believe that…that is exactly what makes the world go round! Global thinking…It’s a BIG beautiful differing world we live in ! This profound saying has “come home” to Wyatt on a T~shirt for several yrs. now.
Seems this saying is what the Vets and Villagers in Viet Nam have used to communicate for OVER 40 YRS.!! Arms are open …embracing the differences and celebrating the exchange! Much like what will happen once the AUTISMHWY is fully operable!!! People enjoying the “culture”~~OR the “actions”…the differences of others! Truly where HUMAN GROWTH and spirituality come from.
I love what Dr.Tony Attwood says about the hyper focus and control individuals on the spectrum exhibit. IT IS TO BE REVERED & CELEBRATED! My thoughts exactly!! Read MORE about the good Dr Attwood here http://www.tonyattwood.com.au/ Happily I am seeing this ATTITUDE more and more! We are ALL EVOLVING! Let’s face it. In the past AUTISM has had us down for the count…had its stranglehold on US. Now the tables are turning! With acceptance and understanding..the cards ~are laid-out! The game is recognizable. His hand becomes exposed!!
So as understanding and knowledge about individuals on the Spectrum becomes common. We can forge ahead!” SAME…SAME, But DIFFERENT!” People in the same world on different planes. Or people on the same plane in different worlds. However you view it…there is enough room for us to CELEBRATE what the other brings to the table! A” melting-pot luck” if you will!!
Realizing that we all have something outstanding to offer this world is what keeps us motivated! That sense of accomplishment and self worth We all need it DAILY!! We deserve it! Just like our Sons, Daughters, Brothers, Sisters, Cousins and friends with Autism and or Asperger Syndrome !!
In the past there have’nt been the venues for this TALENTED POPULATION! Now I see that changing and what a great day it is!! Autistic ONLY Little League Teams…Award Venues, Art shows, Musical Productions & Theatrical presentations!! Heck even a story-line in a NETWORK PRIME-TIME T.V. SHOW! Woo Hoo…seems like We are arriving!!
