Heather Ash's curator insight, February 27, 2014 1:00 AM

Although there has been an increase in awareness of autism, society still needs a great deal of education. As the article states, people have an easier time showing compassion for a disability that is visable and tangible. Since autism does not present itself physically, people may be quick to judge autistic children and their parents. Recently there have been headlines in the news about parents who are treated rudely at restaurants or are told to leave their apartment or neighborhood because of an autistic child. Educating society may alleviate some of the problem. The author also briefly mentions what parents can do to ease some of the pain children feel when they are in stimulating environments.

As counselors, we may speak to many parents who want to understand why their child plays differently and what they should do about it. I love that this article encourages parents to be accepting of their autistic childs different way of playing and how they can still make playtime a learning experience without trying to change the child or make them feel like what they are doing is "wrong". This is some great information to share with parents and caregivers.
