When a child is diagnosed with autism, both the family and loved ones often go through a period of shock. I remember the very day our daughter was officially diagnosed with PDDnos. I knew the diagnosis was coming and yet still found myself on the side of the road, barely able to move. Well meaning individuals would say, “maybe they are wrong.” The director of her pre-school said, “Don’t let them label your child.”
I often tell parents, diagnosis is not about a label. It is about getting your child the services and therapy they need to reach their God-Given potential. Outside factors cause autism. We, as parents and loved ones can cause the healing to begin faster. This video is a great place to begin. Thank you to TACA and HowCast for creating and sharing.
