When your autistic child’s biggest bullies are other parents

I enjoyed this article as a gentle reminder of one of the biggest challenges we as special needs parents face in the world today.  We’ve all felt those eyes monitoring and judging us and our kids when we’re out in the world.  But when other adults actively chose to segregate and separate our kids, the world only gets worse for all of us.  As adults (whether we’re parents or not), we should always strive to encourage inclusivity, acceptance, and remember that the variety of our kids’ personalities, challenges and lives is so infinite, so must our compassion, open-mindedness and patience for ALL KIDS follow suit.

People assume Chloe is just a poorly behaved child or I am a deficient parent.
