April is National Autism Awareness Month, an event that started in the 1970s to draw attention to the disorder, gain support for children and adult on the autism spectrum and raise awareness of their abilities. Many Autism Society local chapters will be holding special events in their community throughout the month, bloggers will be blogging, and much other inspiration will be happening out there… and here! would love to hear stories from parents of kids with autism. As our Facebook page says, “We think the best way to get the word out is through real-life stories.” So share yours for a chance to be featured in Parents’ “Living With Autism” story collection. Find out how to enter—and share your thoughts—over on their Facebook page.

Meanwhile, throughout April this blog will be celebrating with guest posts from bloggers and experts.

    I am the godfather to a boy with autism and recently wrote a children’s book based on him: to teach children to not ‘fear’ that which is different. I am so honored and thrilled the book won a national competition help by MeeGenius searching for the next children’s author. I am most excited to be a small voice in the world of autism awareness. My hat is off to all parents who raise those amazing children! My book is about superheros and I think the parents of children with autism are wonderful superheros themselves!

    When i notice my son wasn’t like any baby i had met i got a little worry and when i was told he had autism i try to read as much books as i could abouf the subject , i try to put in practice all the advice but i faild and i didnt understand why i was lost trying to make him acept this world and fit in i lost that battle.And one good GOOD day i decided to go to a conference for families that live with autism and gave it a try, it was tge first battle in mh favor and ever since then i have been winning all of them.I learn from parents whos kids were older than mine so their advise was put in practice and they taught me to not give up pn 1 st try and most importantly to get on his side , how i need it to penetrate his world and fit in get his acceptance and show him am on his side.I learnd that We dont have special kids we are special parents.My son now knows all the ABC’s count from 1-10 , most importantly he is able to communicate with me even if he is not doing it 100 percent verbaly he is amazingly smart can read a few words .He has filled my life with satisfaction, am extremly proud of him for ha the patience he has had giving me everything a parent could ask of his child.I wouldn’t change i single thing about him.Together we are breaking the odds when statistics were saying 80% og autistic kids dont talk i say 20% learn to talk and me and him are winning every battle we fight together and 15 yrs from now i will write telling u he is gone to college ,he loves everything about mechanics and cars.By the way my son is 3 yrs old.
