I’ve wanted to ask questions a few times, but I’m always afraid to, because inevitably I see a post about it being inconsiderate to mention that your child is autistic without their consent.
My son is 4, he’s unable to give his consent. I sincerely hope that he’ll never be ashamed of who he is, and I really really hope that something can be done to change the way the world perceives autistics so he doesn’t have to be worried about how he’ll be treated.
But the thing is, I want insight. I want ideas. I don’t always know what he’s thinking yet, and the therapists guess, and all I’ve got is Google and my gut, which also seems to be mostly guessing.
I know that there’s a huge autistic community on Tumblr, autistics and family members alike. I want to be able to ask questions. I want to know my son. Each autistic is an individual. I want ideas on getting to know the little individual living in my house better.
And I don’t know how to feel about this. I might get called out, and I hate confrontation. I’ll probably not post for months after this. But it’s been on my heart for several weeks now, and I just wanted someone to know.
