Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to, other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them
Some of our cultural belief about children disability is a result of punishment for the family’s previous sins.
LETS ACCEPT OUR CHILDREN FOR WHO THEIR ARE:
In the majority of accounts, the reason a family has a disable child is because the family is being punished for the bad things that they or their ancestors have done in the past
Because of this stigma, there is a lot of discrimination not only of the autistic child but also of the family as a whole because the family is seen to be a part of the illness.
Fear of discrimination and the stigmas surrounding disabilities lead many families to refuse to go to professionals to receive a diagnosis for their children. By refusing to be diagnosed, families can avoid having disability identities.
We believe that as the children of today are the adults of tomorrow, shaping positive ideas of disability will do much to help the cause of disability equality in the future.
