About Me

I am the proud mother of 6 children. 5 of our children have autism. We do not feel our world has ended, but just begun. We do not chelate, intervene biochemically, give shots of any kind, practice ABA, etc. We treat them as we treat any humanbeing. We treat them with kindness and respect and expect the same from them. They are exceptional children.

EMPATHY AND AUTISM...

I went to help Caitlin after her bath tonight....
I have a strained voice from my cold so I am not speaking in my normal
voice...

Caitlin said, "You're voice is sick !!"
I said, "Just a cold Caitlin, but Thanks"..
Caitlin said, "I will share my cough drops with you"...!!!


To the studies that state there is no Empathy with AUTISM...

YOU have not met MY children....!!!!

I know Short but Sweet...!!!
BUT...worth telling !!!

Being an Autie Mom myself, I completely agree with you. My daughter is 7yrs old and one of the most empathic and empathetic people I've ever known. They just don't give into pity parties and false emotion. I know my daughter sees through that like glass.

I love this post. I have a son with Autism and a Daughter named Katelyn (she wishes her name was spelled the way your daughters is). I am wondering how you can possibaly have time to blog?!!
Please visit my blog. We probably have a lot in common.

my campers are SO empathetic.

My favorite empathetic moment was my first summer at my sn summer camp. I had a terrible migraine and was sitting inside with one camper. I said "tommy, can you please sit for a minute, my head really hurts"

He got up, ran over to me, said "I love your face!" and kissed me on the arm.

I felt better instantly. I adore him.
