Is the Autism Label Stuck?

Amazing post by Amalia Starr of Autisable.

Getting a diagnosis and a name for your child’s condition is extremely important. It will help you understand why your children do what they do and it can often point you in the right direction for assistance. At the same time, we must remember that our children are not their disorder or condition. They need to be kept separate.

Sometimes labeling hinders us. We think that our children might not be able to do things other “typical” children can do and that type of thinking can keep your children from succeeding.
