Autism Awareness: I See You Everywhere

Jo Ashline's column from The Orange County Register.

Some feel panic. Some feel insulted that there's panic. Some don't feel nearly enough.
Me? I feel privileged to be my son's parent. I feel petrified about his future. I feel too exhausted to get in the middle of the ongoing drama that continues to play out in our enormous and diverse community.
To me, you are more than a number, more than an ongoing debate about the proper terminologly to use when regarding your diagnosis, more than the bickering ad nauseam playing out on unfiltered internet connections every single day.
Instead, I'd rather take the time to reassure you. To let you know that I see you; I see you everywhere.
