What I Wish My Teachers Understood

Calling all individuals with autism and parents of children with autism! 

In honor of April being Autism Awareness Month, I am opening my blog to you! What I Wish My Teachers Understood is a project where the real autism experts take the reigns. I want to share the stories of individuals with autism and what they wished their teachers understood about autism.

I want to hear your stories and share them with the world! 

And I need your help!

You are the experts about autism! 

Are you an autistic adult?

Do you wish that your teachers understood you and your behaviors? Do you have something that you couldn't share then, but want to share now? It's time to share!

Are you an adolescent with autism?

Do you wish that you could tell your teachers something about yourself, but can't? What is it?

Are you a parent of a child with autism?

What do you want your child's teacher to know about your child and their needs? What do you wish they knew?

Here's the chance to be HEARD! I want to hear from you, the experts, what you wish your teachers knew about you (or your child) and autism?

I am looking to share a new story from an individual with autism each day in the month of April. If you (or your child) would like to participate, please send a description of you (or your child), how autism affects your life, and what you wish your teachers knew about autism. Make your stories as long or as short as you want! It's your time to be heard, so no holds barred!

Please send your stories along with a picture (optional) to me at theautismquilt@gmail.com and I will post it on my website.

I need your help in this project, and as the experts, I am hoping you will participate!
