Dawn-Marie

Patient Leader

I am a mother of 3 amazing children, 2 of whom are Autistic. I was raised that change starts with a single person standing up and speaking up, which is what I do. I present workshops, and write articles about many aspects of Autism; from how to inform others in positive ways about a loved one being Autistic, to creating sensory areas, how massage benefits those with Autism, and many other aspects of Autism. But above all else I try to help the world see Autistic persons as the amazing individuals they are. That having a child diagnosed with ASD isn't something to mourn, but that the child themselves needs to be celebrated for all they can do, for all they can contribute to the world, and all that they are, exactly as they are.
