Autism Fact: About 40% of children with autism do not speak. About 25%–30% of children with autism have some words at 12 to 18 months of age and then lose them. Others might speak, but not until later in childhood.
I’m honoured to be taking part in the annual Autism Awareness Month blog hop arranged by RJ Scott.
I feel blessed to have two beautiful children who are my world. All I want is for them to lead fulfilling lives and be happy and healthy. Raising children is always a challenge – the world is a tough place. We’ve had our share of problems including being touched by mental health issues, and all the struggles that come with moving from childhood and through the teenage years. My girls are now on the cusp of adulthood, ready for tertiary education and jobs, and to follow their own dreams.
For all our challenges, I realise how blessed we truly are. Autism Awareness Month always serves as a reminder that others are dealing with different challenges and facing other hurdles, such as lack of verbal communication.
