Coming Soon! Book #2
After some frequent encouragement (please read that as "constant badgering") from my husband, I wrote a children's book!
This is a little sneak peek of the main character. His name is Artie, and he has autism. (I am sure that you would never have guessed that in a million years. Me. Writing something about autism. Shocking!)
How perfect is he though?! With his AAC device and blue shirt for autism awareness.
After some not-so-spectacular encounters with uninformed humans, my desire to educate and advocate hit an all-time high. I always want to stop everything and teach/explain/lecture when people don't understand autism. I thought, "how can I reach more people?"
Write a children's book, that's how!
I started to think about Finley starting school, and how many of his new classmates might not understand autism. Children are so impressionable and understanding. Teaching them about autism at a young age will hopefully increase their awareness and acceptance. My hope is that, with more exposure to autism, people will be more understanding.
