Autism Doesn’t Discriminate: A Universal Journey

by | Nov 9, 2023

Autism is a condition that knows no boundaries, respects no social or economic status, and pays no attention to race, ethnicity, or gender. Autism doesn’t discriminate. It affects families from all walks of life, reminding us that we are more alike than different, and our collective support and understanding can make a world of difference.

It doesn’t care about how much money you’ve got in the bank, your job title, or your post code. It is a condition that transcends boundaries and yet mothers continue to walk out of peadiatrican offices with little to no support for themselves.

Autism, or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), is a neurodevelopmental disorder that impacts individuals differently, leading to challenges in social communication, behavior, and sensory processing. The statistics prove that autism is indeed on the rise. The crucial point to remember is that autism can affect anyone, regardless of their background or circumstances.

While the challenges faced by families with an autistic child may vary, the love, dedication, and the rollercoaster of emotions remain the same. High-income families may have more resources at their disposal for interventions and therapies, but the emotional journey and the need for support are universal. On the other hand, low-income families may encounter financial hardships when seeking services, but their resilience and love for their children remain unwavering.

Autism serves as a reminder of our shared humanity. It highlights that the love and dreams parents have for their children are universal, transcending societal labels. When we come together as a community, we can offer empathy, support, and resources to all families affected by autism, helping them navigate this challenging but rewarding journey.

In conclusion, autism doesn’t discriminate. It touches the lives of families from all walks of life. Our role as a society is to acknowledge this fact, break down stereotypes, and work together to provide understanding and support for every family on this autism journey.

So when you’re in the darkest moments through this journey and you’re asking your creator ‘Why my child?  Why me?  Why our family?’  Remember, autism doesn’t discriminate.
