4 important reasons your child should know they’re autistic

Have you ever wondered when to tell your child about their autism?

Sometimes parents have a choice about when to tell the kids about their disability or disorder.  Other times, it’s really obvious.  If they’re in a wheelchair that’s not something you can hide; or anything else like that for that matter.  But when it comes to some neurological disorders, that’s really easy to hide.  It’s not just autism obviously, but ADHD, OCD, you name it.

My experience not knowing…

I grew up without any official diagnosis of anything. I was always just a quirky kid.  Some people love me for it, others were frustrated by it.  I’m betting it depended more on the moment than the person. I always struggled with friendships and life in general and it was devastating at times.
