Classroom Management Strategies and other Teacher Worthy Ideas
“In no certain order, I have read the following explanations for autism over the years:
Autism is caused by mercury.
Autism is caused by lead.
Autism begins with poor maternal bonding.
Certain pesticides may trigger autism.
Gluten aggravates autism spectrum disorder.
People with autism should eat more strawberries.”
And so the author, Carrie Cariello, continues to explain how everyone seems to have hundreds of reasons for Autism. However, Carrie Cariello posted on The Huffington Post, that:
“Jack has autism because, as his 5-year-old brother Henry says, he was bornd-ed with it.
Yes, I believe autism is a genetic condition. I believe that somehow Joe’s DNA mixed up with my DNA and together we had a child who thinks Wednesday is orange. Perhaps his unique genetic coding makes him more sensitive to things in our environment like lead and mercury and plastic.”
What causes it? Perhaps a unique God-driven design that is given to a parent because they can help and encourage?
Please read this wonderful post written from a mother’s perspective. Her acknowledgement, love, patience, understanding, like:
“Maybe there’s a little something wrong with him because he just spent the last 45 minutes talking about all the different kinds of gum that Walmart sells.
I wouldn’t change a thing.
I might change a few things.
I celebrate autism and all of its spectacular wonder.
I hate autism because it makes my son talk about gum and Walmart so much.
He is broken.
He is whole.
Autism is no one’s fault.”
Again, please tell your teachers, friends and family to read this post. They will be encouraged and blessed.
