During the most recent group session, Brian and his friends talked about how they could continue autism empowerment beyond April.
One of the ideas they had was to write a letter to the organizations that host Autism Awareness Nights. Here is what they had to say:
The awareness surrounding autism has grown exponentially.
But there is room for improvement. We need to see more awareness pieces others will understand. We know you mean well but it is not enough to place graphics up on a screen.
Please understand we are not bitter. All we want is to help others understand our world. Please hear us out. It could further educate the world. We can offer so much. We are so thankful for your help and we hope you will accept ours.
Together we can change the face of autism.
