At Sounds of Autism, we BELIEVE that everyone has a place in this world, and we do everything we can as an organization to make everyone feel like they are fitting in. It takes an EDUCATED COMMUNITY to comfortably raise a child with Autism. Sounds of Autism is committed to serving the At-Risk Population, especially Autism but as a Unified Society and that is going to take time and we need your help A.C.R.E. Community.
At-Risk Families need to learn to be more comfortable seeing the signs, admitting to them, seeking HELP and embracing the fact their child was diagnosed with a disability that offers DIFFERENT ABILITIES during their Life-Time. We have a lot of Community Support Options to help with getting your child the support they need.
Community needs to learn more and be able to RESPOND when there is a need. Learning the Signs and what to do if they see someone exhibiting the signs. Many people say they are not comfortable saying anything. If someone did not tell me I may have taken even longer to understand and learn what to do. The only person who suffers from that is our child.
Responders continue to get behind what we are doing, and the Families need to hear this. I speak to families of all generations and ethnicities, and we are all saying the same thing, "I FEAR ALLOWING MY CHILD TO BE INDEPENDENT. Society, especially First Responders tend to lack knowledge about Autism, and this scares me to death, especially during Crisis."
Educators that I have been around are so generous in offering solutions, ideas to overcome hurdles and obstacles but at times Families are Giving up. They are tired of fighting for their child's needs repeatedly. It becomes a "broken record". We are all frustrated, and we are all saying the same things about frustrations we endure when we must LOBBY for the rights of our child or for things, they need to survive Life. The Parents on our team have been through it multiple times, It gets to be overwhelming, there are a lot of tears and sad days, and you never get to have a day where you believe you will be able to leave this earth in peace knowing that the needs of our child are being met. This is a stress and anxiety EVERY PARENT has raising the Autism POPULATION and it breaks my heart and we will not allow this to be the case any longer. Our Unified Responder Community Initiative will be our Primary focus so we can serve those who believe in our cause by offering SOLUTIONS that will help create SUSTAINABILITY for you and your child's life. WE CAN NOT DO THIS ALONE WE NEED YOUR HELP!!
