Megan Amodeo is a stay-at-home mom with three beautiful daughters, a workaholic husband and a very energetic Alaskan Klee Kai dog. Prior to her children, she was working in special education. She has two daughters with autism and one daughter with ADHD. She is also on the autism spectrum. So you could say she’s definitely an “Autism Insider.” In her column, Megan wants to share her unique view of the world and be your source of hope. We have no doubt her words will accomplish that and more!
The truth is we are all different. We are all unique. Everyone has challenges and setbacks. Autism can be your worst enemy or your best friend. I was diagnosed with autism at the age of thirty-six. Two of my three daughters were diagnosed with autism at an early age. Being able to see the world as my daughters see it, is a gift I do not take for granted. We celebrate autism in our home every day. My daughters are funny, talented, and perfect just the way they are. Love the different! Be proud of your child’s uniqueness! Celebrate the gifts autism has given your family.
