Some kids are different

1 Comment

Whether you are Asperger, Autistic, or dyslexic – this article and these points will make sense to you. More and more we realize, that being happy has nothing to do with being ‘normal’…as being ‘normal’ has become quite a depressing picture, right?

Autistic, Not Weird

So, the points in general:

  1. Whatever you’re going through, you are not alone.
  2. The only person who can decide who you are is you.
  3. Sometimes your pace and methods will be different, and that’s totally fine.
  4. Once your school days are over, they’re over forever.
  5. Find the places where you can play to your strengths.
  6. Don’t blame yourself for things that aren’t your fault.
  7. If you need help, ask for it.
  8. Everyone else finds things difficult too.
  9. I’d rather be happy than normal.
  10. Remember how much you’re loved.
  11. Finally, listen to other people’s advice.

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
