Heartfelt thanks to all who joined the Heart-to-Heart roundtable discussion last night!
Another session of sharing resulting in support and hope for parents of kids, teens and young adults with autism.
So many parents of children on the spectrum who want to make a difference for their kids. From those just beginning the journey in Kindergarten to those finishing high school and young adults out of college.
Next month’s A HEART-TO-HEART WITH MOM is Thursday, Feb. 12 at 7 pm at Temple Beth Sholom.
DISCUSSION TOPIC: “How Our Children Show Love”
- Myth: People on the autism spectrum cannot feel or express love or empathy.
- Fact: Many — in fact, most — autistic people are quite capable of feeling and expressing love, though sometimes in idiosyncratic ways! Further, many people with Autism Spectrum Disorder are far more empathetic than the average person, though they may express their empathy in unusual ways.
