I do not intend to hurt your feelings or make you feel guilty when I acknowledge the painful parts of my life.

I am probably not that much like your child. No autistic indivual is-- and I'm not diagnosed. I'm self-identified, and, although I have a little knowledge and expertise to back that up, I should not be assumed to be typical of any sort of autistic experience.

Listen to me, but not just to me. Find a variety of autistic perspectives. None of us is always right.

No one is a perfect parent. Don't beat yourself up over mistakes. Learn not to repeat them

Observe your child closely. Record your obsevations and base your plans on them.

Have high expectations of your child.

Love your child unconditionally.
