A very Happy New Year from all at AWARE! It’s time to take a big deep breath now Christmas with all of its excitement, expense, planning – and often – anxiety, is finally over! January can of course be a difficult time; not only are we in the depths of winter, everywhere you turn somebody is urging you to come up with resolutions or to try this or that new lifestyle. A lot of pressure for anyone but especially the parent or carer of someone who is autistic who can already have so much on their to-do list.
So instead we are sharing a post from our favourite blogger, Kizzi – a former AWARE employee and a font of knowledge about autism – as we love how it encourages hope and growth without any pressure to discover a ‘new you’!
