Little Voices: A Neurotypical Child's View of Autism
/

In this episode I explore what one of my daughters has learnt from a very successful Autism Awareness week in school.  My neurotypical child’s view of Autism shows me that children have such a big capacity for empathy.  It reaffirms to me that it would be good for every student, autistic or not, to share a class room where possible.  Children learn from each other as well as their teachers.  I certainly don’t want my children growing up to think that there are not autistic people, or any people with special and unique needs in the world.  Inclusivity needs to start young if we expect children to grow up as tolerant and lovely humans!

I appreciate many autistic children would not be comfortable in a main stream school classroom.  This is why funding is so important for our schools to ensure we provide equality to the quality of education offered to every child.

All we want is for every child to be enabled to become the best version of themselves, to reach their full potential.

‘Neurotypical’ kids are not afraid of differences, and once more I feel kids are ahead of the grown ups!
