During the month of April in honor of Autism Awareness/Acceptance Month I am going to post a picture showing our autism. Autism is a spectrum. When you know one child with autism you know one child with autism. This is our autism.
Alyssa’s headphones…there are many times you will also find Alyssa in headphones. Courtney can be very loud. She makes a loud licking noise when licking toys and she makes a lot of random and loud noises when she’s really happy. Alyssa can not tolerate these noises at all! We’ve had to work hard with Alyssa on this because stopping Courtney from making these noises is an impossible task. So, sometimes she also wears headphones. If you were to ask Alyssa what the hardest part of being an autism sibling she will say her sister’s noises. This is our autism.
