The thing I wish people knew about autism ... just to understand that not all kids on the spectrum are the same, and not to say he doesn't look autistic. My son struggles with lots of things but he also achieves lots too. We have been hit with ignorance from neighbours and their kids and we have tried to explain things but it made no difference. They didn't want their kids playing with my son. That makes me sad. This is a picture of my son Stephen with his bestest friend, his Siberian husky, Juno.
Seeing the two of them together makes me happy, as I know Stephen is happy when Juno is around.
