A mum writes me a poem about autism to share here on the blog. Her little boy has Autism and she wants to show those who do not know much about it, a chance to learn more and hopefully become more understanding. She has faced judgement and at times feels Autism is so misunderstood. She hoped the poem will help.
My Poem About Autism
I know a little boy
He’s just adorable you see,
A person wouldn’t know by looking,
That he has a disability.
He has to practice and practice
To learn even the smallest things
Tasks that come easily to children developing typically.
Doctors call it Autism or ASD.
It means his brain is wired different and
He learns things better visually.
So make your directions short and precise
So his dependence on you will fade with time.
Patience, love, support and understanding
Is all that he is asking.
So when you meet this little guy
Smile and wave “Hi!”
His and your hard work
Will be worthwhile
When you get to see that charming grey eyed smile.
