What not to say to a mother of an autistic child. But all children do that; Thank you, thank you thank you a million times for interviewing these folks and writing this. It is not bad for parents to hope for the best because, hope outweighs denial, hope is real, and hope heals.

There are often discussions about what not to say to parents about their children with autism. If there's anything hateful out there, then that's this mother and ableism in general. Watch for red flags of a bad attitude.

Ten things to say to an autism mom (or dad) if you want to get throat punched you'll notice i changed the title a bit from what is featured.i didn't want to be too aggressive from the get go! Nana, what an ignorant thing to say! Autism can be a pretty heartbreaking piece to read online.

So when you ask a mother this, not only does it reinforce that her child is different in the neurotypical world, it makes her feel like her child is different in the autistic world too, so just don't. Parents should learn that autism is not just “nonverbal with severe learning difficulties” but comes in an array of difficulties and a large spectrum. I also know that my autism helps me be a good mother:

I don’t know what you’re going through, but i’m always willing to listen. Sensory pain is real pain. Is there anything i can do to help you out?

You need to watch your kids better; If someone interacts with the child and does not know this strategy or if they forget and say hi bobby and get an echo, just have them drop back to “hi” and get a correct echo of “hi.” Your kid will grow out of it, right?
