6 things the autism community wants caregivers to know

October 30, 2018

In honor of National Family Caregivers Month in November, we asked our Instagram community what they want a caregiver in their life to know. These are some of their answers. 

That they are the strongest person I know and that I am SO proud of them!

The small amount she helps with my son is so much bigger to me than she will ever realize. 

My family helps me and they support me because I am autistic.

How much they have changed our lives in a positive way.

Our community is very tight knit and it's great to learn from each other.

That I'm very nice, I love to be myself, I have a good heart, I do good things and more.
