Embracing Autism: Our Journey Continues – Building a Supportive Network for Saar and Myself

Embracing Autism: Our Journey Continues - Building a Supportive Network for Saar and Myself

After sharing my experiences as a single mother embracing autism in my previous blog post, I received overwhelming support, kind words, and encouragement from the community. Many of you have asked for more details about our journey, and I am more than happy to share. In this follow-up post, I will discuss the importance of building a supportive network for Saar and myself and the steps I have taken to create such a network.

  1. Finding the Right Professionals: As a parent of a child with autism, having a team of skilled professionals is essential. This team should include doctors, therapists, and educators who understand autism and can provide tailored support for Saar. After much research and a few trials and errors, we finally found a team that works best for us. They have helped Saar develop essential communication, social, and emotional skills.
  2. Connecting with Other Parents: I cannot stress enough the importance of connecting with other parents facing similar challenges. These connections have provided me with invaluable emotional support and practical advice. I found local support groups, online forums, and social media groups where I could share my experiences and learn from others.
  3. Building a Supportive Community at School: School can be challenging for a child with autism, so working closely with the school to create a supportive environment for Saar is important. I regularly communicate with Saar’s teachers and support staff, ensuring they know his needs and that he receives the necessary accommodations. I also educate them about autism, providing resources and suggesting training opportunities.
  4. Involving Family and Friends: My friends and family have played a vital role in supporting Saar and me throughout our journey. I have taken the time to educate them about autism, its challenges, and its unique qualities. By sharing our experiences, I have created a circle of people who understand and support Saar, making our lives much easier and more enjoyable.
  5. Advocating for Saar: I advocate for Saar’s needs and rights as a parent. I have become actively involved in local and national autism advocacy organizations, attending events and lobbying for policy changes that benefit individuals with autism and their families. By raising awareness and fighting for change, I am helping to create a better world for Saar and others like him.

Conclusion: Building a supportive network for Saar and myself has been essential to our journey with autism. It has helped us navigate challenges, celebrate victories, and learn from each other. I hope our story can inspire others facing similar situations and demonstrate the power of community in embracing autism.

I look forward to sharing more about our journey in future posts.

Stay tuned for the next post in this series. I will share tips on managing day-to-day challenges and creating a structured, predictable environment for a child with autism.

My name is Adi, and I am the proud parent of Saar, a lively 17-year-old who happens to have autism. I have created a blog, 101Autism.com, with the aim to share our family's journey and offer guidance to those who may be going through similar experiences. Saar, much like any other teenager, has a passion for football, cycling, and music. He is also a budding pianist and enjoys painting. However, his world is somewhat distinct. Loud sounds can be overwhelming, sudden changes can be unsettling, and understanding emotions can be challenging. Nevertheless, Saar is constantly learning and growing, and his unwavering resilience is truly remarkable.
