Ahh the good ol' days. Or were they? They days when Liam was younger and newly diagnosed. Meltdowns were around every corner. He had to touch EVERYTHING in sight to fulfill his sensory needs. I started only wearing autism awareness clothing because I was so tired of the stares and the comments. I was tired of verbally educating.
Raising Autism Awareness Wherever We Go
Now that he's older, and "graduated" from virtually every therapy at our disposal, we don't raise as much unwanted awareness. However, we still like to don autism themed clothing. We do so to show our support for fellow autism families. To let another, newly diagnosed family know that, we "get it," we won't judge. To let the world know that it's okay to be different, and to embrace those differences.
The Coolest Autism Awareness Shirt I've Seen in Years!
I was on Etsy last week and I came across ArtsyAndInfamous. When I saw their "Dare to Be Yourself," Autism Awareness tee I knew Liam had to have one. First of all, it has skeletons. He loves them. Secondly the autistic one is doing the dab. Liam dabs everywhere, all the time. Not to mention that, daring to be oneself is a lesson that everyone can live by. One we should strive to instill in our children. Because after all, if everyone were comfortable being different, then bullying others may just disappear. (We can hope, right?)
Never a Dull Moment
Because in an Autism home, there never is a dull moment. This racerback tank top by ArtsyAndInfamous if perfect as well! It too features a dabbing kid, that's decked out in Autism Awareness.
Mother's day is right around the corner. So for the autism mom in your life, maybe grab her one of ArtsyAndInfamous autism mom tees. There are two specifically designed for moms to choose from. Both are adorably "AuSome!"
These are just a few of the autism designs from ArtsyAndInfamous. To see more, you have to check out their Etsy shop. They also have a really neat selection of other, non autism tees for every occasion. If you want something custom, they can do that too!
