A unique Education

A unique Education

I would like to educate as many employees in shops, soft play centres ect on the difference between a typical tantrum and an autistic meltdown.

Support this worthy cause for our wonderful uniquely different children

Why is this important?

My son is autistic and has sensory processing disorder, as you can imagine visiting shops cafes can be very difficult and stressful for me as a mum and absolutely distressing for my son. But life needs to go on and errands need to be ran. Me and my son have had several incidents where he's been having a meltdown and we've recieved comments from employees about his "behaviour" as a parent its heartbreaking to hear such comments and you end up feeling very isolated. So I have come up with a plan. I would like to educate as many employees in shops, soft play centres ect on the difference between a typical tantrum and an autistic meltdown. I feel this will be beneficial to parents of autistic children and the children themselves to help us cope in a world that's extremely difficult for us to be part of! So I ask you to please sign this petition for all the wonderfully unique children and their parents
