‘Embrace the disability’ 4 parents share the pain and joy of raising a child with autism

On World Autism Awareness Week these four devoted parents speak about the challenges and rewards they face on a daily basis

Two weeks ago, the story of Odin Cumus’s birthday triggered a huge and heart-warming response worldwide. It also generated crucial awareness around the challenges someone with autism faces. In particular, the story struck a chord with many parents raising children with autism, who are familiar with the misunderstanding and exclusion autistic people and their families experience.

With World Autism Awareness Week this week, four parents have written about the highs, lows trials and rewards of bringing up a child on the autistic spectrum. By doing so, they have provided an emotional and much-needed insight in to what is often described as an invisible disability.
