Did you know 40% of children diagnosed with autism cannot speak? For reasons we don’t completely understand, the numbers of children in our society diagnosed with autism are on the rise. The following is a beautiful, powerful video scripted and created by AutismOklahoma.org. This was published at the end of last month on YouTube. It is a magnificent example of digital storytelling.
If you know someone in Oklahoma affected by Autism, put them in touch with http://www.AutismOklahoma.org if they are not already involved. If you live in another state or location, seek out an autism support group in your area.
Hat tip to my wife for sharing this video. She and her church nursery workers provided child care this evening for parents of children with autism to have a Valentine’s Day night out. I’m thankful for the blessing those nursery workers shared tonight with many of our Oklahoma families touched by autism. There is tremendous power and value in collaborating and networking together to better understand and address challenges like autism.
