I am an educational practitioner, mainly working with students with various Special Educational Needs. I have an educational and research background in psychology, primarily focusing on assessments and educational provisions for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders. My mission in life is to make people understand that individual and cultural differences should be explored and respected. This can be achieved (in part) through increasing people’s awareness of various disabilities, ways of thinking, religious beliefs, philosophical point of views and cultural beliefs.
This blog is primarily focused on spreading Autism Awareness and Acceptance through sharing my own views and experiences as someone who works with individuals with Autism and their families. I also write about my reactions toward TV programmes, research, news articles and books that I have come across. I do not have Autism but through my experiences and interactions with people who do, I have grown to be extremely passionate about the subject.
I am NOT claiming to be an expert on anything. However, I may post articles that could potentially challenge the current ways of thinking. I approach life with the belief that I am just a beginner in everything, still a learner yearning to take as much knowledge as possible whilst keeping a skeptical eye. Because of this, the entries that I write might include more questions than answers, leaving the reader to form their own opinion on the subject matter. The views presented on this blog are of my own, unless otherwise stated.
I urge you to post your reactions and comments as long as they are constructive and written in appropriate language.
