April is Autism Awareness Month :)


Hello my lovelies :) I've been meaning to post something for Autism Awareness Month, but I haven't had the chance to do so. But I told myself, I have to get it done before Arif's birthday, which is on April 30th. Can you believe it, he will be turning three soon!

Since Arif's autism diagnosis in October last year, Arif has been attending occupational therapy and he is showing many positive signs of progress. He also started speech therapy early last month and we are so happy for him.

I recently came across this great article about autism awareness in Malaysia, and if you're interested to know more about autism, it's a must read. Click here to read it. It talks about stigma and misconceptions, as well as lack of expertise and opportunities, which are just some of the challenges faced by people with autism.
