Advocacy

Parents with extensive knowledge of autism have the potential to become great advocates. Adults and children on the spectrum need more advocates to bridge the gap between the need and the accessibility of services. Here is a little poem about what advocacy means:

Advocacy

Acknowledgement of issues and varying viewpoints
Dedication and Determination
Volunteerism
Organization
Communication
Activism
Compassion
Youth or youthful energy
