A Simple Definition of Avatar

Hinduism: the human or animal form of a Hindu God on earth.

:someone who represents a type of person, an idea or a quality.

 

​I have "Avatar" tattooed on my arm for my Autistic son, Phoenix.

When asked about it I explain that it symbolizes that I am all knowing but still learning.

 I am an Avatar 4 Autism with over 20 years representing and learning from my son. 

All the while I am listening  to and observing the world, both autistic and 'neurotypical".


A Simple Definition of Neurotypical

Not displaying or characterized by autistic or other neurologically atypical patterns

of thought or behavior.

​"neurotypical individuals often assume that their experience of the world is either

the only one or the only correct one".


   I approach Phoenix's autism with my eyes, mind and heart wide open.

 I am resilient and expect the unexpected.

When asked, I give advice to others living within the world of Autism.

Sometimes it feels like we are in another universe. I see solutions where others only see problems.​​

I have discovered that the easiest way to solve a problem is to first accept it

and consider if it really is a problem or if it's just the way.

I tell my son that he is a V.I.P.​

​ A Very Important Phoenix.

​As he is. As I am.
