“Adults keep saying we owe it to the young people to give them hope. But I don’t want your hope. I don’t want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. And, then I want you to act. I want you to act as if you would in a crisis. I want you to act as if the house was on fire. Because it is.” ~ Greta Thunberg . . Today is Earth Day. 🌎 We’re sharing the words that 16-year-old Greta Thunburg delivered at the World Economic Forum in Davis this past January in an impassioned plea for action to work together to address climate change. Greta’s collective efforts inspired a global school walkout on March 15th ~ and she has been nominated to a Nobel Peace Prize. This soft-spoken Swedish teen has taken a keen interest in climate change since she was 9 years old. The intense focus on a special interest is not uncommon for children like Greta who are diagnosed with a form of autism. Her research and discussions with leaders ensure she is informed and prepared as she lights up children and adults to the facts and timeline to preserve our beautiful planet. #BeautifullySaid by #gretathunberg #climateactivist #teengirl #autistic #climatechangeisreal #savetheplanet #earthday2019 #quotabelle

Today we took my 9 yr old to see her childhood favourite remake @dumbo which was such a brilliant remake.. many of you know my middle daughter has level 3 Autism - what you may not know is often Autistic children struggle with their physical abilities including the way they hold pencils which affects their neatness.. but miss 9 was determined to do her absolute best in this colour competition thanks to @event_cinemas and dumbo being different just like her was a real treat! And look how incredible she did 🙌🏼🙌🏼 She loved that the story focussed on how many captive animals are so poorly treated and as a young budding conservationist it really touched her heart to see Dumbo reunite with his mum where they then found themselves returned to the jungle with their herd! 😍🐘🐘🐘🐘🙌🏼👌🏼 this was so important to her and something she will talk about for a long time to come! Thanks so much @disney for such an incredible remake!! And thanks to event cinemas for the chance to enter this piece! ❤️☺️🐘😍 and definitely go see Dumbo if you haven’t yet! IT IS AMAZING!! #DumboSoarsIntoEvent #asd #colouringincompetition #sohappy #shedidamazing

Stephen is my older brother and he’s severely autistic. It’s funny because when we were younger I was convinced that he was only mildly on the spectrum. Looking back now, I can see that’s because growing up together we developed a language that meant we could communicate. The language mostly consists of: 1. Saying quotes from TV shows he likes. 2. Talking about the new toys/figures he’s added to his collection. 3. Playing board games he likes. This badboy is the Pac-Man board game circa 1980. We play almost every time I come home to visit because it’s the easiest way for us to reconnect. It gives him time to feel more comfortable about me being home, it gives him the opportunity to make eye contact with me and it reminds him that I’m the same person I was the last time I visited! Thanks Pac-Man. This weekend I’m running the London Marathon for the National Autistic Society.
