ME! As in, I’ve written the article. My very first print article. This is a big moment for me. I’m extremely proud. And I’m grateful that Latina magazine gave me the opportunity to share a little of our autism journey…in my own words.
Within the Latino community there is so much stigma regarding disability and mental illness. There is fear, sadness, shame and misunderstanding. None of this will help our kids or parents hearing the words “your child has autism” for the very first time.
