Today, April 2nd, marks a special day…the seventh annual World Autism Awareness Day. Lincoln’s PTA wants to say a very special thank you to all the teachers, staff, students, parents and friends who support our students living with Autism (both mainstream and special education) here at Lincoln every single day. We will never completely be able to understand what life is like for those living with Autism, but we are continuing to learn more about them and from them.
To the parents of our amazing students living with Autism…your bravery and dedication is unbelievably inspiring. Thank you for enduring and bringing your child to Lincoln every day. We know it’s not easy, but we hope it never goes unappreciated.
“Think of it: a disability is usually defined in terms of what is missing…But autism…is as much about what is abundant as what is missing, an over-expression of the very traits that make our species unique” – Paul Collins, Not Even Wrong: Adventures in Autism
