Always Unique Totally Interesting Sometimes Mysterious

Well if that isn’t the truth.

  • Always Unique – I have heard it said that if you meet a child with Autism, you have met ONE child with Autism. Because Autism is a spectrum disorder, each child is completely different. Although they may display some of the same behaviors, they are completely unique.
  • Totally Interesting – Each of the kids I work with are very interesting indeed! Each of them make me smile, laugh, cringe, cuss (under my breath of course), and entertain me!
  • Sometimes Mysterious – I catch myself wondering what in the world these kids are thinking. At night… when I am lying in bed, I often catch myself smiling at the thought of these kids and what they must think of us!

I wish, at times, that I could be more specific when talking about these kids. I have so many wonderful stories about each of them, but privacy keeps my lips sealed. Just know… that they are my heart and soul… they are a good reason to get up in the morning … and I will do everything I can to make their journey with Autism a little easier.

    I use that saying all the time! I always have people assume that my child is brilliant at math or some form of music or that he will be cured with a special diet. As a parent, it is heartwarming to know you care so much for the kids you work with. I think the teacher and aides spend more time with our kids than we do! Love the blog!!

  2. A lot of people relate Autism to “Rainman”. I guess that is why they assume that people with Autism ALL have some special gift. In a way, all of them do, but it is finding it that is the trick. They may be able to spot a missing letter from the alphabet in an instant, but are non-verbal, so you would never know.

    We definitely spend a lot of independent time with your kids, but nothing takes the place of the parent.

    Hi, I have twins with Autism and just LOVE this saying!!! If I want to use this saying on something is there a trademark/ license agreement that anyone knows of?

    • I have not seen a trademark or license, so as long as you don’t credit yourself with it, then it should be okay to use… but you may want to check the legalities.
