Autisme Workshop by The National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM)

Some of us are born more special than others.

Why can you see and I cannot?

Why am I born with autism while you are not?

Why is my world different than yours?

Why? Why? Why?

Often, when we are blessed with a special child or sibling, we ask ourselves - why me? [because we're the choosen ones :P because only God knows that we're capable to handle this greatest gift] What have I done wrong? [ wrong? it is a test from God, and he ~ my autism child is the BEST thing ever happened to me!] But did it ever occur to us that this very same thought may just be going through the mind of our special child or sibling? [ I don't know.. ] What then do we do or how do we go about helping our special sibling get on in their life? [ I don't know..]

My oh my. Many questions pop-up in my mind about autisme and My dear Idris. For this purpose as well, I might be joining NASOM's workshop which is will held on 18 & 19 July 2009 at Petaling Jaya.
