I’m walking for my big girl
As many of you know, my big girl has struggled for a long time and has recently been diagnosed with Autism and Epilepsy.
With the lack of recognition and understanding of how autism presents in girls, so many girls on the spectrum are going undiagnosed.
Many autistic girls and women are not receiving the supports and services they need throughout their lifetime and are at increased risk of misdiagnosis, abuse, financial hardship and social isolation. Add being Indigenous in to the mix and the statistics are dire.
I’ve stepped up to Walk for autism to help create a world where no-one on the autism spectrum is left behind.
I’ll be challenging myself to walk 10,000 steps a day for 8 days while raising much needed funds to support people on the autism spectrum.
An estimated 1 in every 70 people is on the autism spectrum. Along with their family members, this means autism is a part of daily life for over a million Australians.
People on the autism spectrum see, hear, feel and experience the world differently. For many, simply coping with the everyday can lead to confusion, anxiety and isolation.
By coming together and taking action, we can help provide opportunities for people on the autism spectrum to participate, engage and thrive in the world around them.
Help make my steps count and show your support by donating today!
