Autism Awareness Month Blog Hop and Giveaway – April 2018

Autism Fact:

Only 16% of autistic adults in the UK are in full-time paid employment and only 32% are in some kind of paid work.


I’m delighted to be taking part in the annual Autism Awareness Month Blog Hop organised by RJ Scott.

Many thanks to RJ for inviting me to take part in this event to raise awareness.


Every Child Matters!

I’m dedicating this post to my nephew, Daniel.

He was diagnosed with autism when he was two.

He’s now fifteen and has attended a wonderful school for children with special needs since he was eleven.


Based on the school’s learning policy these are my hopes for Daniel and other children with autism.


I hope they are taught within a creative, nurturing environment.

I hope they receive an enriching educational experience.

I hope they have the opportunity to develop a sense of personal-worth and confidence.

I hope they develop self-esteem.

I hope they fulfil their academic potential.

I hope they develop the independence skills they require to move confidently into the next phase of their lifelong learning pathway.

I hope they develop an awareness of themselves as individuals.

I hope they learn how to make knowledgeable and balanced lifestyle choices.

I hope they recognise and achieve their own personal goals and thrive within a global community.

I hope they become successful, independent citizens.



I’m offering a choice of ebook from my back catalogue as a prize to one winner.
