Meet Arie

Just as our boy reached 18 months of age the few words he held vanished and what replaced this was a constant hum ‘our little humbug’ His eye contact was no longer, and he became unresponsive to his name. 

#Autism was always a lingering thought but the confirmation from Arie’s Paediatrician brought a flood of  1,573,638 different emotions. 

For those who know Arie, he needs little introduction. His joyful stimming lights up any room and brings a smile to our family and friends faces,  each and every time!

For those who don’t know Arie, he always seems to manage to draw attention with his excited stomping and smiles! 

Unbeknown to Arie, most children his age long to play with him, we watch as they eagerly follow him around shouting his name , they are so intrigued by his ‘unique’ ways of ‘play’ and independence. 

Though life isn’t always so rosey, well if I’m honest at 2 and half years old it’s a quite frankly a nightmare! 80% of the time we battle with sensory overload and the most simplistic of tasks, such as moving away from the bright lights of a vending machine can take what seems like hours to avoid meltdowns. 

What’s difficult in these times is the overall lack of understanding of others around us ….coupled with the absence of practical support groups that allow autistic people and carers of young children to reach out to people in a similar boat! 

Even the kindest of people wanting to offer their help , using the ‘typical’ distraction techniques for toddlers have little understanding that this can actually makes the situation worse and ten times harder

To those people who judge , tut, shake their heads and murmur under their voices……#autism is beautiful yet sometimes ugly. Particularly to those who don’t understand it fully!  

I want to help others see the beauty of autistic boys, girls, men and women and to ensure our boy Arie ‘our humbug’ gets the best possible start to life in a world of  ‘a-typical’ 🌎 

Let’s start by taking ‘big steps for little feet’ 🦶 and #walkforautism together! 

I'm walking for our son

I’ve stepped up to Walk for Autism to help raise the awareness but most importantly in support of our son Arie who received an early diagnosis at 2 years old in 2021.

My mission is to help increase the awareness and to raise the profile of Autism so we can improve the understanding and increase early intervention and support from young children and adults alike. 

I’ll be challenging myself to walk 10,000 steps every day for 8 days while raising much needed funds to support autistic people in the UK and Ireland.

Help make my steps count and show your support by donating today!

Thank you for helping me to spread autism acceptance and understanding.
