Throw out the Autism Books. ๐Ÿ“š

Youโ€™ll probably never read them anyway.

Itโ€™s okay.

The truth is, you didnโ€™t buy those books for information.

You bought them for the same reason I spent ๐Ÿ’ฐ attending continuing education courses for BCBAs.

You want to feel some relief from the fear of โ€œI don’t know what I’m doing.”

So you armor yourself with more information in hopes that it will alleviate the cloud of self doubt that has been stalking you since you child’s Autism diagnosis.  

Spoiler alert: it wonโ€™t work.

That is because information does not create self-confidence. 

Trust does.

โœ… Trust in yourself that you are the expert on your child.

โœ… Trust that you will make the next right decision.

โœ… Trust that you will listen to your instincts.

โœ… Trust that you can course correct at anytime.

โœ… Trust that you will have your own back no matter what.

You wonโ€™t find any of this in a book. ๐Ÿ“š

It is something you create for yourself with your thoughts.

But how???

Start with what you do know. ย 

You can do this by getting out a pen and paper ๐Ÿ“ and answering a few Powerful Questions, like the ones below. ย ย 

Be as specific as possible!

๐Ÿง What evidence do I have of my resourcefulness?
๐Ÿค” What do I know about my child?
๐Ÿค“ What have I already figured out?

Find as many examples as you can to get your brain focused onย what you do know.

This is the best book you will ever read about Autism.

Have a wonderful week!
