Hey everyone! I have a 3 year old son with Autism, and along with some family members I'm putting on a big fundraiser for Autism Speaks at the end of August. I'm looking for your favorite inspirational autism quotes, something that touched you, gave you hope, made you cry, anything at all. I'm using these quotes for autism as centerpieces for the tables. Thanks
Amber

I will ask the people I know who have autism as well as people w/kids who have autism as well for their favorite autism quotes :)

Hi Amber,

Great idea.

Some of my favorite autism quotes:
My son has autism, but autism doesn't have him.

Autism Rocks!
(and rolls and spins and flaps and loves and laughs)

The path I travel is lit by those who came before me, and it will shine brighter for those who follow me.

See my potential.

Have a wonderful fundraiser!

Sheila

Thank you all so much!! I thought coming up with 30+ autism quotes would be a lot easier than it has been. Thanks again!

I would look up some quotes on autism from Temple Grandin, she's got some really quotes. One of my favorite autism quotes I heard from our OT "Flapping makes me happy". She saw that once on a t-shirt a lady had made.
