“Genius. It is just attention to something specific. That’s all it is. Law of Attraction makes it happen, and so anyone who gives attention to any subject for a period of time will evolve in the direction of that understanding.” — Abraham (from Abraham-Hicks)
Julie’s comment: Parents are powerful creators in the autism movement. Your attention and focus on what is important to you – understanding autism and your child’s condition – makes you geniuses. Don’t let anyone discount your knowledge of autism because you don’t have a PhD or medical degree. Simply your attention to the subject and intention to understand it makes you brilliant and worthy. Indeed, all great theories on autism that have propelled our understanding forward stemmed from parents: their curiosity, courage, and experience.
