How to change my sons view of being Autistic?
Hi, my 12yo son has always struggled to understand himself. He is very stubborn and isn't always open to listening. His mental health is low (getting help) and on his low/bad days he crys and says he hates his Autism. This makes me so sad. I am needing new ideas or suggestions how to help him accept himself. He was diagnosed when he was about 3 years old so it isn't new. After lockdowns and starting yr 7 this year, things are going backwards. I am at a loss. I feel I have failed him in not knowing how to ease his mind.
