The number one predictor of success for kids on the spectrum is hope

not sure where I heard this, I think it was Ned Baker, but I think about it every day. What does it mean to me? Hope that the challenges will be less challenging. Hope that everyone will appreciate the gifts of autism. Opportunities, relationships, acceptance. The belief that goals can and will be achieved. The belief that goals will be set higher and higher.
The belief that I- as mom, advocate, protector, am dispensable and will some day not be necessary.
