By Morgan Andreanopoulos,
Everyone has a “why.” You may have a why behind the location where you live, the clothing you wear, the people you spend time with and the profession you have.
For World Autism Awareness Day, our staff are sharing their “why” statements. Each statement covers one of the following: why they are driven to impact the lives of the clients each day, why they enjoy working in the field of ABA or why autism awareness is important to them.
“My passion has always been to work with, and advocate for, young people.”
“I started Cornerstone for my son. I wanted a special place for him to learn, and I continue to do what I do so kids like him have the same opportunity.”
“It’s in my DNA. I knew I wanted to do something like this when I was only 6 years old.”
“To teach our clients to be brave and achieve anything they want is why I love what I do.”
“I love the field of ABA because every day is different.”
“Our clients change my life for the better. It’s my duty to do the same for them.”
“When a flower doesn’t bloom, you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower — that’s why I do ABA.”
“Autism Awareness is important because with awareness comes appropriate interactions and understanding of people with autism in our communities.”
There are over a hundred written statements across all Cornerstone locations, and yet we know this does not even sum up everyone’s reason why they want to impact the lives of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We would love to hear your “why” this April for Autism Awareness Month. Please tag us in your “why” statements and be sure to set your post to public. You can also email your statements to us by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org. Cornerstone can’t wait to hear WHY you want to spread awareness and love for those with autism.
