Monique Cain - The Everyday Autism Series by Autism Behavioural Intervention Association published on 2018-04-16T04:35:08Z In 2015 a five-year-old informed Monique Cain that her daughter Madie was ‘dumb’ and ‘didn’t know anything’. Heartbreaking, gobsmacking, and confounding, the comment got Monique thinking. How could she convey to others that Madi was different not dumb; that her autism might make her act differently, but she has the same need for inclusion and kindness, the same requirement to belong and be loved. How could Monique help others see the Madi she saw: a courageous, valuable treasured, capable and unique child? In this podcast Monique Cain talks about creation of The Everyday Autism Series, a set of children’s picture books that provide an understanding of autism through a child’s eyes. Tune in to hear Monique & Madi’s story. Hear how Monique courageously turned a negative into a positive.
