Beware the expert
What you test is what you get
Labels are for cans
Treat the individual, not the disorder
A child is a child is a child
When you've seen one child with autism, you've seen one child with autism
Love that kid or get the hell out
None of us is as smart as all of us
That child is not here to live up to your expectations
Your first job is to make that kid feel good about themselves
Focus on strengths to improve weaknesses
Follow the child's lead
