Raising Awareness: Lasting Effect

Dirt Track Racing: A Fun Escape

Father and Dirt Track Racer Raises Awareness for Autism

Here is one of many examples of people doing their part in trying to raise awareness. I would like to think that this article that I have provided a link for will be another reminder to my blog readers out there that there are people who care about issues relating to Autism Awareness. Every once in a while we will hear stories of this occurring, and it can only serve to help our community.

Eddie Doggett is a dirt track racer who loves doing what he does. He loves to race out on the dirt track and entertain the people who watch him race. It's a fun hobby of Eddie's as he clearly enjoys racing, but for this year there has been a serious topic he's been wanting to address, and that would be relating to Autism Awareness. Eddie happens to have a son of his own who was diagnosed with autism when he was only 3 years of age. It's Eddie's love and commitment to his son that he goes out to the racetrack, so he has an admirable cause for racing.

This blog entry I believe is aimed at family members and friends who are associated with those who are on the Autism Spectrum. Hasn't there ever been a time when you felt like you wanted to do something special for your family relative or friend who is autistic? Have you ever felt like you could be doing something to help improve the well being of that relative or friend? Is there an underlying message that you want to send to masses of people, and yet, you don't quite know how to get that message out? Consider the example I just showed you in Eddie Doggett and perhaps you will consider taking on similar tasks in order to raise Autism Awareness.

When You Say You Support Someone, Actually Mean It

The headline in bold pretty much speaks for me. When you say you support someone, actually mean it. Actually mean what you say about your family relative or friend when you claim that you are going to help. When you claim that you are going to do everything in your power to help raise Autism Awareness, try your best to actually follow through with it. Stay true to your word. Let your actions speak the loudest. It won't matter what your words say if your actions don't back your words up.

Being aware of someone having autism is simply not enough. Being aware of autistic traits and habits is only one of many steps of getting to understand, respect and address topics related to autism. It's hard for some people to get a real good grip on what autism is about and how much of an impact it has on people's lives. For those of us who are autistic, we may have our own ways of receiving information and translating it in our rewired minds, but we would appreciate it if we weren't talked down to nor treated as disposable assets. Above all else, we're people just like you.

Links to My Autism Articles

My work as a freelance writer hardly ever rests, and more recently I have been acquiring more work in the field of writing. This is a positive turn of events for me in my career as a writer, and I couldn't have been more happy than to officially provide my own opinions to topics that relate to the ones that I describe here on The Autistic Help blog. I would certainly like to thank Sabrina for hiring me to write these articles. It was a very enjoyable experience on my part.

I wrote 8 articles on topics that center around the Autism Spectrum, and people who are either autistic or have Asperger's Syndrome. To the best of my ability, I wrote these articles to provide my own perspective on how things go in everyday life as someone who is on the Autism Spectrum. There were some things about autism that I already knew, but there were a few things that I had to find out for myself via research because I didn't know too much about certain subjects.

In time these 8 articles will all be published on wittycoaching.com and I surely hope that you will stay tuned to read these articles. Keep a bookmark of wittycoaching.com if you need to. I believe these 8 articles are important because they go into great detail explaining both the triumphs and difficulties of the average autistic person. It's obvious that we are different compared to those who are not autistic, but that shouldn't stop us from achieving the goals that we set out for ourselves.

I guess you could say that these articles serve as concrete confirmation about my stance on topics that talk about Autism Awareness, and I hope that my readers will realize that I am serious about what I discuss here on this blog. I don't take any opportunities to talk about autism for granted. I know I have to be willing to step out and talk about these issues that concern me and many others like me. I hope that you will not only get something out of these articles (the ones in the link) but also broaden your view on such topics.

When I see my other articles get published on wittycoaching.com I will surely give you an update as quickly as I can. For now, feel free to view these first two articles. You are always welcome to comment on the content that I provide.

Contact Steven Vitte: I Will Help



I am well aware of the fact that I won't be able to touch on every single topic there is about the daily struggles autistic people face. I know that I won't be able to relate to everyone who is on the Autism Spectrum. Being someone who has Asperger's Syndrome, which is basically high-functioning autism, I may not be able to completely understand how it feels to go through some of the troubles that low-functioning autistic people go through each day.

I would like to view this blog, The Autistic Help, as one big learning experience for all of us, and while I can provide my own perspective on certain subjects, the fact remains that my story of how I got here and why I am posting these blog entries is only one of many stories. Knowing this, I want to be as open as I possibly can on the internet, whether it be on this blog or elsewhere, so I am encouraging my readers to open up and tell their stories to me about what goes on in their lives. Whether you are autistic yourself or you have a family relative or friend who is autistic, you are more than welcome to contact me or post comments on this blog.

I don't just want to post on The Autistic Help blog. I don't want this blog to be just about me. That was never my intention when I first started this blog. I want this blog to be a blog for the autistic community to build up together. I am an advocate of teamwork and I value the opinions of others. I want to hear from you, my readers. I want to know what goes on in your lives when it comes to subjects related to the Autism Spectrum. I want to process such information and then come up with my own opinion.

I really want there to be open conversations between people like myself and others like you. If you are willing to contact me, then you can contact me at any time. Here are some contacts you can use:

Twitter: StevenVitte_
Email: stevenvitte12@yahoo.com

I want to receive feedback from you

I want to develop more connections with the autistic community than I already have with this blog. I want to expand my territory and reach out to those who need help getting through some problems. If I can manage it, I would even like to attend some events that promote Autism Awareness, and these events don't necessarily need to be run by organizations like Autism Speaks, Autism Now, etc. I don't see why we can't come together and independently form our own Autism Awareness events given that we receive enough support for these events.


I leave it up to you to tell me whatever kinds of stories you want, as long as they relate to your condition on the Autism Spectrum. I want to hear from you and I will respond in some form. Just use one of the contacts I listed above and I will try my best to get back to you as soon as possible.
