Stunning photos could change the way you see children with autism

How do you describe a child with autism? In the past, the words the world has used have not always been kind, and even as we learn more and more about autism spectrum disorder, the new language around ASD still leaves out one very important thing: the children themselves. Too often when we talk about ASD, we resort to describing the disorder and not the people. Glenn Gameson-Burrows knows firsthand how stereotypes and myths can deter from the conversation: His own daughter Aneira was diagnosed with ASD. What better way to show people the person behind the diagnosis than to, well… show them? The dad and photographer shared his stunning series of photos with SheKnows to do just that.
