30 Faces of Autism – Day 29 | Southern Maryland Child Photographer | Autism Awareness

Children with autism are not so different than any other child. They want love. They want acceptance. They want to belong. They are wonderful and bring so much joy and laughter to everyone who takes the time to enter their world. They are smart, talented and creative…though it might not always be obvious all the time.

Jeremiah is 6 years old and in Kindergarten. He has a brother named Josiah and a sister named Ava. He doesn’t have any pets yet, but has been asking for a fish. He was diagnosed with autism when he was 3 years old.

Jeremiah likes playing at the park, blowing bubbles, and swimming. His favorite places to go are the beach and aquarium.

He’s really good at running and not so good at writing. His favorite food is fish, and like many children doesn’t like eating vegetables, especially carrots.

Jeremiah’s parents think he will grow up to do something science related. He loves books about coral reefs, ocean life, and fish. He also loves watching documentaries on ocean life.

Jeremiah is a strong energetic child. He’s has communication challenges which have at times caused behavior issues at home. All in all, he is just a child who wants to be loved and feel included just like any other child.
