Join the Silent Awareness Challenge

A challenge created by a mother who has a son with autism to raise awareness and empathy for those who struggle to communicate, like her boy.

Are you willing to join the challenge?



Our son’s biggest challenge is communication, and we can imagine how frustrating this must be for him. So in an effort to walk in his shoes, we would like you to join us in what I call the “Silent awareness challenge.”

Pick a specific amount of time you commit not to communicate – no speaking, no texting, no signing…..

Share your experience.  Challenge others. 

Increase awareness, understanding and empathy.

So many of us face communication barriers, not just those with Autism, so I imagine you may be able to relate to this and join this challenge.

Thank you!


Count me in!

Pick an amount of time you commit not to speak, text, or sign.

Share your experience and invite others to create awareness and acceptance of those with communication barriers.

Look who's in!
