An eight-year-old girl is changing the way people view autism through writing.
Cadence, who is from Queensland, is on the Autism Spectrum and her work is published through the blog I Am Cadence.
There she writes about why having autism does not make her special, just different, and questions why people see autism as a 'label'.
Most recently she wrote a heart-felt letter to the 'fairies' to ask them if there was an 'autism fairy'.

Cadence, 8, from Queensland has autism and shares her thoughts on the blog I Am Cadence
'Dear Fairies, I want to know please, is there an autism fairy?,' Cadence wrote.
'What is her job in fairyland? Can she visit me? I am Autism too.'
The full letter was shared by her mother Angela, who also shared the response from the 'Queen Fairy'.
'In fairyland, where your world ends and our magical one begins, physical and brain differences are not much thought about; they are just a part of each fairy’s unique way of being and doing,' it read.
