Autism must be explored by others, so they understand how we present. For those with Autism, we get a bad press because others find us intense and don’t understand us.
I have spent most of my life trying to adapt into a normal life with a neurological disability I didn’t know I had. My life would never be normal, but where disability is concerned, it’s not up to us to fit in, it’s up to others to make sure we’re inclusive.
It is important others are mindful of what Autism is and how we interact. Because we struggle to fit in, it makes it even more important for others to understand and want to help us. Others must want to know what we deal with.
The more others choose to learn about us, the more they will understand us. Once they become better at understanding, they will be better equipped to help us modify situations that cause us difficulties.
It is important others focus on what they know we can do, rather than what they know we struggle with.
