Autism - Can You Make It Till The End

Autism - Can You Make It Till The End

Understand autism, the person and what to do. I’m not naughty. I’m autistic. For autistic people like me, the world can be a terrifying place. Sometimes sounds feel like my head is exploding. Clothes feel like my skin is burning. And when a tiny thing changes, it feels like my world is ending. Sometimes I get too much information. And if you only see a naughty kid, you haven’t got enough.

Autism Meltdown At The Mall - What Would You Do?

When we tell people our son is autistic and has terrible tantrums, some people tell us: "Every kid throws tantrums and breaks things."

"I thought that was the reason he stopped talking and making eye contact and stopped socializing," she said. She later learned, after a lengthy evaluation, that her son was on the autism spectrum. She said that because he is nonverbal, it makes it difficult for her to know what he needs. And because socialization can be a challenge for kids with autism, it can be difficult for her...
