Like Asperger (Self Diagnostic) can tell that to have a different mind is really a gift !
The problem is to understand like your mind works.
You had learned when you were a child from other people that are different from you (Normal Type) and are 99% of people ( autistic are 1% of population).
You need to learn from specific schools for Autistic from people that are autistic themself.
When you are adult you have to learn social skills from mind that have specific areas in the brain that you haven't so you can't to use your different mind for social skills.
If you learn in child age from other autistic people that have social skills should be all more easy.
Now I want to learn all is possible about Asperger and after learn social skills from other but in Asperger way ( we use so much pictures and images for everything ).
I have discovered that my difficulty to learn listening and speaking English (I'm italian) is because my Asperger mind.
So we need to create specific schools and classes for Autistic people to learn social skills and other stuff.
Im a wierdo I can speak English fluently but I cant speak my native language unlike English I've been taught my native language for over 9 years now and still I sometimes have tough time pronouncing words in my native language can someone tell me what's goin on?
I can see the burnout on her countenace, I know how much of a burden can aspergers be just doing minimal stuff is hell on earth and look at this amazing human, succesfull while holding this disorder, she deserves all the fucking respect in the world, she's brave AF

Troll Teller spelling is not what causes a mental issue dumbass. Not even having a disability does either. It's Betta like you that have mental issues because you say your normal because your not autistic. You are lel.LOL😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
I have Aspergers and it is mostly a blessing but also a curse. It makes you think outside the box and see errors and other issues that other's don't see in production or will help you invent better ideas, but it also makes you loathe social interaction and makes you feel isolated. I learned to cope with it through simple observation at a young age.
I’m Autistic only mild hey Normal people hate us when I hear about it what autism is I think what they say is more so sounding like people who hate us. Like no. Sympathy or how to relate we know more about them than they do us. I sound crazy
I want all kids to have what my son now has. The "experts" said my son would need to be institutionalized. They were wrong. Ryan is now an aerospace engineer because we treated his autism medically, behaviorally and educationally. And what I wanted most for my son actually happened. He is happy, has friends and is leading a typical life. There is a preview of my book I KNOW YOU'RE IN THERE that is Ryan's story on Amazon ( http://a.co/avS0m5U) or my Website (www.autism-and-treatment.com)
I want to thank all persons with autism who have spoken out about their condition, especially I thank Dr Grandin. She has made it possible for me to understand my daughter better. My daughter has profound autism and it affects every area of her life. Thank you so much Dr Grandin. The things you do really DO make a difference!!! 💝
I love representation of autism in media because I'm autistic myself, but I feel like the stereotype that a spectrum is a sort of "thermometer" would be completely false- I feel like it's more of a color wheel, where everyone has different colors, and different difficulties. I dont consider any autism to be "worse" than another, it's just how people perceive that. they think nonverbal and rocking is a "curse" of some sort too. and it makes me sad that people put down autistics because they don't think the autistic person can do anything! but everyone has their own abilities and struggles and I feel like there needs to be more attention to THAT rather than the "thermometer spectrum" analogy.
I feel like a trash parent bc my child may be autistic. We've taken the M-chat-r and hes at high risk he has all the red flags and eventhough he is getting therapy and im pushing to get him diagnosed (too difficult tool do and too many fights that have to bee fought) I dont know what im doing. I dont know if im helping him. Im at a loss when it comes to him and I feel like im failing him. I dont know what to do. I hope he can have a future like her.
My Autistic Daughter graduated from high school with honors went on to a degree in journalism. Thanks to your teachings but although she functions well she has anxiety alot and her social skills have improved immensely. I thankyou for that I totally admire you :)
I was diagnosed as a child and again as an adult to confirm the diagnosis of autism. And, I, too, didn't speak for years, at first (until age 5). And, now, you can't shut me up. Lol. I talk about mechanics, Science, coding, art, music, poetry, autism advocacy, and talk to teach safety away from domestic violence for those in situations of domestic violence I started doing after I got my certification as a volunteer domestic violence advocate. I, too, cannot do Algebra as well, but can do Trig. And if I can hear what us said in any languange, I can emulate how it is verbalised and even become mildly fluent in it. I have perfect pitch (both when hearing sounds and when singing, though the singing took most of my life to get to that level. That part of having it wasn't a gift from autism. But, the discerning perfect pitch in speech and singing of/by anyone is).
Max The Great Albert Einstein did have a disability while in the public school system he knew he was meant for greater things. He believed that public schools were a fraud and what he had to offer the world would offer truth in what is all around us.
Kristy Lukic I never made any statements about Einstein's mental state. Now that we are, are you trying to argue that he was a normal person? I know almost everyone was bullied, but there's actual information about what he was like as a kid, and it shows why he was bullied.
There are different levels of autism. Growing up my family had no understanding of autism. The school system saw most as having behavioral issues or learning disabilities. I'm high functioning autistic. Looking at me you can't see it so it made it very hard placing or diagnosing my issues in which I needed counseling and guidance. I felt different and isolated. But managed because survival does this. I never wanted a label And still do not. I do however have another disorder that faced me to accept it and be more open about it rather than be embarrassed of it. I see myself as a survivor. I came this far and have helped myself in controlling the hard parts of autism. I am high functioning but it still can be hard at times.
My daughter has autism, we started therapy at about 6 months old. She did not start talking until about 3 years old. We started with sitting up, she hated that. Then we looked for any kind of therapy we could find. then had speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, horseback riding, even interaction therapy. We went to see Temple Grandin. Now my daughter is 22, in college studying computer graphics and has been accepted into an internship. I never thought that would happen. The amount of therapy you use is amazing
The different therapists had training, we did not. We were with her, when she was with the therapists. So, we helped with exercises they gave her. We both helped her with speech therapy, I even got a horse and helped her ride horses, for several years. That was one thing I knew how to do. I have given horseback riding lessons before. She loved horses. Her improvement was amazing. We never stopped complementing her, for any progress she made. When she did learn to talk, she never stopped. To be honest, she was the reason, we did not have a second child. We were so focused on her, we didn't have time for a second child. Like I said before, therapy is wonderful, and we engaged in the therapy with her.
Why didn't you just teach the child like the therapist did? Why did it take someone else to do it I don't get it? Did you not read to the child or something? Which parent wasn't helping the kid with their speech surely it wasn't you? The father???
