Like all of us, every individual with ASD is unique. Having a label doesn’t mean you fit into a mould. To know a person with autism is exactly that, you know ONE person with Autism. It’s a huge spectrum, they are all different and special in their own way. Although they may see and respond to the world differently, their needs and desires are just the same as ours. They just need our understanding, respect and guidance to achieve what we often take for granted. Give them this and take the time to get to know them, see their strengths and and you will have the most loyal friend/employee you could wish for.
I believe this goes for anyone with a disability. Without awareness, we can’t have understanding and barriers will continue to exist. Let’s hope The Periscope Crew can crush some of those barriers together.
