Autism is a common neurotype. Forget all those misleading stats – the majority go undiagnosed.
I wasn’t diagnosed until my early forties, after struggling for decades. Many families with one diagnosed autistic have many more who unwittingly camouflage and fly under the radar. Yes, autism runs in the family. Don’t assume you’re neurotypical.
Society must learn that we all have different strengths, preferences, challenges, and HUMAN needs (not special needs)…
and END discrimination and bullying!
We must make the world a more inclusive and hospitable place for our neurodivergent children, so they can live and thrive as their authentic selves!
