Autism is looking at the world from a different angle.
Autism is different not less
Autism is a challenge, a gift and a curse

In my life Autism is...
  • A High School honor student
  • A different way of seeing the world
  • Communicating using smiles, gestures, pictures, sounds, cries
  • Frustrating when you don't understand
  • Joyful when you do understand
  • Ministers, teachers, professors, politicians, actors
  • Exploring the world of the senses
  • Learning to get along with lots of different people
  • Having fun together
  • Being alone - sometimes lonely sometimes peaceful
  • Being aware of the beauty of the very smallest particle of dust or the sparkle of the lights
  • Being overwhelmed
Autism is a way of being human
