I think theres a very common and very inaccurate misconception about people with #Autism. Many people think that children and adults with #Autism somehow are incapable of feeling or showing emotions.
I want to point out with a specific example how this is not necessarily true.
Emmett absolutely loves his dog Bella. He shows her empathy and compassion as she’s recovering from her recent surgery. He missed her while she was gone and was overjoyed upon her return.
He’s concerned that she’s in pain and worried that her boo boos aren’t getting better.
It’s so important to remember that simply because someone doesn’t express or perceive emotions the same as you or I, doesn’t mean they are emotionless. People are all different and feel and perceive the world in different ways.
You should never make assumptions when it comes to#Autism.
