Today’s Autism fact is one that I feel is extremely important and very commonly ignored.
Autism affects roughly 2,000,000 people in the United States alone. Each one of those people touched by Autism, it’s impacted in a different way. Simply because two people share the same diagnosis, doesn’t mean they share all the same symptoms and characteristics.
Every person with Autism has their own personality and unique state of being.
Assuming that everyone with Autism is the same is completely erroneous. Each person is unique and very likely has unique needs.
It’s best to recognize every person with Autism as a unique individual and get to know them for who they are. While there are often commonalities amongst people with Autism, Autism by its very nature is a spectrum disorder, meaning everyone has the potential to be affected differently.
