The World of Autism
The truth is it must be awful to have autism in some parts of the world. I don't forget my good luck in that if I had to have autism it was in the U.S. I am well aware how my life could have been in a lot of other lands. Since even here people confuse not speaking with retardation, I can only imagine how tough it would be to have no one have time, resources, or social support to help. Then I guess it's a life of stagnation in an institution or worse. Now I see my blog gets world viewers which is pretty cool. I don't know how autistic people are treated in these countries. I do hope that my words help in starting to make a new way to hear what autism is for many of us.
