    My son is 19 with Autism and he’s very intelligent but struggles in many areas as well. We have worked very hard to help him understand that being Autistic doesn’t in any way mean being stupid. Very proud of him and how hard he works every day.

    Our two grands (4&5) are autistic with high IQ and large vocabulary etc and I even had one specialist at a PPT meeting ask me if I’m sure the oldest is autistic even though she stems etc bc she taught herself to read at age 4 and is ahead of her “normal “ kindergarten class

    People on the spectrum are just as much unique individuals as people who are not on the spectrum. Everyone is different. Everyone is unique.
