You may think you know what Autism looks like, or maybe you’ve never been exposed to a person with Autism. Over 1% of the population is currently diagnosed, and that number is growing each year. Autism is not one specific diagnosis, but rather a “spectrum” of behaviors and/or symptoms that fit within a similar range. If you have met one person with Autism….. you have met ONE person with Autism. You can’t take one person’s experience and lay it on another, because there is so much difference across the spectrum.

The best video I have seen to date was done in the UK by a young lady named Rosie. I hope you’ll take the time to sit here and watch:
