Autism: “My Friends!”………..

Filed under: Uncategorized — C'hele @ 02:56

Once I become aquainted with an autistic student, I slowly start calling them “My friend”.  I do this intentionally.  If they don’t like my calling them My Friend, of course I will honour thier request.  Almost all the individuals I work with, end up love it when I call them “My Friend”.  I can almost always get help from any autistic individual once I have gained thier trust and respect and call them “My Friend”.  And believe me, they can be of great help in my job.  They love the feeling of being able to contribute any talents they may have towards anything that is meaningful and productive.

If you call an autistic individual “My Friend” and your statement does not match the sincerity in your eyes, you are dead in the water. Period.

These people are autistic.  Not stupid and I love them all.
