Understanding person’s living with Autism…..

Imagine you wearing a virtual headset and you’re in a world a little more vibrant. Sounds sharper, colours richer, details more captivating. That’s how some people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) experience life.

It’s not a disability, but a different way of seeing the world.

Experts define Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) as a developmental disability caused by differences in the brain.

Simply put, living with autism means your brain works in a different way from other people.

Think of your chatty friend, who you sometimes love to listen to, yet runs away from when the handshake is getting beyond the elbow. Now imagine someone who finds small talk overwhelming. When they express their frustration, how do you treat them?

People with ASD might find social situations tricky – deciphering eye contact, jokes, or sarcasm can be challenging. But that doesn’t mean they’re unfriendly! They might just express themselves differently.

If you’re a book lover, you know you get lost in a good book, right? People with ASD can have intense interests, diving deep into dinosaurs, music, or trains. This focus fuels their passions and makes them incredible experts in their chosen fields.

So, the key to understanding someone with ASD is simple;

Patience and a willingness to see the world through their eyes.

Take note;

  • They like things a certain way because routines comfort them.
  • Loud noises can be overwhelming.

Let’s embrace their unique perspective, not try to “fix” it.

On Autism Awareness Day, let’s come together to raise awareness, foster acceptance, and appreciate the uniqueness of individuals with autism. Let’s guide them from mere survival to thriving, celebrating their strengths and creating a world where everyone, regardless of neurodiversity, is valued and empowered to flourish.
