Autism: 'We are extraordinary people capable of extraordinary things'
This first-hand account of experiencing school with autism stresses the need for better understanding of the condition
"I now know I should never have tried to fit in, but instead embraced my condition. It has helped me gather more friends, build a better relationship with my family, read more.
Most importantly, it has given me a new direction to help others see themselves more clearly.
I am glad of my condition and that I have been able to put my past struggles to good use.
Being diagnosed with autism is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I am not simply a “broken normal”.
We are extraordinary people capable of extraordinary things."
We couldn't have put it better ourselves!
