Autism stands for:
Always Unique Totally Intelligent Sometimes Mysterious 😁
Parents and Guardians of autistic children have a difficult job of raising a child that cannot socially interact or learn from society’s Norms and expected behaviour.
Uniqueness is not a disability.. it can be an asset to an individual. Being unique is what makes an individual be different from everyone else.
Around 10% of autistic people have incredible abilities due to the nature of autistic spectrum disorder. These individuals are called savants and often their incredible talents are nurtured from a young age.
Autism is a developmental disorder that affects 1/100 people. Symptoms of autism include difficulty in social interaction and communication due to restricted and repetitive patterns of behaviour. Many people do not realise how many people around them are actually autistic. All autistic children grow up to be autistic adults..
Autism has affected over 700,000 people in the UK as of 2018. This means that over 2.8 million people have a relative who is autistic.
Autism is incurable however can be alleviated by much support from the community and parents. However there are many social problems that society causes through ignorance or lack of caring.
Over 34 percent of children say that their school environment is worse than what they expect and that other children pick on them due to a disability..
Over 70 percent of autistic adults say they don’t get any help or support..
Only 16 percent of autistic adults are in full time work that is paid..
If the treatment is incurable it’s up to society to adjust to a condition that is caused by nature and not upto the individual who is born with a natural condition
