He Doesn’t Look Autistic 2016-09-20


This is something that I have been told many many times by people

and I know in many ways he doesn’t look any different to any other child of his age. If you look closely there are some subtle differences in the way that he acts, his mannerisms and the way that he makes eye contact (or doesn’t make eye contact).

Autism isn’t a physical disability, the vast majority of people with it won’t look any different to those without it, and many are able to mask the many signs very well so you would never know.

So please stop telling me my child looks normal, I know he does, but honestly you spend a day with him, or even an hour, and you will soon see what difficulties he has.

With that in mind I would like to share this image from Tumblr, the original link is below.
