As an autistic person, people often make assumptions of what I’m capable of doing without asking me if I’m able to do. The “rain man” archetype can apply to some, but not to all. Autism is a spectrum and a lots of Autistic people learn to mask to cope with living in a neurotypical world. This Autism Awareness month even if you don’t know any autistic people, take a second to understand the condition more, as good place to start is with the National Autistic Society, not the organisation Autism Speaks as they don't reprsent Autistis people well.
This was one of the Social Media campaigned I completed with World Wide Generation.
