Autism Hall of Fame (Awetism Hall of Fame)'s Blog

This is the official blog of the Autism Hall of Fame (Awetism Hall of Fame)

True, but…

This is true. Bullies are always negative and focus on what they think their victims can’t do. But…

  1. So-called professionals can be very negative and prejudiced too. Quite a few of the people in our Hall of Fame have been told by doctors that they would never be able to do anything because of their condition and that they would have to accept it. Luckily they didn’t accept it and proved doctors completely wrong.
  2. “Different, not less” – even if you are indeed unable to do the things they list, you are valuable as you are. Your value is not in terms of “normality” or of what society expects of you. There might also be many things “you” can do better than “they”. Let’s focus on those things.

You are special because you are yourself, because you are unique, not because you are like everybody else.
