Autism 101 by Ryan Elizabeth Peete
If someone who has autism doesn’t respond right away when you speak to him, it doesn’t mean he’s being rude. Socializing can be challenging for people with autism.
Many people have trouble making friends, but it’s even harder for boys and girls with autism. Include people with autism even more than you would others.
We are all special in our own ways. Focus on what kids do well. Ask others about their strengths and acknowledge that everyone has strengths and weaknesses.
People with autism are exceptionally smart, but their brains are wired differently. It can take them longer to process information. Please be patient.
