I am not autistic, but I have worked with individuals who are autistic. The youngest I worked with was 8 years old while the oldest I have worked with being 22 years of age. Whether these individuals are high functioning or low functioning, they are one of the most hard working, awesome, smartest people I have ever met. I just wish society would see that too. Anywho, thanks to April being National Autism Awareness month and April 2nd being World Autism Day, hopefully it will bring Autism the rightful recognition it deserves.
