So I’ve been wanting to do a thread about Autism as some of you are aware I have a thing called “Aspergers and high functioning autism” over the next 5 days I’ll bring you a fact about it! Needs a lot more awareness!
Autism is a lifelong developmental disability which affects how people communicate and interact with the world. One in 100 people are on the autism spectrum and there are around 700,000 autistic adults and children in the UK.
We may repeat a lot of what we say and do, And a lot of us, Don’t like change one bit! How does that relate to my life you ask, well Take Football in March Covid but a stop to it all, And it’s fair too say I struggled massively without it! I’d wake up in fear And Anxiety #Autism
Autistic people may experience over or under sensitivity to sounds, touch, tastes, smells, light, colours, temperatures or pain. For example, we may find music in a restaurant,which other people ignore or block out, To much, This can cause anxiety, And distress 1/2 @Autism
Many autistic people prefer not to hug due to discomfort, which can be misinterpreted as being non friendly. 2/2 #Autism @Autism
