Ridiculous Things People With Autism Wish You Wouldn’t Say

AUT_Blog_DTOP_BelowTitle_300x250

Though autism awareness has increased over the years, there are still people out there who do not understand it or know much about it.

For that reason, people on the spectrum can be prone to hearing all sorts of crazy things—most of which are based on simple misunderstandings and good intentions, but some of which are flat-out mean.

So based on a popular internet meme, this hilarious (and also kind of sad) video shows us what it’s like to live with autism and interact with others! Every statement scripted is anecdotal and not fictional.

May it be a good reminder that our words matter and what we choose to say to others is important.

And if you’re on the receiving end of these comments? That’s a great opportunity to gently educate people.

Check it out!

(Note: this video contains some strong language, including use of the “R” word.)
