Autism Spectrum Disorder–Whaaat?!

I read The Mighty which is a great website with numerous real people who write articles on various mental health topics and chronic illnesses. They tell of their experiences and their story. The Mighty makes me feel not  or . I feel I have a place I belong.

I know many people who fall on the “spectrum” of autism but from my experiences few people understand what this means. They think of a spectrum as a linear idea when it isn’t. The Mighty has this great video that gives a little insight into what that means by Rebecca Burgess. I wanted to share it with you in case you’re not sure on what autism means or help those who might not.

If you prefer to read the video instead of watch the video, here is the link for that on the artist’s Tumblr account.

The article on The Mighty’s website is “Comic Redesigns the Autism Spectrum to Crush Stereotypes.”

Please feel free to reblog and share. Let us help end the stigma of mental illness, chronic illness, and neurodiversities.

Enjoy,

Laili
