The Trials of Autism: an introduction and insight to the mindset of people with autism: by Drew Janoson

What is autism?

For those of you who don't know what autism is you might have several questions and misunderstandings. What does it mean? What are people with autism like? Does it mean that they are retarded? Or that they can't function on their own? By the letter, autism is a social learning spectrum disorder. On the one end of the spectrum you have the kids and people who sadly can't function on their own, and on the other, you have the people who maybe don't understand social ques or taboos. In reality however autism is a lot more complicated than just one label as one of my teachers said, we are all like snowflakes. When you've met one kid with autism, You've met one kid with autism. And this blog will explain what it is like to live with this disorder. Feel free to comment, and stick around. There will be more of these posts to come.
