This is autism

"Those people reading these words should believe that even if someone with autism can't speak that doesn’t mean they have nothing to say. I think we should always believe that people can do great things if we understand the kind of help they need and give it without wanting the person to be different. On the inside there is a lot happening you can't see. Don’t be angry when we do things you don’t understand. I think you should remember that everyone wants to be loved for who they are."
