How you can make a difference
My request to you
• Please don’t stare when I am displaying any odd behavior (which may happen due to anxiety or sensory dysfunction).
• Try to include me into typical development by greeting me, interacting with me, playing with me, inviting on occasions because that is how I will learn.
• Give me instructions slowly and in a simple way.
• Please don’t be scared of me as I am not scary. Instead I am more fearful and I too have emotions, thinking and feelings.
• Help me lead a normal life by including me in all spheres of society.
• If you exclude me I will become a liability as the world has more than 21.7 million people like me (statistics as on 2013).
• We work effortlessly to understand your world. Wouldn’t you be so kind enough just to try to understand me and accept me the way I am? I don’t inculcate negative thoughts nor am I dishonest. I am just the way I am – pure and simple.
