Issues with autism diagnosis and perception
Here are two articles I received in my inbox this morning. What are your thoughts? Do you feel the same way? Will you be able to use these articles to start meaningful conversations with your family/friends/coworkers?
– 4 Things No One Tells You About Autism https://themighty.com/2020/01/autism-things-no-one-tells-you/
– When I Thought of Autism, I Never Thought of Someone Like Me https://themighty.com/2020/01/autism-undiagnosed-woman/
As an adult diagnosed less than 10 years ago, there were so many things here that resonated with me, and had my head nodding in agreement. In looking back, my strengths in work environments were “classic” traits and has helped me understand why there was so much opposition to me by coworkers.
I look forward to input from this Mayo Connect community, fellow auties and neurotypical people alike!
