Autism Perspective

“Autism is a neurological disorder. It’s not caused by bad parenting. It’s caused by, you know, abnormal development in the brain. The emotional circuits in the brain are abnormal. And there also are differences in the white matter, which is the brain’s computer cables that hook up the different brain departments.”

Temple Grandin 

 

“To measure the success of our societies, we should examine how well those with different abilities, including persons with autism, are integrated as full and valued members.”

Ban Ki-moon

 

 

“Autism doesn’t have to define a person. Artists with autism are like anyone else: They define themselves through hard work and individuality.”

Adrienne Bailon

 

“I think the core criterion is the social awkwardness, but the sensory issues are a serious problem in many, many cases of autism, and they make it impossible to operate in the environment where you’re supposed to be social.”

Temple Grandin

 

 

“Autism is part of my child, it’s not everything he is. My child is so much more than a diagnosis.”
