There are tons of things that people do not know about autism. Some people think that it is an abnormality while others call it a disease. What most people do not know is that people on the autism spectrum disorder perceive themselves as normal and are actually flabbergasted by the neurotypicals.
In this blog, we delve to teach people of Nigeria and the world at large on autism. We want to explore it so that more people know about it and stop calling us abnormal.
Characteristics of people on the spectrum disorder
- Tend to have non-conventional social skills
- Tend to do one thing repetitively
- Have a problem with communication
- May be slow on learning things
- Most have an innate talent say music, art or mathematics. This is called autistic savantism.
