All the labels given to us only help to make myths seem like the reality. By
classifying a non-speaking autistic as low-functioning, one is lowering
expectations for the autistic individual. He or she is not given a chance to express
him/herself and maybe show hidden abilities. We, autistic, have tried hard and
accepted the neurotypical way of doing things to make it easier for non-autistic
people to understand us, interact with us. Despite some progress there is still
very little reciprocity.

It is very easy for neurotypicals to be judgemental about the lack of
understanding and awareness of others shown by those diagnosed with autism,
but neurotypicals, who neurologically have a greater capacity to understand the
world of another, frequently do not make the effort to understand those with an
ASC. There can be an unspoken rule that others should be like us and that any
help and opportunities for learning are designed to 'make the autistic person
more like us'.

as their expressions of gratitude and our own gratitude for them, is one of the
major sources ...

understanding, so we thought that appropriate education would cure all the
