One of my friends' little brother has autism.I don't know how bad,but he's pretty normal.He's only a few years younger than her/me,so in the younger grades you could hear him taking a tantrum in the halls sometimes. I felt bad for her because it must've been embarassing to her. I know this because she'd put her head down on her desk.But no one in our entire class ever laughed,even the rude guys.My school had special classes and teachers to help the children who needed it,like my friends brother.

I think I am, or it might just be an excuse concocted bye my mother so she can get away with keeping me within her sight or at least within another adult's sight 24/7. I certainly don't need to be followed around like I do. Do I look stupid? I can walk around a school without help, thank you. -_-

Vampire, get lost. Special needs children are pretty rare, actually. I once met a women who told me about an Autistic girl who's so great at poetry She's been published. Now just shut up. -_-

What is a special needs child? One that needs therapy? My brother has Autism, and he takes therapy. Though just because somebody nees Manestream help, that dosen't mean they are classified as a special needs child.

A boy in my class has Autisim (he's so sweet & he thinks i'm his girlfriend). He has gotten all A's on his report card since I met him in the 4th grade. He doesn't act like a child, but he's jittery, he has many personality's & he can start crying on the drop of a pin. It's not that bad, and all the people with disibilities are super sweet once you get to know them.

Me? Super sweet? Not true. XD I inherited my mom's argumentative skills. I'm about as far gone from nice as you can get if you argue with me. Oo

Starts crying on the drop of a pin? Aaaaw. xD Hug him. Hug him right nooooow!!! xD

This topic is making me laugh and go aaaaw lots. Rofl.

There's this boy in my sign language class, I'm not quite sure if he's autistic or not but while he does cause quite a few annoyances (he constantly interrupts the teacher when his aide is off to lunch, and while he's not doing it as often he still needs to stop and pay attention to signing. x.x), he's got his good moments. Right now we're learning animal signs and the signs for their habitats, and to help us learn it our teacher brings in her grandkids' stuffed animals (with permission from them, of course. XD) and has us attempt to sign what animal she's holding up; if we sign it correctly, we get said animal. Then, when everybody had a couple of animals, we played Animal Thief, where she signed a clue and we had to find an animal that fit said clue.

There was an absolutely adorable dragon that practically everybody wanted to hug, and one kid (J) got it. (R), the kid I mentioned, also wanted, but he wasn't throwing a fit like he usually did over things like this. D, J's friend, was arguing with him about not putting his dragon down. The following conversation ensued:

D: You didn't put it down when you were protecting the pig!
J: I did so! And I wasn't protecting anything. I had my arms around the dragon like so. *puts dragon down and puts arms around it*
R: *ducks in, steals dragon from under J's arm, runs away*
J: ... Huh? WHAT?! No fair! *mix of and *
Teacher: *on floor, laughing*

I really think R was planning that. XD



I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!

You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!

My littlest brother has Autism, and he is in the special needs program, but it is only really to get therapy. He is being mainstreamed into a normal preschool this year so that he can go to a regular kindergarden. My other younger brother has Aspergers, and he talks. ALOT.



baby, you got me. ♥

(Sorry if this is grave-digging...I just never knew this topic existed before since the last post was well before I became an actives poster on the forums ^^; )

Anyway, ever since I was diagnosed with AS in like, 5th grade, (I've seen a psychiatrist/social worker since I was 6, up until very recently when we could no longer afford it), I've questioned the diagnoses. I mean, I've never NOT been able to express my emotions; I used to get made fun of for being a "crybaby". And I'm definitely WAY more obsessed with how people work (psychological) than how things work (mechanical). Although perhaps the brain could be considered a "thing"...by dream area of study is neuroscience. Because brains are the coolest organs ever. I want to study how electrical signals become perception and coherent thoughts...anyway. Tangents. Sorry.

At the same time, I do exhibit some tell-tale signs: I can memorize things REALLY quickly. Like, within a few days quickly. And I've always had an, ahem, larger than average vocabulary, to the point where classmates used to ask me why I didn't use "normal" words...but the words were normal to me. And I'm incredibly literal. So much so that it can be hard for me to pick up on sarcasm occasionally. For instance, when I was four, my dad told me to hurry up and put my pants on. I told him that they weren't pants, they were jeans, and he told me to stop being so literal. My amazing comeback? "I'm not literal; I'm big!" When I was in school, I used to need to excuse myself if things got too stressful...I was allowed to keep a stress ball on my desk and get a drink if I felt myself going crazy.

I'm not quite that out-of-control anymore, though being able to afford my medication might help mellow me out to , err, normal levels of stress.

There are definitely a few kids that I've met who are very clearly AS or some other form of high functioning autism, but they fit the diagnostic bill a bit more than myself. I wonder if they ever realized I've been diagnosed with it? I also wonder if maybe I grew out of it...speech and theater kind of forces you to learn how to work with people, you know?

More like you discovered coping methods; for example, I can socialise if I make myself do so, and I have to cuz of my job involving working with the general public.

What annoys me to no end is the fact that some people believe that the word stupid is synoymous with the word retarded. You are not only being rude, but showing your complete ignorance. Also, kids with these issues aren't retarded either. Yes, there are people with mental retardation out there, but NO -- Autistic kids, kids with Down Syndrome, etc. are not retarded, so therefore they should not be called such.



It actually isn't just kids who are so ignorant. My mom told me that while she was at work she saw a mother saying to her child: "Don't be so stupid. What are you on, the short bus?" Also, a man who she was checking in complained about one of the baggage fees, calling them retarded.

-.-
