For me, every day is Autism. Autism acceptance is what I need. I may not be able to communicate what I need, so my behavior is my way of communicating. Don’t reprimand me or punish me, help me. Be understanding that I may not have the skills to tell you what I need, but that I need you to use your skills to help understand what I need. When I learn how to communicate better, I have less behaviors. But when I am frustrated, I will have more challenging behaviors. Accept me, help me, advocate for me.
