The 11-year-old son of a New York professor stepped into class, stood on a chair, and drew an accurate map of the world. The only tools he used were a marker and his mind. No globe. No Google Maps. Just his unique mind and his given ability. And a chair, to get those nordic countries.
He Drew The World From Memory
The professor’s son is living with autism, which has given him an amazing memory and a unique ability. Many see the disorder as a curse, and when kids have to grow up with autism or Aspergers they often have a hard time making friends and are bullied. But those who focus on the good always find positives.
“The children diagnosed with autism today may always require some degree of physical assistance for living… but that doesn’t invalidate their entitlement to participate, contribute, and to simply be.”
– William Stillman, award-winning author and autism self-advocate
Simply Be Amazing
Humanity and life are amazing. And as amazing as autism can be, there is still so much we don’t understand about the developmental disorder. Those touched by autism know how difficult life with the disorder can be.
Typically autism makes it difficult for people to communicate and socialize with others, but there are positives as well. Autism often amplifies other gifts: intelligence, art, and memory. It’s hard to see when people aren’t as socially adaptable, but people living with autism are just as capable as the rest, if not more capable. What they lack in social skills, autistic individuals make up in other areas.
“People with autism are incapacitated only by the limits imposed upon them by others.”
I’m quoting autistic author William Stillman again. In the article he wrote for Huffington Post, he mentions some friends who, while they are non-verbal, are enrolled in a Master’s program, are prolific bloggers, and amazing artists.
There’s still so much unknown about autism, but what we do know is that people living with autism are capable, beautiful human beings.
