Autism is only seen as a disability because it doesn’t fit in with the majority. The brain doesn’t function the same way as the rest
Stephen Owesney (1 year ago)
Okay it may disable the functioning of your life but it doesn't mean that there is something intrinsically wrong with you or something to be fixed, you experience hypersensitive sensory information because your brain is literally hyper-connected, hyperactive, hyper-communicative, and hyper-functional in a micro circuit context. Autistic brains have way more synapses and neurons than average except in areas directly due to social functioning such as non verbal communication and face reading
Pete Bloczynski (1 year ago)
It's seen as a disability because it is one. Autism isn't just social awkwardness. Most autistic people have an intellectual disability (mild to severe), learning disorder, epilepsy, or gastrointestinal issues, etc. Many don't talk until 3 or older or even ever. I for one can't be in a classroom or even low noise level room for long because for me it's super loud and I can feel my eardrums pounding in my head. I can't focus well on conversations or lessons. Many autistic people don't understand idioms, metaphors, and it's hard to read facial expressions. It's definitely a disability. If one person is whispering in an otherwise quiet classroom the only thing I can hear is their whispering and I can't even read or draw because to me their voice is just so incredibly loud. For some people, they aren't effected as badly and for them it isn't a disability, just a part of their lives, but for many it is a disability and a part of their lives.

One of my best friends has autism, but he got STRAIGHT A's this year, on a normal course! Unbelievable, right!? :D
Stephen Owesney (1 year ago)
Why is that unbelievable to you? I have high functioning autism and I have straight As in nearly all AP and Honors courses ( not trying to be pompous just providing a counter-example ) You know if you have a high IQ autism generally acts as an advantage in a lot of areas.

How can it be called a disability? Yes, they suffer from social and emotional difficulties but a lot of autistic people are immensely talented.
British Shorthair (4 months ago)
if i literally can't interact with humans very well then im disabled. but there are a spectrum of autism and he is not the worst case. I've read about worse cases, he at least interacts with people and emits some emotions tbh.

English Cloud You answered your own question lol
bylilybee (11 months ago)
It is a disability. It's the same thing that causes our issues, or disabilities that fuels our 'talents'. Our brains are wired differently. One autistic person doesn't 'suffer' more than another simply because they're non verbal, etc. We all have difficulties and strengths. The spectrum isn't a simple line of 'less autistic/more capable' to 'more autistic/less capable' it's a colour wheel of different difficulties.
Pete Bloczynski (1 year ago)
There's varying levels. Most autistic people have an intellectual disability ranging from mild to severe.

Autism should seriously not be a disability, It's more of a power or a miracle. Autistic people are so different from everyone else and they always have something they are extremely good at.
Pete Bloczynski (1 year ago)
It's definitely a disability lmao. Most documentaries are about either savants (like this guy) or people with Aspergers but most autistic people have intellectual disabilities, ranging from mild to severe. A lot of them end up having to be cared for all their lives. Epilepsy, gastrointestinal issues, etc. are super common with autistic people.

My friend has Autism and I don't know why people think that they are stupid and annoying because she is the top of my class and the best friend I ever have ☺️👱🏼‍♀️
Stephen Owesney (1 year ago)
Not most, Asperger's syndrome has been added to the autistic spectrum meaning now anyone can be autistic, with genius IQ or with imbecilic IQ
Pete Bloczynski (1 year ago)
People think they're "stupid" because most autistic people are actually intellectually disabled but yeah it's dumb to think all autistic people are in special ed.

people with autism...I honestly think they're geniuses. I think they're thinking is so different from ours that we kind of just labeled it as a disability. But, personally, I've never met a person with autism that wasn't great at something. ya know?
Think Man (5 months ago)
It definitely can be a disability, it's not all savants.There are some on the low functioning end with severe behavior issues and some that are extremely violent.
