Hey there, welcome to our Ausome journey through the world of autism! Get ready to embark on an exciting adventure where we’ll unravel the mysteries, celebrate uniqueness, and discover the incredible strengths that make Autistic people so remarkable. What is autism, really? Let us explain…

What is autism, really?

  1. Embracing Neurodiversity: Let’s embrace the awesomeness of neurodiversity! It’s all about celebrating the incredible variety of human brains and the amazing ways they work. Autism isn’t something to fix—it’s a unique way of being that adds depth and brilliance to our world. And perhaps it’s not what you think it is at all! Perhaps if we shift our perspective from seeing autism as a thing, an add on and see Autistic people instead wonderful things will happen!

In a neurodiverse society, we recognize and value the diverse neurological profiles of individuals. Autism, a form of neurodivergence, brings with it a beautiful tapestry of perspectives and talents that enhance our collective experience. By embracing neurodiversity, we foster a culture of acceptance, respect, and inclusion for all.

  1. Beyond Stereotypes: Say goodbye to old stereotypes and misconceptions! Autism is so much more than meets the eye. It’s a community filled with abilities, passions, and talents that will blow your mind. Prepare to be amazed by the incredible potential of every unique individual.

Autistic individuals defy stereotypes. While it’s true that we may have different communication and sensory processing styles, these differences are what make them special. Some autistic individuals have exceptional attention to detail, others possess mind-blowing pattern recognition abilities, and many exhibit intense focus and out-of-the-box thinking. These incredible talents contribute to the vibrant tapestry of our society.

  1. Sensory Sensations Unleashed: Get ready to experience the world through autistic senses. Dive into a fascinating universe of sensory sensations, from vibrant colors to captivating sounds. Discover how sensory experiences shape our perspectives and gain a whole new appreciation for their rich sensory tapestry.

Autistic individuals experience the world in unique and extraordinary ways. Sensory sensitivity is commonly reduced to “sensory issues” but being a sensitive person is so much more than that. The sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and textures of everyday life can be incredibly intense and overwhelming. But these sensory experiences also provide a profound connection to the world around us. By understanding and respecting our sensory needs, we can create inclusive environments that support our well-being and help Autistic people to thrive. So instead of asking “what is autism?” we can ask “what are Autistic people like?” That way we get much better answers!

  1. Communication Wonders: Let’s explore the diverse ways autistic individuals communicate! It’s not just about words. We’ll dive into communication styles, like non-verbal communication, visual supports, stimming, and cool assistive technologies. Prepare to be wowed by the creative and unique ways we express ourselves.

Communication takes many forms in this world. Autistic people communicate really well. It’s just sometimes that other people don’t know enough about our way fo communicating and we are misinterpreted. This is exactly why it was said that Autistics lack social skills. That is not true at all! We communicate verbally, some using words, some using sounds. We communicate non-verbally . Welcome to the wonderful world of stimming! Some Autistics use sign language, gestures, or alternative communication systems like Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices. Let’s celebrate and embrace this rich diversity of communication styles.

  1. Strengths Galore: Brace yourself for an outburst of incredible strengths that may go unrecognised under the medical model. We’re talking exceptional attention to detail, mind-blowing pattern recognition, intense focus, and mind-bending out-of-the-box thinking. These incredible talents contribute to the vibrant tapestry of our society.

Autistic individuals possess a multitude of strengths that deserve recognition and appreciation. Our attention to detail is unparalleled, allowing us to notice patterns and connections that others might miss. We often excel in specialized areas of interest and can bring a fresh perspective to problem-solving. Our ability to think outside the box leads to innovative ideas and creative solutions. By recognizing and nurturing these strengths, we create a more inclusive world.

Congratulations! You’ve completed this whirlwind tour of autism, diving into the depths of neurodiversity and embracing the incredible strengths and talents of autistic individuals. We hope this journey has expanded your understanding and appreciation for the autism community.

Remember, autism isn’t something to be fixed or cured. Autistic is a beautiful way of being that enriches our society. Let’s celebrate neurodiversity and create a world where everyone can thrive, regardless of their neurological differences. And let’s start talking more about Autistic people and less about a condition called autism. Let’s look outside of the medical model – who knows what we’ll discover together- she might even understand what autism is really- a badly thought out idea that belongs in the past and the future is equality for Autistic people!

So, join us in this exciting adventure, champion the cause of neurodiversity, and let’s celebrate the marvels of autism together!
