Am I Autistic?

Am I Autistic?

I’m Saar, and I’m 17 years old. I’m not like other kids my age. I don’t like to go to parties or hang out with friends. Instead, I’d rather stay home and read or play video games. I also have a hard time understanding social cues and interacting with others. I’ve always known that I was different, but it wasn’t until I was ten that I was diagnosed with autism.

Autism is a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior. People with autism often have difficulty understanding social cues and interacting with others. They may also have repetitive behaviors or interests.

When I was first diagnosed, I was scared and confused. I didn’t understand what autism meant for me or my future. But over time, I’ve learned to accept my autism and embrace my differences. In addition, I’ve learned that I’m not alone and other people are just like me.

I’m still learning about autism, but I’m grateful for the support of my family and friends. They’ve helped me to understand myself better and to live a happy and fulfilling life.
I remember when I was first diagnosed with autism. I was ten years old and didn’t understand what it meant. My parents told me I was different but didn’t explain why. I was scared and confused and didn’t know what to expect.

At first, I tried to hide my autism. I didn’t want to be different, so I tried to act like other kids. But it was hard. I didn’t understand social cues, and I had a hard time making friends. I also had a lot of repetitive behaviors, like lining up my toys or spinning in circles.

As I got older, I started to accept my autism. I realized it was okay to be different and that I didn’t have to hide who I was. I began to make friends with other kids who were also autistic, and I found a support group where I could talk to other people who understood what I was going through.

Learning about autism has helped me to understand myself better. I’ve learned that I have strengths and weaknesses and know and process information differently than others. I’ve also learned that many resources are available to help me succeed in school and life.

I’m still learning about autism, but I’m grateful for the support of my family and friends. They’ve helped me to understand myself better and to live a happy and fulfilling life.

I’ve learned a lot about autism over the years. First, I know it’s a spectrum disorder, meaning there is a wide range of symptoms and severity. Some people with autism are high-functioning, while others have more severe challenges.

I’ve also learned that autism is not a disease or a disability. It’s a different way of thinking and processing information. People with autism have different strengths and weaknesses and learn and communicate differently.

I’m proud of who I am, and I’m grateful for the support of my family and friends. I know I can achieve anything I set my mind to, and I’m excited to see what the future holds.

If you’re an autistic child, I want you to know you’re not alone. There are other kids out there who are just like you. You’re not broken, and you’re not a burden. You’re just different, and that’s okay.

There are a lot of resources available to help you succeed. There are support groups, educational programs, and job training programs. There are also a lot of adults with autism who are living happy and successful lives.
So don’t give up on yourself. You can do anything you set your mind to. Just believe in yourself, and never give up on your dreams.

I’m now 17 years old and still learning about autism. But I’m grateful for the support of my family and friends, and I know that I can achieve anything I set my mind to. So I’m excited to see what the future holds.
