A few days ago I came across a child who has autism. He could not speak, he just made sounds. I remember that way he communicated was by his hands, but he did not know sign language. It hurt me the way the person he was with treated him. She was very rough with him, and he was just being himself. I remember when they were getting off the bus the little boy dropped his teddy bear. He knew he dropped it and was pulling back the hand of the lady in to pick up his bear, while she was pretty much dragging him out. To a lot of autistic kids, teddy bears (or something similar) are a confort and a friend. If people would of not told the bus driver to hold up, the boy would of lost his bear, his friend, his companion, and his comfort place. I’m in no way saying that autism is the worst thing in the world, there is many different levels of it, nor I am not saying to buy a product from above, but to just respect and help people. And if they are different from you and I, treat them with kindness and not like they’re monsters. Yes, I do want to be a psychologist and I did write a paper on autism for my English class this last spring, but I’m not stating I know everything or anything. These are just my two cents on the matter.
