Graphic: A Poem By A Boy Expressing How It Feels To Be Autistic

1 minute

Autism is a spectrum disorder, meaning its characteristics vary significantly from person to person. Knowing one person with autism means just that — knowing only one person with autism. You will not find any two people to be the same. One’s capabilities and limitations are no indication of the capabilities and limitations of another person with autism. 

A child with Autism was asked to write a poem for his school, titled ‘I Am’. He was given the first 2 words in every sentence. This poem is sure to touch your heart.



Autism is not a disability, it comes with a different ability. Dealing with it can be difficult but you can anytime seek advice and support from Experts at YourDOST.
