Rethinking the Way We Describe Autistic People – From Problems to Possibilities

My childhood best friend reminded me of this, when she shared her thoughts about why, when I disclosed the fact that I was Autistic, she said ” that made everything make sense. – I remember when you were younger and you couldn’t do anything, but now I’ve seen you evolve into a totally new person.
