April 2nd World Autism Day

Posted by
Aubélia (Kortrijk, Belgium) on 2 April 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

What are the symptoms of autism?
The main signs and symptoms of autism involve problems in the following areas:

Communication - both verbal (spoken) and non-verbal (unspoken, such as pointing, eye contact, and smiling)

Social - such as sharing emotions, understanding how others think and feel, and holding a conversation

Routines or repetitive behaviors (also called stereotyped behaviors) - such as repeating words or actions, obsessively following routines or schedules, and playing in repetitive ways

Thank you for taking a look at my photos.

You are very brave to say that you suffer from this condition, and to bring out varied symptoms. People are shades of everything-Introverts have some extrovert tendencies, socially aware people sometimes make real social gaffes, calm people can be angry. Autism isn't a heavy blanket that covers you, it's a thin sheet that you can throw off....sometimes. I hope that you can increasingly throw it off when you want to
