More Than A Number blog

Thought I’d share a few thoughts I’ve been told about Autism (not my own). Also, please feel free to comment with your own thoughts, all except spam will be approved.

“I am a mom of a child with autism. I wish more people were aware that he is a smart wonderful person. So often people assume he is not intelligent because he has autism! I also wish more people understood that at least for him,,even if he doesnt act interested in bieng friends he wants to be friends with people with all his heart!” -mom of child with Autism

“What I hate is people calling him autistic or saying they are autistic. This does not define him. He has autism, but autism is not who he is. Sry, I get kinda po’d”-mother of 12 year old with Asperger’s/High Functioning Autism

“It’s be cool if we had an autism-spectrum comedian on our side , one who told jokes that nobody got except other auties and aspies.
Or if they had an “Aspie Night” on Dancing With The Stars; being that nobody would be terribly physically coordinated, everybody would be graceful by comparsion.”-35 year old man with Asperger’s Syndrome
