There’s nothing wrong with being #Autistic

There's nothing wrong with being autistic,
There's a lot wrong with making people feel there is… it’s wrong on so many levels it’s unfair to those of us who are #actuallyautistic we already battle daily with ourselves & the challenges that come with our #neurodivergent minds in this neurotypical world 🌍 we don’t need unfair stigmas reinforced by the ignorance of those who most of the time know nothing about autism besides the name 🙃 it’s unfair to those who may have been open to learn but then became hesitant because of misinformation from society who hates us for prejudices sometimes they don’t even know! Autistic people have always been here, autistic people will always be here & we don’t need to be fixed 😊💜🫶🏽✨🌸#AutismSpectrumDisorder #AutismSpectrum #AutismAcceptance

Autism Meltdowns

I could visually be upset or look like I’m in the best mood in the world sometimes, sometimes you can just know let me stay tf away from her 😂 sometimes I may look approachable 🥴 but you wouldn’t know by my smile or approachable spirit that I’m having a meltdown, probably caused by something small probably caused by nothing at all, it happens 😭 just like every single autistic person is different every single #Autistic persons #meltdowns are different 🫶🏽 don’t stare there’s nothing to see here ♾️ #Autistic #ASD #AutismSpectrum #AutismAcceptance

Non Speaking episodes in my children’s book #Autism #Autistic #AutismAcceptance #ASD

🦋Non Speaking does not mean no communication🦋 👌🏽 I chose to write about non speaking episodes in my children’s book ‘I’m Autistic & I’m Phenomenal’ because there’s a misunderstanding that a person who is non speaking is non verbal, has no way to communicate when in reality there are many ways, drawing ✍🏽, writing things down ✍🏽, texting 💬, sign language 🤟🏽& there are many many AAC apps for adults and also kid friendly ones, AAC apps are augmentative/alternative communication programs that allow a person to communicate with those around them without speaking 🙏🏽 it’s important for these things to be normalized & not only familar to #Autistic children their families & other non speaking people ❤️❤️❤️

Journey with autism #AutismAcceptance

🦋Listen to us, open your hearts, know that we have feelings and while our brains were not wired to thrive in this world, we are here and trying our best to navigate it.
With kindness and understanding, just leave a little space for us.
While we are different, we do still have a lot in common. Take the time and get to know autistic people . Never judge people by their diagnoses. Get to know the person then judge their character!🦋

Too overstimulated to say hello #Autism #Autistic #AutismAcceptance

So many things can cause an autistic person or child to become overstimulated, even non autistic people experience overstimulation, we all experience it differently and it can be triggered by different things it can be one thing a combination of different things or even just existing in our own bodies 😂 so YES I can be so overstimulated that cannot handle just stopping for a VERY SHORT amount time to even hold A VERY SHORT conversation if I’m overstimulated I’m just trying to not to faint 😂😂😂 I’m trying to avoid a meltdown or even a shutdown or even screaming in your face 🥴 its complicated we all need a little a grace 🙏🏽 but it doesn’t mean I’m acting ‘funny’ or I think I’m ’too good’ to speak I most likely want to but just cannot handle it 🫶🏽

I’m not a tragedy #AutismAcceptance #Autistic #Autism #actuallyautistic

‘Autism is NOT a TRAGEDY but IGNORANCE is ‘ & yet the ‘autism puzzle pieces’ meaning … let’s talk about it , It was created by Gerald Gasson, a board member for the National Autistic Society. He believed that #Autistic people suffered from a "puz-zling" condition, so they adopted a logo of a puzzle piece with a weeping child, displaying the notion that autism is a TRAGEDY that children suffer from 😒 let’s not forget those autistic children turn into autistic adults 😊
My heart is not a tragedy ❤️
My JOY is not a tragedy 🫶🏽
My Art is not a tragedy 🎨
My books I illustrated, not tragedy’s 😆
My dance is not a tragedy 💃🏽
My soul, spirit and the simple fact that I exist is no tragedy and there’s nothing puzzling about me im PERFECTLY made & so are YOU 🌻💐🌻🦋
Happy #autismacceptancemonth ♾️
