What it's really like to have autism | Ethan Lisi Length | 9:52


Key takeaways -


  • The typical stereotypes of autism are wrong

  • Autism is just another way of thinking and looking at the world, it is not a disease

  • There are so many ways autistic people can get overwhelmed and anxious such as loud noises, bright lights and social situations

  • In order to cope, people with autism do something called stimming - a repetitive motion or fidgeting

  • Autistic people have lots of empathy, they are just not very good at showing it

  • inner feelings are unlimited but an autistic mind only lets individuals express extremes or nothing

  • Ethan closes by saying autism and other mental conditions should be considered naturally as part of the human spectrum and not as defects.
