An Insight From an Autism Spectrum Disorder Child
You don’t need to put yourself in my shoes,
Just know that I wear different shoes.
You don’t need to feel sad that life seems harder for me,
Just know that my challenges are different to yours.
You don’t need to worry that I can’t do things like you,
Just know that my abilities are different to yours.
You don’t need to look down on me or pity me,
Just accept me as I am and that I am an individual.
You don’t need to see me as disabled,
Just know that in so many ways we are not really so different.
You don’t need to think I always need to be helped,
Just be there when I need to ask for it, and enjoy life with me.
