The first thought that directly comes to mind is how sorry I feel for them. I once knew an autistic kid that got picked on pretty much every day, so he always comes to mind when I see another autistic kid. They have a disability so obviously you can't just go around saying things to them or doing things with them without thinking. I generally avoid them though, I'm always afraid I'll do something to make them freak or spazz or something.
If it helps, it's high school, and lots of teens are immature jerks in high school. We dont always behave very well in high school. Lots of people dont have friends, with or without autism. Do you have someone you can talk to about this? Maybe they can help you figure out if there's other places to look for friends. And remember, high school doesnt last forever. You're almost done...
What is there to think about? They have a medical disorder that they can't help and are born with. I dont see how anyone could have an opinion on that. I used to volunteer at a camp for autistic children and the ranges and differences in each child were pretty great, its hard to form an opinion on such broad range of children and behaviors.
mandyloo is right, my aunts son is autistic, 1 in 160 people are born with autism so its not a rare disorder. its just something people are born with, they cant help it and there is no cure.
I'm not sure what you mean. It's like asking what do you think of people who are short. Or who have brown hair. I dont think anything in particular.
They are very special you can learn alot from them .I had a son with cp he was 2yrs old i have lernt a lot from him. And still learning .
They are regular people in an unfortunate circumstance. They should be treated with love & care.
i have autism and people make fun of me all the time. and i have no friends.
we are all freaking AWESOME :D
