I agree with Pensieve....you are not going to fit the whole spectrum in one or two paragraphs in a way that makes sense to the general public.
Sometimes you have to hit the high points and leave out most nitch-picking details. I think we should be grateful that there is some awareness about our condition at all instead of the way things were 50 years ago. I read an article that many times before autism awareness, those on the spectrum where diagnosed with schizophrenia and put in long term mental institutions.
We say that once you met a person with ASD, you only met one person with ASD. We cant all be included in a small article



All art is a kind of confession, more or less oblique. All artists, if they are to survive, are forced, at last, to tell the whole story; to vomit the anguish up.
