Why are autistic adults rude?
Why are neurotypical adults rude?
Not all Autistic people are rude, to suggest otherwise is prejudice - often Autistic people are more polite than neurotypical people because they've had social skills training and are more sensitive to social rules than neurotypical people because they have to be in order to pass as neurotypical. Autistic people don't always understand social rules, such as being polite rather than being blunt or honest, this can sometimes come across as rude.
Yes, autistic adults can live on their own. Most autistic people do live on their own or with partners and family, although some autistic people may always need support often autistic adults live just the same as neurotypical adults. Although autistic adults may be more likely to face problems like unemployment due to discrimination which may limit their ability to live on their own, they still remain independent.
Yes, a mechanical engineer is a suitable career for autistic adults. You can meet with a counselor at a college to decide what is best for you.
Yes, of course autistic adults can get married. There are no restrictions on autistic people getting married, as long as they can consent to being married there's no reason for them not to.
No - autism is a neurological condition, autistic children grow-up into autistic adults.
Yes, of course we autistic adults can engage in a meaningful relationship. Autism does impact on social interaction, but it doesn't make us emotionless or stop us from forming relationships with other people. Most autistic adults will have a meaningful relationship.
Yes, often Autism is missed in childhood and not picked-up until adulthood. There are many Autistic adults who had no idea they were Autistic until their children were diagnosed.
Yes, Autistic children grow-up into Autistic adults and will live as long as neurotypical people. There is nothing about Autism specifically that could shorten a persons life.
Yes, a lot of Autistic children grow-up to live and work normally as Autistic adults. There's a lot of focus on Autistic children, many people forget that eventually we grow-up...we don't just vanish after childhood, we're still here and more attention needs to be given to supporting Autistic adults.
Whether they can or not depends on how severe they are on the autistic spectrum.
Yes, it is very common for Autistic adults to have gone throughout their lives without knowing that they were Autistic. It was believed that Autism only occurred in boys, that a person was only Autistic if they behaved in a way common in those more severely impacted by Autism, and Autism was not widely known about a few decades ago...thus often people don't realize they're Autistic. Many adults do not realize that they're Autistic until… Read More
In 2013 CDC released data saying that 1 in 68 children are diagnosed as autistic, which seem to also be true for adults. Not all autistic people are diagnosed so we don'tknow the true figures in how many people are autistic.
Because its very rude
Learn about autism - not just from doctors or studies but from autistic people themselves, autistic adults have already been through what your son is going to go through so can help. There are many resources by autistic people, for example if you are on Facebook Karla's ASD Page is a great recourse for parents of autistic children, and Karla herself is autistic so can give great insight into autism. Even if your son is… Read More
Many parents do struggle with their autistic child and are concerned about their future. Autism doesn't mean a child/adult who is mentally handicapped. Autistic brains think different and many autistic people only deserved to be understood and not treated like they're sick or handicapped. Autistic children/adults are not sick or handicapped. Many parents should try to understand their autistic child instead of being scared all the time.
Generally you communicate with us as you would other people - obviously don't talk in a patronizing tone, and if a person is severely Autistic recognise that they may not be verbal. Generally speaking Autistic people are better with written communication such as email rather than face-to-face or over the phone, so if you're talking to someone because you need information from them or need to help them then try to email if that's an… Read More
What is the commercial that had kids dressed as adults on an elevator and the girl asks the boy if he is having a half day?
i think it is were the adults need to learn how rude the parents can be!!!!!!!!1
Yes, of course there are autistic children and adults who have not had any vaccinations. Vaccines have absolutely no relation to autism what-so-ever.
All Autistic people have poor eye contact because it is not something that comes naturally to Autistic people. Eye contact has to be learned or mimicked by Autistic people, although even then because it's not something instinctive to us we often cannot maintain normal eye contact and it can be uncomfortable for us to try to maintain eye contact. Autistic children are more likely to have problems with eye contact than Autistic adults because they've… Read More
I have a serverly Autistic brother and a son with Autistic traits. Basically every Autistic child has deferent obsesstions and behavours. Some Autistic children become attached to objects and others to just one person usually the mother. Some autistic babies talk jabber talk to their hands, most autistic child will not accept change. All autistic children are highly intelligent. Autistic children they say become autistic adults, not true. I taught my son to clap his… Read More
If you mean the new movie, Despicable Me, it is meant for children and can be a laugh for adults too. It's rated 'PG' for rude humor and mild action.
Listen to autistic people - even those who are mildly effected know more about what it is to be autistic than a neurotypical parent. Also remember that how someone is affected by autism and the severity in which they are affected varies throughout their lives so it may well be the 'passable' autistic adult was once severely effected when they were children. Your child will also be an adult at some point, adults who have… Read More
They might need legal guardian as adults, yes. If they are so impaired by the condition so they can not work, pay bills or do everything else we do as adults they will need help.
If the kids are speaking in a rude manner, the adults think they need more discipline; or proper manners. If the kids are speaking with good grammar, they think it's fine.
Of course they do. Having a mental disorder has no affect on your emotions or sense of judgement. Being Autistic does not mean you are not human. It just means you are different. It is true that they do not always express emotions the same way most people do, but this is simply because they see the world differently, but they are still human beings. In fact, Autistic people are even more emotional than non-autistic… Read More
No, I have one every year. Of course if I had a bouncy castle, clowns and cake, pony rides and ice-cream it might be a bit rude. But, I have booze, dancing and other adult entertainments so it would be rude, if not illegal, to invite children ;)
Yes, Autism has a big impact on a persons social life. People who are Autistic have social and communication problems which means that making and maintaining friendships is very difficult, and often neurotypical people can dislike Autistic people because they don't mimic neurotypical body language or because Autistic people act differently to neurotypical people. Autistic people also often struggle to maintain social interaction, it requires a lot of extra effort for Autistic people to be… Read More
Regression normally results from stress. For example many parents will push their autistic children to be more like neurotypical children, forcing autistic people to pretend to be neurotypical takes a lot of effort and can result in burn-out followed by regression. Often parents who will not accept their autistic children continue to force them to try to be something other than autistic, long-term this does more harm than good. Autistic people will often regress following… Read More
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a neurological condition, autistic people are born autistic - we do not know why people are autistic.
An autistic person knowing that they are autistic depends on their level of comprehension. Some autistic people have limited comprehension and they may not be able to comprehend that they are autistic. Others may be able to understand that they are "different" but not really understand why, whereas others know they are autistic and can explain their autism.
After your child is diagnosed as Autistic you learn more about Autism. It is good to talk to other Autism parents and specialists, but remember that the real experts are Autistic people themselves as they experience Autism and Autistic adults have been through childhood so know what is needed to support your child growing up. Always learn about Autism from Autistic people via forums, Facebook groups, and Blogs - I recommend Karla's ASD Page on… Read More
A special interest for autistic individuals is a sense of purpose and ways they learn to socialize. Sometimes they're interest can change into a new one. Some have more special interest than just one. It doesn't mean they are causing harm on themselves and others. And it doesn't mean they like their interest more than people. For even autistic adults if they like things that are not on their age level that should never be… Read More
A person doesn't become autistic, they are born autistic.
A person is born autistic - they do not become autistic.
No she is not autistic.
No, she is not autistic.
First of all, different people have different perceptions and definitions of what "rude" is. What you may personally see as rude, might not be seen as rude by most of everyone else. Second of all, there are many manufacturers of magic 8 balls. Not all of them are the same. Some are child friendly, some are original and some have been designed for adults. Your answer is both yes and no. It depends on your… Read More
No, Johnny Depp is not autistic, or at least he has not publically identified himself as autistic. He doesn't show any obvious signs of being autistic either.
The correct spelling is "autistic."
He's not autistic
An autistic is a person who suffers from autism.
A person doesn't become autistic and being quiet doesn't make someone autistic - a person is born autistic.
A person doesn't 'end up' autistic, a person is born autistic. Not all autistic people are non-verbal either.
No, not all Autistic children are savants. Many Savants are Autistic, but most Autistic people are as normal as Neurotypical people with no particularly special talents.
Yes, Autistic people can marry other Autistic people. We can marry whoever we want, but often we will pair with other Autistic people because it's easier to be ourselves around them than with neurotypical partners. Although there's nothing to say two Autistic people are more likely to get on than an Autistic and neurotypical person.
You can't - autism is an absolute, you are either autistic or you are not and there is no way that a person can become 'less autistic'. A person with autism can improve in areas such as commnuication, social skills, and functioning, this tends to happen naturally as autistic people get older and learn new skills, but it is helped by supporting and understanding the autistic person.
An Autistic is a person with Autism.
Yes, he is indisputably autistic.
Autism is thought to have a strong genetic link, especially on the fathers side. Autistic people are more likely to have Autistic children, but that's not always the case.
No, there is no scale to tell 'how autistic' a child is. A child is either autistic or they're not, there is no scale of 'how autistic' a person is just as there's no scale for how Chinese someone is or how female someone is.
As autism is genetic then in theory Autistic people are more likely to have Autistic children. We don't know the full causes of autism or how likely it is for Autistic people to have Autistic children. In theory autism is more likely in the offspring of an Autistic father, and of course more likely if both parents are Autistic.
