Adult with Autism Reflects

Great story…

Learn from those with autism
Daniel Hawthorne
When Daniel was a child his future looked bleak. Without the ability to communicate and remaining non-verbal until almost 7 years old, Daniel was classified as mentally retarded. Today he is totally independent with meaningful relationships and a good career. Among many other accomplishments, he is also the author of A Reason For Hope. I
recommend you read this inspiring book. It will amaze you and show you that anything is possible.

    Such a tragedy when ppl with autism are ‘classified’ as mentally retarded. So far from the truth. I hope many people will read “A Reason for Hope” and similar books and realise the complexity, pain and beauty experienced by those with autism.
    I have worked with young people with ASD and I never fail to be amazed by how they consistently exceed my expectations and assumptions of who they are and what they can do.

    There is a very interesting movie just out in Australia about aspergers – called Mary and Max

    Max has aspergers – he accepts his condition and likes being who he is.
