Autistic adults- we exist.

Autistic adults exist. Autistic children don’t magically “outgrow” their autism. Autistic children grow into Autistic adults. Adults with Autism can face many problems such as

  • Difficulty finding a job
  • Difficulty working in a job
  • Sensory overload
  • Sensory issues
  • Anxiety
  • Difficulty with change/flexibility
  • Expressing emotions
  • Communication

Adults with Autism need to be hired. So many Autistic people have talents that are going down the drain. There also needs to be acceptance of Autism, not more awareness. I also think that adults with autism need support.

Also trying to help with certain issues such as sensory overload would be helpful. When we are in sensory overload or when we are having a meltdown/shutdown kindness and understanding would be appreciated. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also accepting stimming (as long as it is not disruptive) would be appreciated as it can help us Autistics calm down, express ourselves, and self-regulate. Trying to understand our sensory issues (which I know can be hard forย  some people) would also be appreciated. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Autistic adults- we exist, and we need acceptance and understanding. ๐Ÿ™‚
