Autism is totally great to have if you have supportive family, and friends, and teachers. I have all of those, I am very blessed.
Keeping a positive outlook and fostering good habits are helpful for autistic people to feel competent. When you give responsibilities to autistic kids, you encourage them in pursuing their potential, not remaining stagnant.
I have learned to do a lot of things with loving guidance from mom and teachers. They know I have talent and potential, even though I have challenges too. I appreciate that they assume I’m competent.
For example, my mom has taught me to put away clean dishes and take out garbage to help my family. She thinks I’m responsible enough and trusts me. Sometimes it takes a long time to learn new tasks but she keeps me going. Teachers have helped me to learn to cope with challenges by never letting me give up even when I’m difficult.
So, if you love someone who is autistic keep storming the castle of their potential and you will reap the rewards.
