Its autism awareness month. This video should be watched by everyone. People with ASD do not come with ID badges. There is no normal, simply a-typical. People without ASD meet difficult, rude and kind people all the time. There is no reason to assume these people should be labeled either.

This video highlights why some people process information differently. In particular the value of meaning what you say (normal people often disguise their actual meaning) and the value of details.

Most important is the message – different but not less. You might be amazed to Google how many successful, influential and famous people in history haven’t been normal.

If all that seems too much – remember this — ASD doesn’t mean broken nor is it an excuse to behave unkindly.
