How do people react when you tell them about you having autism? Do they react differently?
Recently I met a teacher who seemed really hostile towards me. After she found out about My diagnosis she started speaking differently and I started to like her . It turns out she wasn't being hostile, I just couldn't understand how she was feeling.

Some people adapt so it's easier for me to understand. Other people try to make me feel Better about the diagnosis

Well, my brother has autism, but before I ask questions, where are you on the spectrum?

High functioning. I have an IQ above 70 and I am only partially non verbal. I'm 17 and my " mental age" is about 11. I'm very lucky and very thankful.

ah
okay. That makes more sense. I wish I could but unfortunately I'm not him. Can he communicate with a sound board or sign language ?

he talks, its just hard to comprehend sometimes, like you would have to know his thinking process to know what he means
