Hi all, l have two kids with asd and they are completely different. One is lively, loving, and has as much common sense as his severe learning difficulties allow. The other older one, is robotic, he both moves and speaks in a robotic manner. Both are obsessive but about different types of things.. These kids take forever for us to understand, so to expect a society who know nothing of disabilites is expecting too much. ASD kids are on a spectrum where each one is unique, they have their own idiosynchrosys. My elder one likes to watch videos and play on the playstation. The younger one likes to flick things all day long. he will pull toys to bits so that when he flicks them they make just the right sound. He also likes lights on and doors open. Without ritalin he is uncontrollable and throws and giggles whilst running and constantly jumping. The elder one moves very slowly and quietly in an almost disturbing way, he seems to appear and disappear at will. He also has no feeling towards the needs of others whereas the younger one does. It's all very complicated and like l say too hard for any lay person to understand...Dot
