Awkward – and annoying, and…

Found this video on Facebook – per the info “the video was co-written by a group of Autistic activists (mostly young adults). Every single line in the video is something that had actually been said to at least one of the co-authors, by a non-autistic person, at least once. ”

I had to share it – I honestly don’t know what to say, other than don’t say the stuff that people said to these kids when you meet someone who is autistic. In the comments posted on the Facebook page, MANY of the autistic commenters said they’ve gotten these comments.
