As a mother of autistic children, when you see that your children are struggling with so many deficiencies and challenges, you know the work will be exhausting, but nothing more incredible than serving them as a bridge to get them to their destiny.
The more we can show up as our authentic selves, the better we become at teaching others how to love and accept us and the more confident and self-assured we become.
In autism many people don’t believe we can experiment this kind of love. I say we feel love just like everyone else.
Endowed with the want to do their best and remain honest and loyal, autistic workers are not likely to cut corners when under deadlines, nor steal, cheat, or try to gain the upper hand. And an autistic worker will not commonly leave out pertinent information or fabricate facts to beat the workplace competition or gain recognition.
Growing evidence is telling us that autistic women are sometimes deeply empathetic, and eager to be involved in the world. We observe social cues more carefully than men. We camouflage our symptoms.
