For Autistic Pride Day, I interviewed my autistic son who is nine.
How do you know you’re autistic?
Because of how fast I am.
Are you proud to be autistic?
What do you like about your autism?
All the things I can remember, except for spelling long words like “assembly”.
Is there anything you don’t like about your autism?
It makes playing with other kids harder. I get really frustrated when people don’t understand the word I’m saying.
If you could choose autistic or not autistic, what would you be?
