Autistic Pride Day

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?

Yeah.

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?

Autistic.
