Autistic Pride Day

Autism is not a disease that can be cured. It is not something to be ashamed of. It is something to celebrate. As Dr Tony Attwood said it is a difference not a defect. We see the world differently and think differently due to how our brains work.

People with autism have contributed so much to society without which it would not be what it is today. Just think about

Nicola Tesla – AC electricity

Bill Gates – Microsoft

Alan Turing – code breaker in Ww2

Steve Jobs – home computers, fonts, mobile phones

Temple Grandin – cattle expert

Sir Anthony Hopkins – actor

Gary Numan – singer

Daryll Hannah – actress

All people with autism, or significant autistic traits. Just think, tonight you could be sitting at home, in the dark, no electricity, mobile phones and missing out on some wonderful entertainment.

Celebrate the diversity of everyone in the world, especially autistic people today.
