Can those that have Autism lead a normal life?
Absolutely, now there are different severity of Autism, which I will address in a later post, but all of these students that have Autism have a special gift. Many students with Autism have a special gift just like you and I that do not have Autism. Some students can play a musical instrument very well, others can act and you would never know that student has Autism. I have personally seen when a student that has Autism becomes very focused on something they are interested in, they lose the disability that holds them back in the classroom. It is absolutely AMAZING. To see these kids with Autism focus and out perform those without a disability just makes you smile. The key is to find that one thing the student can excel at and try to make that a career for them.
