Making a difference… and in good company

Sebuah surat yang ditulis oleh seorang remaja autis

Dear Teacher: A Letter From H

Sometimes I make mistakes…

I need you to help me…

Sometimes I hear everything at once… and a lot of noise is overwhelming

When I listen to music I hear everything at once… that is great for listening to music – but it can be hard in a classroom.

Hearing everything in the classroom means that: Sometimes I could hear everyone in the class breathing and it went over the sound of the teacher speaking

This makes me anxious…

I need you to understand that this doesn’t mean I wasn’t listening… or that I was misbehaving.

I need you to encourage me to stick with it… this gives me the message that I can do it and that you believe in me.

Your actions give me messages that teach me about resilience

I need you to notice the little things I do right instead of the little things I do wrong

His message was powerful: I am a kid right now… but someday I will be a grown-up

Please help me build understanding in our world…

via Making a difference… and in good company.

One Touching Poem

My friend’s 6 grader son wrote this poem as part of his 20 days of poetry homework.

Just because I have autism…
Don’t laugh at me
Don’t hurt my feelings
Please understand my autism

Just because I have autism…
Doesn’t mean I need to be babysit
Doesn’t mean I can be treated like a small kid
Doesn’t mean I am naughty

Just because I have autism…
I try to follow the rules
I can use my memory skill
I like Math

Just because I have autism…
I feel lonely
Somebody can take the ball from me
Everybody goes to the party and I don’t
