For the next few posts, I am going to talk about my experiences with autsim. Here is my first post: Autism is not to be feared. We, who have autism are wonderful people, and we have feelings just like all people. Trying to express our feelings is sometimes hard for us. Normal feelings like sadness, joy, relief,..seem different when autistics make unusual sounds or actions at the same time. Staring at patterns, lights, and other thins seems odd to most people, but to us it seems normal and it helps us cope with all the visual stimulus invading our eyes.
My name is Kimberly Dixon. I am a non-verbal young lady who happens to have autism. I loves to write poetry and make beautiful works of art.
