Facing autism's challenges was harder when I was younger. I thought everyone was mad at me when they would be stern sounding in their speaking to me. I have very acute hearing People would repeat things over and over while raising their voices like I was deaf. I understood what they wanted but had trouble getting my body to cooperate with my mind. Today I turned 28. I am better at getting my body to cooperate, but it is still a challenge to do what I need to do. Instructions need to be slowly given and with physical prompts. Friends find it hard to wait on my slow responses.
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.
