Autism-

Source: Huff Post

 

Trying to figure out autism is like trying to figure out where exactly does a color start and end on the rainbow. There are different scales of colors and different abilities on children with autism. Not all of them are geniuses and not all of them have amazing abilities. Not all of them have melt downs and not all of them don’t understand feelings, and not all of them can’t talk. Some treatments may work for some and may not for others. There is a wide range of different levels and you just have to treat each one as an individual.
