I have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Please be aware that:
ASD affects about 1 in 59 children in the United States
ASD affects children of all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups.
ASD is a spectrum disorder, which means every person with ASD has different skills, challenges, and needs.
People with ASD might be easily overwhelmed in a social or public environment due to sensitivity to sounds, sights and smells.
People with ASD often struggle with non-verbal communication, including eye contact, and may struggle to understand your social interactions.
