I think I am similar to Tito. He had selective preference. He liked to run and move, but did not have full control.
He had no problem looking close, but did struggle with looking far. Also we both struggle with eating all foods.
The thing with autism is we have not total control of our bodies. We are wonderful at playing games- so watch out!- but we also struggles to really control our bodies.
The thing that is helpful is to really be patient and push us. Then we can really be successful.
The story of Autism and normal is history. It is hard to explain. The best I can do is autism is the extreme of normal.
The child with autism is not going to have a hard time with going to new places if normal people treat us normal no matter what.
I think it is the case because we are not stupid and feel people think it. This makes us anxious. Quickly believe in us. We need it.
