5 more autism quotes

After the success of my post last year, my 5 favourite autism quotes. I decided to look for 5 more autism quotes to share with you. The success of last year’s post has blown me away. It still gets constant traffic to this day, and is by far my most popular, nearing the 3000 page view mark. If this one had a quarter of the success i’d be happy.

Of course, the important thing is the message that the quotes represent. The continued awareness and acceptance of autistic people in our communities.

The 5 quotes

1.

Autism quote 1

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been messaged by people claiming to have a cure for autism. There is no cure. Autism isn’t an illness or disease, it is something you are born with and part of who you are.

2.

Autism quote 2

Trying to fit in, known as masking is something Lily does a lot. It’s very prevalent in autistic girls, and can do more harm than good. Many times Lily has appeared okay in a situation, when actually she wasn’t. Which ended up causing bigger problems.

3.

Autism quote 3

I see a lot of talk about mild and severe autism, with it sometimes being shown as a straight line scale. It not that simple.

4.

I always try to be positive about our situation, but it’s not all sunshine and smiles. I love this quote, because the difficult times are so important. That’s when you learn the most, and you can make progress in the best ways to help your child.

5.

Simple, but powerful. A lot of assumptions get attached to autistic people. There is certainly a stereotype that people have, which causes people to over look what autistic people have to offer.

That’s my 5 more autism quotes. I hope that you enjoyed them, and found them informative. As always, thanks for reading.

    Hi Adam. I can see why your previous post was so successful – these quotes are, as you say, simple yet powerful at the same time. They make you think more carefully and more fully. Thank you.

    These are some really great quotes, although the rainbow one bothers me, not for the quote itself or it’s meaning, but because it misstates what a rainbow is. I guess it works if you think of the rainbow as a drawing

    I remember your quotes post from last year, and I’m not surprised it was so successful. These are all equally powerful and it’s hard to pick a favourite. But I think the one that resonates with me most is, “Why fit in when you were born to stand out.” This is perfect. No justification necessary for anyone to be the way they are. Thank you for sharing 🙂

    Gosh imagine messaging someone with autistic children about “cures”. Some people have no morals. These are great quotes Adam!
