Parents of children with autism are not looking for sympathy, but hope for understanding. The next time you see a child "misbehaving" in Walmart or the super market, this may not be a "bad" child or a "bad" parent, but it just may be a child with autism who has had a "meltdown" because of over stimulation caused by the number of people, the lights, the noise or all of these things that can be so overwhelming to a child with autism. Don't judge, don't feel sorry, just be understanding!
Persons with autism may possess the following characteristics in various combinations and in varying degrees of severity.
