Recently on my Facebook page I posted “Growing Up Autistic: 10 Tips for Teenagers with Asperger Syndrome or Mild Autism” by Chris Bonnello.
It had a huge response and Chris has kindly given me permission to put the full article on my website.
Parents, educators and teens all found the article very helpful so please, if you didn’t see it, take a moment to read and share with anyone who may benefit.
“If you’re growing up on the spectrum, this article was written for you. I grew up with mild autism myself: I struggled with isolation, I struggled with understanding other people, and I struggled with other people not understanding me. So, from one autistic to another, here is my honest advice to you.”
