Living with someone with a disability can be joyful and sad. I want to show you how to understand and deal with it. First, don’t take anything too seriously. We can be hilarious people; feel free to laugh! Not because we have a disability, because we have a sense of humor just like everyone else! Second, don’t take anything personally. Things happen. It’s not your fault. It may seem personal, but often it is our reaction to anxiety. We can’t live without the people who love us. We never want to upset you. You mean the world to us, truly. Third, remember to see our progress, even if things are still hard. While progress continues forever, we have already come so far. See the positives. You have to be easy on yourself. Everyone is doing their best.

My name is Mitchell and I am an autistic teen. I want to share my life with the world in hopes that I can bring awareness of what it is like to live with autism. I believe spelling as a form of communication is not well understood and I hope to bring awareness to this lifestyle and change that for autistic people everywhere. I am on the move a lot because it helps me concentrate and apply myself. I don’t think it is a problem, I just think I am different. I want the world to see different as beautiful and not scary like they do now. I know I may not act like everyone else, but that is what makes me awesome! I use a letter board to communicate and I am starting to use a keyboard on my iPad. I hope you enjoy my blog and I would love to hear from you! View all posts by mitchellslifewithautism
