Know the Autism Personality vs Adhd Personality
My Autistic child has the most affectionate and a rainbow 🌈 personality
Autism is currently diagnosed according to behaviours which fit into three broad areas: social difficulties, communication impairments, and patterns of restrictive, repetitive behaviours and interests.
“Children with autism are not affectionate”
Well this is not absolutely true
A child with autism can and do show affection. But this expression may differ from other children because of unusual responses to sensory stimuli.
So my affectionate autistic child will show and ask for affection in the most uncommon ways
Child with autism may be oversensitive to touch or hugs but they do ask for light hugs
Child with autism can appear to be detached but they love when you show interests in the pursuits they are most interested in
Child with autism will find difficult to make and build friendships but a child on autism will be most keen on having friends and interact socially
Child with autism might not intuitively look into your eyes but will focus, instead, on other parts of the face or body to try to gain meaning.
Thus , don’t underestimate your affectionate your autistic child , It is their underlying brain circuitry that lets them to follow the social rules little differently from us
