  6. 6. Things I learned 1. plenty of autistic people have qualifications including bachelor degrees and phd’s but are unable to hold down A job , If more time was spent on the skills you actually need and documenting them this would help. 2. Doing things differently is ok , buses on diversion manage! 3. Asking/exploring what meaningful listening means to your child , eye contact may not signify to them you are listening, ( and Might be painful) 4. It is not helpful to pretend you don’t have a disability when you do , because more and more energy gets spent on trying to “pass” verses using the skills the person naturally poses. 5. Work experience is vital it’s a good way of learning your limits. 6. If it helps it really doesn't matter if others perceive it as for younger people ( I still use symbols) 7. Its all very well telling kids what you want them to do when they get bullied e.g tell a teacher, walk away but is this what typica Kids do , does it work?
