Autism Speaks defines Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) as those characterized by social-interaction difficulties, communication challenges and a tendency to engage in repetitive behaviors. However, symptoms and their severity vary widely across these three core areas. Ms. Araujo is one of our Wakefield MIPA teachers. She treats it like a “personality trait,” something unique and wonderful about that student. This comic shows one way to have a conversation, and maybe even start a friendship with a student diagnosed with ASD. Why not meet someone super-awesome this April?
