Allism Awareness Month 2016: #ItsInspiringWhenAllistics

The theme of this year’s Allism Awareness Month is INSPIRATION!  And here at Casa Allism, we want you to tell us: What do allistic people do that inspires you?

Our little “square pegs in round holes” can be so inspiring!

Leave your inspiration in comments, or Tweet using the hashtag #ItsInspiringWhenAllistics.  Tell us your stories about the inspirational allistic person in your life!

What does your allistic person do that inspires you?  Have you seen a child with allism occupy his or her own time for seconds or even minutes at a stretch?  Did a loved one with allism recently notice a pattern without you saying a word?  Did an allistic co-worker finally develop more than a superficial level of interest in trains, bus schedules, insects, or editions of The Great Gatsby?  Let us know!

Keep trying, little allistics!  We believe in you!

  1. The majority of people with allism I have to deal with are very low-functioning, but the other day, I witnessed a person with allism (remember to use person-first language, their condition doesn’t define them) asking me about my special interest, the cult sci-fi show Firefly. I do not know whether he was genuinely expressing interest or feigning it as part of an allistic social interaction ritual, but assuming it was the former, good job!
