    Question AMA: Living with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder)

    I'm hoping this is okay to post here judging by the rules it does seem to be allowed as it falls under life lessons and wisdom, no this isn't to meme or anything.
    This is mostly for people who want to understand Autism better or those who are on the spectrum that may have questions without answers and vice versa as I notice there's misconceptions and rude things associated with it I'd like to actually shed some light on how it is.
    I'm VERY aware this is a weird thing to post on a site like this however this forum exists so I'm doing it here.

    I figured it'd be neat to help guide others who enjoy the same stuff that we all do on this website which is why we're here in the first place.

    ----------

    So a little about myself first and foremost, I'm in my 20s, was diagnosed at 18 with ASD, it took a long time to diagnose due to having depression and severe anxiety alongside it which would "mask it" mostly due to the fact I'm poor and couldn't afford to actually see specialists in the neuro-psychological field.
    I'm usually very shy and quiet a lot of the time as well as nonverbal usually when too much stimuli is happening however I speak when I feel very strongly about something even if my speech is a little delayed and I do my best to make others feel happy and good about themselves, I was nonverbal until about 5 years old, graduated high school, I took classes in AP (Advanced Placement) and IB (International Baccalaureate) for computer science and psychology, I absolutely love to learn be it instruments to mental health or random little things here and there, I've been in healthy and unhealthy relationships, I've worked retail and at home, I usually prefer very strict routines and bad with closing off sentences.

    So now that you know a bit about me, is there anything you'd like to ask? I will censor it but try to answer to the best of my ability, it can be from how school was and how I managed to working or relationships.

    Was wondering how severe of an impairment this is for you socially.

    First time I listen about ASD, is something similar to normal autism? I have a person of my family with autism and is a non sociable person face to face but so funny, intelligent and nice person when you are talking by chat or something like that. Brain is an universe.

    Now, I’m living with a person with a chemical disorder in his brain and I’m really interested in all that things.

    Thank to share with us it?

    To stay healthy, people with disabilities need the same basic health care as everyone else. They need to eat well, exercise, get enough rest, drink plenty of water, and have complete access to health care, including regular physical and dental check-ups. It is important to find health care providers who are comfortable with persons who have an ASD.

    There are many things parents can do to help children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) overcome their challenges. But it’s also important to make sure you get the support you need. When you’re looking after a child with ASD, taking care of yourself is not a luxury or an act of selfishness—it’s a necessity. Being emotionally strong allows you to be the best parent you can be to your child in need. These parenting tips can help by making life with an autistic child easier.

    Reward good behavior. Positive reinforcement can go a long way with children with ASD, so make an effort to “catch them doing something good.” Praise them when they act appropriately or learn a new skill, being very specific about what behavior they’re being praised for. Also look for other ways to reward them for good behavior, such as giving them a sticker or letting them play with a favorite toy.
