  1. When Autism is given a stereotypical depiction by people or representation by the media, what misconception do you have a bigger issue with? Being portrayed as incompetent, emotionless simpletons or extremely savant supergeniuses?

      Autism isn't something that's easily portrayed since it manifests in different ways.

      The former. I’ve seen autism used as an insult that assumes we have no standards when it comes to video games, and that everyone with autism is a modern day Neanderthal.

      Both are just as bad, positive stereotypes are still stereotypes and can lead to harmful interactions with others

      The idea that autism consists of one single trait that all autistic people have is the biggest misconception of all.

      Both. My mother keeps diagnosing strange behaviours as autism. My mother keeps diagnosing those who are really into computers as those with autism. People think autism makes you an idiot. People think autism makes you really smart.

      I'll give my personal experience: Autism makes me not as socially adjusted as others. I am closed off and unable to understand how others feel, which makes me a very lonely individual, and caused me to develop social anxiety. However, therapy has trained me to break those barriers, and I'm indistinguishable from a neurotypical person now, but there are other smaller traits that most people don't pay much mind to.

      It is a spectrum. There are high functioning and low functioning. It's not one defined trait, and is far more complicated than you think it is.
