Autism Quotes



Today I thought it would be nice to post some wonderful quotes about Autistic Spectrum Disorders. I am all about looking for the positive when dealing with my children's disorders. Or are they disorders?

  • "For success in science and art a dash of autism is essential " Hans Asperger

  • "Asperger’s syndrome has probably been an important and valuable characteristic of our species throughout evolution" Tony Attwood

  • "Someone with Asperger’s really is like you, just more extreme" Dr. Winnie Dunn

  • " Consider the following four dead-end kids. One was spanked by his teachers for bad grades and a poor attitude. He dropped out of school at 16. Another failed remedial English and came perilously close to flunking out of college. The third feared he'd never make it through school--and might not have without a tutor. The last finally learned to read in third grade, devouring Marvel comics, whose pictures provided clues to help him untangle the words. These four losers are, respectively, Richard Branson, Charles Schwab, John Chambers, and David Boies. "
