Autistic children are just as different as neurotypical children.You have both gifted autistic children and difficult learner.
Furthermore, their other talents and abilities play a major role.It is claimed that Lionel Messi is autistic but he is the best player in the world because he can play football well and not because he is autistic.
Jeez.That sounds fatalistic. But it is indeed good to concentrate mainly on the possibilities, not on the constraints. I can probably best explain what the possibilities are by telling about friends and acquaintances.
An autistic friend of me has become a successful DJ.Two other are programmer. ‘ N Girlfriend with ASD works part-time in the kitchen, but in addition she works on art that she sells on conventions. Again ‘ n Other girlfriend works full-time as a hairdresser.
In addition, I know ‘ r one that works in management, and I know ‘ r one that works for a housing cooperative.I know ‘ R One who studies for doctor, one who is a cleaning star, and one who has done mathematics.
I myself also have ASD, and I am in training to work for youth care.So just a lot of social contact, with people who might not be the easiest. I previously worked as a dental assistant. In addition, I have plenty of opportunities to get fun out of life.
Autism is out in everyone just slightly different, and the one experiencing more problems by the disorder than the other.Here I have mainly mentioned the success stories. In contrast, this target group is vulnerable to comorbidity such as depressions, drug abuse, and other problems. Sometimes the problems are very large, and then constant nursing is actually needed. The spectrum is very wide.
These are people who generally need some extra attention to knit around.But it turns out to be worthwhile, because with the right resources, ‘ r ‘ possibilities are enough, autistic or not.
It is difficult to give a general answer to this question: autistic children are mutually (very) different.Every child has opportunities and they are not general, but individual. It may still be more appropriate for autistic children than for other children that it depends heavily on the situation of the child. There is no clear general trend to indicate what the possibilities of autistic children are. However, it can be argued that in general the possibilities of the children who, until a few years ago, had been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, are approaching the possibilities of other (non-autistic) children closer than the Possibilities of the children who would have been labelled as ‘ classical autistic ‘.Most autistic children will walk through special or regular elementary education, some cannot do this and have home schooling or something else adapted to the individual. Many of the autistic children will have a secondary school diploma, from practice education to VWO and both in regular, special and other education (free school, home education, etc.), but some will never Can obtain a secondary school diploma.
There seems to be a misconception that autistic children who are not able to participate in education and/or ‘ daily life ‘ (almost) without exception are mentally limited, while other factors can also play with it such as concentration problems Similar to ADHD, dyslexia (probably in combination with other things, it does not seem to me that with ‘ only ‘ dyslexia and autism are not able to follow-with minor adaptations-education), high depression sensitivity or physical and/or Psychological abuse of the child by the immediate environment (parents, guardians, teachers, associations including ecclesiastical bodies).
There will be many autistic children practicing a sport and some will be very good at their sport and some might become a top athlete.Some of the autistic children will later follow higher education (HBO/WO)-especially those who go to HAVO or VWO-and part of it will become a scientist or a good job, another part will unfortunately be unemployed or a job under the work- Level (whether they want it or not). The chances are that autistic children are easier to close (and maintain) friendships if the environment is more open and tolerant to them than if the environment has too fixed expectations of those children. The children have many possibilities, like other children, the exact possibilities are perhaps something else or have to be approached and achieved in other ways, but there is enough potential (for good prospects for the future and for life now ) for these children.
The world runs on Autists, they succeed in new ways, a path without purpose and a different view.
