I've been curious for so long to learn about the differences between "normal" and autistic kids. When you're in a public elementry school, you have different classes with one teacher and then you see a few other classes with fewer kids and 3-4 teachers. Seeing this, it made me wonder why they needed more attention or more "help." For my personal project I want to study and learn about austism from texts as well as help out in classes for autistic kids. I want to see for myself the reason why children are seperated this way, If we're all regular human kids, then why do we need to be seperated into two seperate catogories? I want to know if for the older kids, if it affects them that they are seperated and that they need "more help" according to teachers. So far I've learned that autism is the brain development disorder which affects kids' social and communication interaction. There hasn't been a cure for autism, and autism isn't a disorder that you can just look at a person and see that they have autism. An interesting fact that I learned was that the percentage of kids with autism have increased drasticly since 1980s partly because of new diagnostic practice. Another interesting fact I learned is that 1 in every 160 kids are diagnosed with autism, and boys are four times more likely to have autism. Many parents of children with autism wants the world to know that these autistic kids are capable to learn as much as kids without autism can. Autistic kids aren't expected to get far in life according to many which is why they are limited to the education kids in other classes are given. I am really, really curious to see the difference of autistic and non-autistic kids for myself.
