The mind is the HQ of the personality
But when it’s different, it is labelled as a disability
Why is it considered a disability?
When it should be recognised as an ability
Autism is said by Medical professionals as the next step in human evolution
So why is it still internationally regarded as a mental disorder?
This Ability of ours, makes us who we are
So please, please, don't label us as disabled
Please, look beyond the label to make us feel enabled
