My Thoughts on Autism

Personal i don't know anyone and i am not related with anyone with autism. When i see or pass a student at school with autism, I put myself in their shoes and picture myself in their perspective. Since i have done research on autism and Asperger syndrome, my research says that people with autism sees everything in a different point of view. Considering they have a different perspective, i have actually put zoned out and tried to see what they are seeing. I always try to put myself in their shoes because everyone is different and its always great to see other mindsets. So personally i dont mind people with Autism and i really would like to converse and make friends with someone with autism.
