20 Amazing Autistic Children

Autism presents on a wide spectrum, and there's a saying in the ASD community: "If you've met one person with autism, well, you've met just one person with autism."

amount of diversity among people with autism, and it needs to be seen (just like people with autism's voices need to be heard).
