You Do Not Outgrow Being Autistic

Reading now: 274

You don’t grow out of autism. It’s not some phase a person is going through. Autism doesn’t end at 18. Regardless of the stories you may have read on the Internet or social media accounts, it is incredibly uncommon for a child who is accurately diagnosed as autistic to become an adult who is no longer autistic.

So those ridiculous theories of how to “cure autism” — not only are they dehumanizing, they’re false. Autistic children may build some strong skills and overcome some challenges that may make their autism less obvious.

There is a difference between overcoming challenges and overcoming autism. Being autistic is lifelong. There is no overcoming of that, it’s part of who they are.
