People who have an ASD also sense things differently from many other people. Loud noises, like the school bell, can hurt their ears and they may not like the way certain things feel. They may like to stare at leaves moving in the trees but hate the swirling lights at the school disco. They may only want to eat exactly the same things or they may not like the way some food smells. People who have an ASD are different from each other just like us, we are different each other too.
Some people who have an ASD can talk, but they usually expect you to say exactly what you mean, if you say “Jump to it!” when you mean “Hurry up,” the child who has an ASD will probably start jumping.
Other people, who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder, use pictures or photographs to communicate with other people.
Some people who have an ASD can do their school work quickly, while other people find it difficult to learn to read and write. Some people who have an ASD want to be alone while others want to have friends, but don’t know how to make them.
There are different types of Autism Spectrum Disorder, which have different names; these include Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.An ASD is something that people have all their lives. However, as they grow they learn more and more about the world. Many people who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder will have a job and live independently when they grow up.

...... dan Leonz, si anak ganteng saya adalah salah satu penyandang ASD. Walaupun dia berbeda dengan anak anak normal pada umumnya namun kita mencintai dia apa adanya, sepenuh hati. Nggak ada salahnya terlahir sebagai "orang yang berbeda dari kebanyakan" karena toh setiap individu adalah unik.
