Non-Verbal Autistic Girl Shows the World Her Heart


Anonymously Autistic

A video from an ABC special, titled Autistic Girl Expresses Unimaginable Intelligence is a good example of how many non-verbal Aspies can be dismissed. I do not agree with the video’s title, as it suggests that a non-verbal Aspie cannot be intelligent.

Although I am verbal, it bothers me greatly much that the spoken word is used to measure intelligence.  My intelligence definitely shows more when I am able to type my thoughts out. Sometimes I have a hard time expressing myself accurately out loud and tend to stick to pre-prepared stock phrases and answers.
