Autism is a personality disorder that mostly children suffer from. It is an expression: they “suffer” from autism, but if you look more closely at most of the specific cases, it is not so much the children themselves that suffer from their disease. Amazingly, they don’t even seem to have much of a problem with it, as long as you just leave them to it. The ones who actually suffer are the parents, the family, the ones with the problem are the other children at school, the teachers. What makes the personality disorder a disease is the fact that autistic children are constantly being forced into situations they don’t feel comfortable in because of their autism. If they can be alone, they are fine. And not only are they fine, they actually reach levels of skill, creativity and knowledge all by themselves that most children will never reach at school or even later in their lives. The question is: Where does a disease turn into a gift?
