How little I understand autism

A pair of Apple ads really highlight for me how little I understand autism and what autistic people are capable of.

I watched a pair of Apple ads that highlight an autistic teenager named Dillan. The ads highlight for me how little I understand autism and what an autistic person experiences. It will take more than these ads to gain that understanding but it’s a helpful reminder that there is much more to autism than many of us may think:

I love the idea that devices like the iPad (and, I’m sure, many others) can help autistic people express themselves to the rest of us more effectively and help them connect better.
