Words had vanished and with them the meaning of things, the ways things are to be used, the feeble points of reference which men have traced on their surface. I was sitting, stooping over, head bowed, alone in front of this black, knotty lump, entirely raw, frightening me.
Then I had this vision.

It took my breath away. Never, up until these last few days, had I suspected the meaning of "existence." I was like the others, like the ones walking along the seashore, wearing their spring clothes. I said, like them, "The sea is green;

Functional Gait disorders ("FGD" for the purpose of this #twittorial) are common and disabling, usually accompanied by other symptoms. FGD are challenging for the non #MovDis physician and it can difficult to determine #inconsistencies and #incongruencies during examination.

A degree of mutual adaptation is possible, but true workplace inclusion begins with design.
We have plenty of information about common challenges experienced by autistic people - our #sensory and #communication differences are well-defined.
So what seems to be the problem?

April is #AutismAwarenessMonth

How do you know if your child loves you/hates you, needs you/doesn’t care about you, is hungry/hurting etc? In #autism we usually guess the need of the child depending upon the intensity of the #meltdown or tantrum. #AutismAwareness #AutismAwarenessMonth #AutismFamilies @yaps9
Avani (my daughter) hadn’t started talking till 2 years of age. That got us worried and we were soon given the diagnosis that our child is on #autismspectrum Although she has speech, am still waiting for her to say ‘mumma’ minus any demand. #AutismAwareness #AutismAwarenessMonth
