Autism and Empathy. It is a common misconception that autistic people are not caring, and in my experience this simply isn’t true. In today’s video I’m discussing how difficulties with theory of mind can be misconstrued as difficulties with being caring.
Thank you soooo much for these videos! I am a neurotypical aunt of a wonderful autistic boy and these videos help me develop my understanding of what he might feel when I act in certain ways or expect certain reactions and behaviors from him when playing together or talking. Your work is essential! Your videos are fun and informative. Please keep going 🙂
I would also like to add that I love how you make it very clear that autistic people are unique individuals so we can avoid generalizing 🙂 yay!
