It is important to always remember that individually, autistic people are very different to each other. This is because autistic people (like all people!) have their own individual personalities, histories, families, experiences, likes and dislikes. They are just as different to each other as neurotypical people are to each other. However, there are some common traits that autistic people often share, such as sensory differences, communication preference differences, a preference for honesty and enjoying passionate interests.
What might be common characteristics of Autism regarding social interaction?
These things can vary depending on the day, situation or even year depending on what else is going on in someone’s life. So again, some autistic people may be amazing public speakers, but after a big lecture need a few days not speaking to anyone in order to “recharge.” Other autistic people might really enjoy going to rock concerts on one day, but on another find the ticking of a clock unbearable.
