Top Ten Ways to Deal with Autism/Aspergers

Kiyomi
I already made two lists about Aspergers, so I decided to make one list that also has something to do with Autism.
Autism and Aspergers look a lot like each other, although there are differences.

The Top Ten

1 Learn socializing

This helped for me.
When I first visited TheTopTens without making an account, I had a lot of trouble with posting comments, and I was too afraid to share my opinions and insights.
It took me a while before I first posted a comment (anonymously) on TheTopTens, and it took me a long time before I made an account.
This day, I barely have any trouble with posting comments
I can simply share my insights and opinions about Aspergers and other stuff on TheTopTens, while I was too afraid to do so at first.
The more I talked on TheTopTens, the easier it was to post comments. - Kiyomi

2 Focus on the good things

Asperger's Syndrome and Autisms have a lot of good things too!
You are creative, you are original, you are honest, you remember things better, there is chance to be relatively smarter.
There's a lot of good things! - Kiyomi

3 Tell other people that you have it

I always do that, like when I meet new classmates and teachers.
That way, they'll consider my disorder. - Kiyomi

4 Take advantage of it

People with Autisms / Aspergers are often very creative and original.
So if you are creative and original, take advantage of it!
Draw something, write a story. - Kiyomi

5 Take it easy

Don't consider Autism/Aspergers as something absolutely terrible.
Just consider Autism/Aspergers as a minor disability, and not a disease. - Kiyomi

6 Get a lot of information about it

This way, you can learn more about your disorder.
After I first heard that I suffered from Aspergers, I did a lot of research, and then, everything made sense to me. - Kiyomi

7 Learn to stay calm in certain situations

When I was younger, I panicked a lot and very easily, and I was angry a lot of times.
These days, I learned to control my emotions a bit, and I still panic often, but not very easily. - Kiyomi

8 Don't think about the bad stuff

Think about the good stuff instead! - Kiyomi

9 Remember that many famous people have/had Autism/Aspergers

This isn't a very necessary one, but it does mean that Autism/Aspergers can create great people. - Kiyomi

10 Talk to other people with Autism/Aspergers

You can learn a lot from each other, and you can learn about the differences between individuals. - Kiyomi
