Top Ten Worst Ways to Annoy an Autistic Child

RockFashionista

The Top Ten

1 Assume they are not intelligent

I know that some people were able to overcome their autism. - Therandom

I have a sister that's autistic. She hates it when people talk about her when she's right next to them. She hates it when they think she's stupid and can't learn but she can learn! She's as smart as me! *growls*

--Silverstar2

They are actually really smart,people who haven't been around autistic children for long just can't see it.They have exceptionally good memory too.

2 Tell them they're too sensitive

It's important to recognize that other people have different perspectives than yours, and that those perspectives are not automatically less valid. What is an annoyance to a non-autistic person can be physically painful to an autistic person. It takes an incredible amount of patience and strength to navigate an inaccessible, hostile, un-accommodating world. Autistics are putting up with much more than non-autistics realize. Telling other people how to feel is so dismissive and rude. Let people experience their feelings; you don't know what they're going through and you aren't the boss of them.

3 Force them to be around other people when they don't want to
4 Talk to them like they're idiots

Teacher: "I think you're doing very good in your grades. You have an A."
Me (In my head): You don't have to tell me a billion times just be ause I have autism! - Turkeyasylum

5 Make fun of them

This should be Number One on this list because it's bullying autistic people, which they don't deserve.

6 Yell at them when they throw tantrums

This just stresses me out even more. - RockFashionista

Pain in a neck

They need a spanking

7 Avoid them because they're "weird"

If people did that to me, I would diss them out, and then go rant about society. - Pony

I wish there were more autistic kids in my school. - RockFashionista

8 Diss them because they're "obsessed" with things

If someone said that to me, it would upset me in a way because I get obsessed over things all the time. - Pony

It's true. I'm autistic and I get easily obsessed with things. Like if I pick out a Lord of the Rings character I instantly become obsessed with it.

I have many obsessions, and I don't have autism, so I think everyone is obsessed with something. - Therandom

I'm obssessed with The Wiggles and The Simpson's I have autism

9 Don't help them with their social skills
10 Make physical contact with them

I don't know about you other autistic people, but I absolutley HATE human physical contact. - RockFashionista

The Contenders

11 Tell them that they're retarded

Saying that they're retarded is not okay, and besides, the word is really offensive towards them, because it affects them the most. So saying that to them is really offensive in the first place.

12 Expect that they want to make friends

I have no desire to make friends, and yet everyone expects I do. - RockFashionista

13 Keep staring at them

Like I have autism and if someone did that I'd be like hey stop looking at me and would want to punch em in the face

Yea I know it's weird because if someone stared at me I would feel weird. This is not nice for everyone - AlphaQ

I'm not kidding, my sister does this just to bother me, and I SCREAM at her because I hate it so much. - RockFashionista

14 Force them to do what others want them to

I'm not autistic but I hate being ordered around like that 24/7 - AlphaQ

15 Tell them they're faking it for excuses

Unless you're a really good actor, I don't think you could fake autism. - RockFashionista

I don't think that's really even possible - ToptenPizza

16 Touch them repeatedly

Falcon Touch! Falcon Touch! Haha! 😄

17 Constantly bring it up in conversations
18 Hurt their puppy

Oh my god, This isn't right.

19 Tell them that they should toughen up
20 Yell at them until they cry

Heck, this would annoy ANYONE, autistic or not. The same goes for pretty much everything on this list. - sketchysteve
