Hi All,

Here at KenCrest we often speak of serving people who are on the Autism Spectrum. Being on the spectrum means that a person has challenges in one or all of the following areas: social interaction, communication, ritualistic behaviors, sensory issues, and cognitive ability. Obviously, to be diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum, the challenges must be quite significant.

However, in my experience both as a Psychologist and as an observer of human nature in general, I believe that we are all somewhere on the spectrum. We all, at some time or other, have experienced difficulty in maintaining healthy social relationships or have had a hard time in letting others know what we want and understanding what others want from us. Also, many of us get upset if we can’t do things in…just…the…right…way or others do things in the wrong way! We all vary, too, in the ways we perceive things and in understanding the bigger picture.

Understanding our own behavior can help us understand better the behaviors of the people we serve and can be the basis for acceptance and inclusion of those who are different than we are in some way. The celebration of the Americans with Disabilities Act last week was really a celebration of the acceptance and inclusion for all of us who are somewhere on that spectrum!

Please pass this on to others who may not receive email, Thanks.
