About my behavior

I am not being rude:

  • My communication skills are not very good.
  • I become quite anxious in new situations.
  • I may not make eye contact.
  • I struggle with the sensory world around me.
  • Please do not touch me or my things.

Please be patient with me, I am not refusing to cooperate.

How you can help me

  • Use clear and concise language.
  • Give me extra time to respond to you.
  • Explain what you are going to do and let me process it before actually doing it.
  • Recognize that I experience things differently from you.
  • I may need access to a calm and quiet space.
