When you conceptualize autism in your mind, you think about behavioral issues, cognitive disabilities, learning disabilities, physical limitations, emotional outbursts, and other stereotypical things, but mostly, you imagine problems.
One of the most understood aspects of autism are the meltdowns experienced by those who live with the disorder. These are often confused by others as behavioral, rather than what they really are, releases of emotional overload.
For those who live with autism, finding acceptance is a very difficult thing. While government recognizes the condition, they do not always accept the autistic as equal in legal stature to the neurotypical.
