Believing in yourself is not always easy in the real world of neurotypicals when you have autism. Mainly it is hard to believe in the careful intent of the kindness of others. Frankly it is a dilemma when looking for new support staff. Justly I need to know if the individual likes me for who I am, or for the experience to work with autism and get training. Really I don’t want to be a guinea pig but it is hard to find people who have experience with people like me.
