Have you ever noticed that a lot of people with autism draw art? No, it isn’t usually an art masterpiece, but they can be very good pieces of art, even if they are disturbing, because it is healthy self expression, an outlet when youre having a meltdown visible or not visible. It is a way of expressing emotions which is very hard to do on the autistic spectrum. A piece of art from someone who has autism, hfa, or aspergers can speak a million words, words they could never express verbally. I’d encourage art from people who are autistic, because it is the best way to know how they feel and what they’re thinking. We draw our words out in a scene, instead of speaking them.
