This column is to answer common questions about Autistic behaviours. Have you ever wondered why I, or someone like me, does something? Reply with your question and I will answer it in an upcoming newsletter. (Don’t worry, I won’t be offended!)
I have dyspraxia. Having dyspraxia means I have trouble learning proper control over my movements and suddenly I have to jump, run, flap or shriek impulsively. Because of this I look a lot more disabled than my brain is. My body is much more affected, and I need constant prompting to safely make controlled behaviours.
