Diagnostics 

Imagine how it would have felt…

Imagine if instead of feeling lost and broken and incapable…

Imagine if instead of being labelled obstinate, reticent, lazy…

Imagine if instead of wondering why life was so physically difficult… 

Imagine if lots of wrongs hadn’t become one diagnosed wrong but instead… 

Imagine if instead they/you/we/he/she had said ‘because you are autistic it is very likely you are able to visualise well, it is very likely you are able to plan well, it is very likely you have an eye for detail, it is very likely you are more able than you thought, it is very likely you are better at maths than you realised. It is very likely you are really rather remarkable and very capable.’

Imagine that

That would have been better, wouldn’t it?
