The year I was born, the number of children diagnosed with autism was 1 in 5000. And I went through my school-age years and then some never knowing what autism was or anyone who had it. As I grew older, I had an idea it existed but it wasn’t anything I knew about.
It wasn’t until 2008, at the age of 33, that I really learned what autism was.
