We ALL live in the same world. To suggest that autistic children live in their own world is to suggest that they are not part of this world. The ‘Autistic people are in their own world’ narrative is othering and only serves to propagate seperateness and division. We are not the ‘others’ inhabiting this planet and we never asked to be shut out.
