"I have autism. My autism is a part of who I am, just like the sound of my laugh and the color of my hair." "My Autism" is a social story meant to build self-esteem in children on the spectrum as well as nurturing acceptance and understanding among their peers. It is written from a positive perspective in the voice of a child with autism. The "label" is diffused to show that we are all different and we are all special.
