Aspergers Myths

This video exposes Caucasian stereotypes about Asian Americans.

It got me thinking, “What kinds of stereotypes do neurotypical people have about Aspergians and autistics?”

And that’s where my latest Psychology Today blog article, Get Rid of These 3 Asperger Myths Once and For All, was born.

If you’re a neurotypical (non-Aspergian, non-autistic) reading this, ask yourself what “myths” you may have about Aspergians in your life.

If you’re an Aspergian or autistic, please be patient with neurotypicals, but point them to articles like this to educate them.
