    when i stand in france, they speak to me in spanish.

    when i stand in spain, they speak to me in french.

    when i stand with one foot over the border, they speak to me in german.

    i will devote my time to learning all three languages for them, and they will develop their own, and laugh at my poor accent.

    they could just learn mine.

    they choose not to.

    i choose silence.

    they laugh anyway.

    This really describes autism. Thanks for sharing it! It helps me understand it more. It's really unfortunate that people with autism are treated like this.

    Wow that’s really interesting! I’m autistic, my sister’s nonverbal and I can’t think of a single language my brother isn’t fluent in!
