AAM – Day 22 (Dispel a myth)

Empathy.

AUTISTIC PEOPLE HAVE EMPATHY!

We have emotions. We can empathize with others’ emotions. The lack of “emotional quotient” (EQ) from autistic people is just another myth propelled by an inventory designed for non-autistic people.

Is it such a stretch to think that people process emotions differently? That even though that process emotions differently, they still HAVE EMOTIONS?!?

I don’t know how to say it any more plainly without feeling like I am being redundant.
