Unmasked Beauty 面具背後的美麗
Discover what we as autistic people hide in order to appear normal. 了解自閉症人對世界隱藏的東西。
As you may have noticed, this site is bilingual: English and Mandarin Chinese. This is because I have many people in my life who I care about who speak this language. My first language is English and my Chinese isn’t as wonderful as I would like, but I do know that many Chinese speaking people don’t have as much access to information about Autism and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). I also know there are Asian Americans, where the child speaks mostly, if not all, English and the parents’ English isn’t as proficient. My hope is that this site can serve as a bridge between those two worlds. Most of the information on this site will be contained on my blog.
“Don’t think that there’s a different, better child ‘hiding’ behind the autism. This is your child. Love the child in front of you. Encourage his strengths, celebrate his quirks, and improve his weaknesses, the way you would with any child. 不要認為自閉症背後有另一個更好的孩子【躲藏】。這是你的孩子。愛在你前面的孩子。像對待其他孩子一樣，鼓勵他的長處，慶祝他的怪癖，並改善他的弱點。”Claire Scovell LaZebnik
