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。

Welcome! 歡迎!

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.

您可能已經註意到,該網站是雙語的:英文和中文。這是因為我一生中有很多人在乎誰會說這種語言。我的第一語言是英文,而我中文並沒有我想要的那麽好,但我確實知道許多會説中文的人沒有太多機會訪問此信息:自閉症和ASD(自閉症譜系障礙)。我也知道有亞裔美國人,而且經常有孩子會說大多英文,即使不是全部都是英文,但父母會在英文方面掙扎。我希望這個網站可以將兩種語言和文化聯繋在一起。您可以在我的部落格上找到大多數信息。

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。”
