Let s face it: Who wants to be just like everyone else? Talk about boring! People come in all shapes and sizes and are born with natural and unnatural gifts and talents like no other, and your greatest challenge is to discover your gifts and then apply them to the world to create a better place, a better planet, a better universe! That is my challenge to you so that all of us can get along peacefully and become truly a population of one. I would like to ask you some questions to help you discover what makes you unique, different, and awesome. Are you different?
Are you unique? Do you look different than others? Talk differently than others? Do you walk differently than others? Have you been born with talents that very few others have? Have you been brainwashed to look at your talents as a disability? Do you stay up nights dwelling on all the things in life you don t have, rather than focus on all the blessings you do have?
Have you ever been bullied at school, at home, and in many areas in your life? Have you ever been called a retard, dumb, disabled? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, perhaps you have yet to understand, accept, and apply your unique gifts to make the world a better place. If you have answered Yes to any of these questions, I feel your pain, I have walked in your shoes, and I can empathize with your situation.
I have been bullied, called a retard, told that I am disabled, put in special classes, advised that I should not expect to reach my goals. I am nineteen years old and have been blessed with autism my entire life. I have chosen to accept my label of autism not as a disability but as an extraordinary ability and I want to help you overcome the label that you may have suffered from for many years of your life. So what is autism? The dictionary defines autism as a mental condition, present from early childhood, characterized by great difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with others.
Also, it is defined as a mental condition in which fantasy dominates over reality. So just how many people today are affected by this condition? According to a recent WebMD study, 1 in 88 kids today has autism and for boys the numbers is 1 in Also you might be surprised to learn that since , autism has increased by 78 percent.
Let s put those numbers in perspective. A high school with 1, students enrolled is going to have 11 students with this condition, and a bigger high school with 2, students is going to have 28 students with autism. So, now that you know more about autism, let me highlight some of the things you will learn by reading this book since I want to assure you that this book is not just a book about autism it is a book about how we can all live together in harmony regardless of our differences.
Past studies of corporate image explore public expectations of a good company and how a company would like to be perceived, suggesting a symmetrical symbolic relationship. Engagement is not strictly a U. To what extent might these frames be similar or different outside the U.
International studies might explore engagement levers and challenges as they differ across individualistic and collectivist cultures. Other studies might focus on how unique understandings of higher education globally impact how engagement is understood in a worldwide context. Still other studies could explore how external forces driving engagement agendas e. Knowledge from these studies could inform cross-cultural collaboration that focuses on solving global problems.
