BEING AUTI || Prolonging Response

unresponsive

People with autism sometimes have a hard time paying attention, when someone calls out their name especially; this is because once they’re highly focused on something interesting, it’s hard to draw their attention back.

Timmy doesn’t respond very well to yelling, and anyone who knows an autistic person needs to learn to be patient. It doesn’t hurt to call their name once again in a calm manner, they’ll listen eventually!

BEING AUTI || Literacy

jokes

Many people with the autistic mindset find it hard to get the meaning behind wordplays and puns, because they’re very literal with pretty much anything. I suppose sometimes when their creativity/imagination is extremely complex and vast, sometimes it’s hard to understand simple metaphors or slangs.

Jared would teach his brother anything that has to do with metaphors, but especially his passionate for telling puns. Not everyone likes it when a joke has to be explained for someone to it, but for Timmy, when Jared explains the pun, the funnier it is. plus he’s a fast learner. Jared is super proud ❤

BEING AUTI || Eye Contact

eye contact

Autistic people’s tend to shift their eyes elsewhere when communicating with others, especially when the mind tends to wander; it’s hard for them to look at you directly in the eye, and even though they know how to, it lasts for brief seconds. People would consider this as ‘rude’ unfortunately, and it’s highly important to understand and be patient with anyone autistic.

Back when they were dating, Richard gives that comfort to Tim by facing away from each other so that they don’t have to make eye contact; Richie always knew how to reassure his boyfriend, and Kleinman is astonished by that affection.. and very upfront with how he feels too XD

ANIMATIC PROJECTS!

SM3DW ep 1-4

There are two projects I’d love to get done hopefully this month!!

First one is dedicated to the song “I’m Cool” by Will Roland (music by Sam Salmond) for my boy Timothy Kleinman. It’s also the reason why he was made 🙂 This also goes out to one of my favorite people, Will Roland who inspired me to create Timothy and Benjamin in the first place!

The Second project is about the Kirkstone twins; A friend and I have been imagining what their voices would sound like, and we always aspire them to Arin and Danny from Game Grumps! They’re popular youtubers and also hilarious. I always love to imagine these two characters in their voices. Unfortunately, I can’t upload the preview but soon I will update this post!
