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

BEING AUTI ||Hypersensitive Sight

Flashy lights

People with ASD may have sensitive eyes which means anything bright or flashing can trigger them, usually fluorescent lights. Timmy’s eyes aren’t as sensitive, he loves glow sticks and theater lights. But when it comes to extreme flashes such as cameras, it breaks him into a meltdown. The guy definitely did that on purpose 😐

Too bad for him cause Michael is such a protective second mama-

Being Auti || Vivid Memory

Good Memory full comic

I mean, anyone can have good memory, but for people of autism is extremely specific! I can go as far, as remembering the year, how old that person was when it happened, the clothes they wore that day; some even have the audacity to recall the time of the event or the scent of some things. It’s seriously weird in the most fascinating way!…I wish I have good memory, I have terrible attention span .-.

Memories, especially when there’s nostalgia involve, makes Timmy really proud of himself, and definitely makes others laugh at times! For Benji I’mnotsosurelol-
