I often have Allied Health Professionals say to me ‘I have an autistic client your age with similar challenges, and I think you would make great friends’.
Just because we are both autistic and have similar challenges doesn’t automatically make us compatible friends.
It’s like me saying to someone with red hair, while pointing to someone else with red hair.
“You both have red hair , you have something in common go be friends”
Connections are made on like minded interests and values.
Just putting that out there
