✨🎈 World Autism Month 🎈✨


G’Day Jelly Crew 😀


Every April is World Autism Month 🥰

No manifestation of Autism, is ever exactly the same in each Individual. Although broad in terms of being across a Spectrum, to simplify in general, nerve cells and synapses are organised differently and therefore process information in a unique way. It is often characterised by difficulties with social interactions and repetitions of behaviours and thoughts.


🎈 The beauty of these remarkable perspectives can be seen, in some famous people you may have heard of 🎈


🎉 Sir Anthony Hopkins (Actor), Greta Thunberg (15 yr old Swedish Activist), Courtney Love (Singer), Dan Akroyd (Actor), Bill Gates (Tech Icon and Philanthropist), Dan Harmon (Writer and Producer), Daryl Hannah (Actress), Susan Boyle (Singer), Steven Spielberg (Director and Screenwriter), Anne Haggerty (The Governess - The Chaser), Kim Peek (the Savant who inspired the film Rain Man) 🎉



As this subject is close to my heart, here's a Competition to Celebrate and support, these wonderful people and those who we may know personally, with Beautiful Minds, like those above!!😀


✨🎈Competition How - to's 🎈✨

Nothing too hard! Just post a gif, pic, comment of support or a positive word of encouragement related to this topic, the people above or someone you know. 🥰

😃 As always be kind, be considerate, be humorous and have a little fun in an upbuilding manner! 😃


🎁 5 Winners will be given 25 Gold bars for their Game 🎁


Competition Closes 30th April 2021

    Hello @channie8

    thank you for the tag, the 2 famous people who really I would like to mention are:

    Albert Einstein:

    Perhaps the most famous scientist and mathematician in history, Albert Einstein had a number of interesting and possibly telling characteristics. For one, he had trouble socializing, especially as an adult. As a child, he experienced severe speech delays and later echolalia, or the habit of repeating sentences to himself.

    and Satoshi Tajiri

    As a child, He was fascinated by insects and was even nicknamed “Dr. Bug” by other children. As an adult, Tajiri turned that interest into the world-wide phenomenon that is Pokemon — which itself makes him an inspiration to millions of children (and adults!) around the world. But Satoshi Tajiri is also on the high-functioning end of the autism spectrum and he does not talk about it in public, choosing instead to let his many accomplishments speak for themselves

    Hi @channie8 thanks for tagging me.

    I don't know much about autism. That's probably because I've had very little contact with it so far. But I know that autistic people can have amazing abilities and are special people.  

    We have such a special person here in the Community. I would like to call her so that she can perhaps say something from her point of view, if she wishes. @BlueberryCupcake

    I support your idea that here in Jelly we pay tribute to these special people.

    I know one or two people in my personal life who live with Autism and I'd like to dedicate this comment to them. They are all strong-willed individuals who deal with being on the spectrum in their own way.

    @channie8 thank you for for this beautiful thread. I have worked with kids that have various forms of autism. There is nothing like that feeling when you finally find a way to help them connect to the world.

    Autism gets a bad rap. People automatically think they are retarded or slow and they are some of the smartest ppl out there. They just have trouble communicating and socializing smh. Please give them.a break and treat them like normal people!

    Step son was autistic and loved rock music. He could name any rock song and artist that I would play.

  • PrettyBubblesPrettyBubbles Posts: 5,094 Bubble Witch Moderator

    @channie8 Thanks for the tag this one touches my heart💓 I have a nephew who is autistic what a guy he is supper supper intelligent with things that are way over my head and his memory is amazing. His only struggle is with change he doesn't it to much and can take a while to adjust.

    Autistic people are not given the credit they deserve and that's sad. 😌

    Gold bars or not I think a lot would love to join this topic 👍🌟

    Hello Channie! @channie8

    Thanks for your contribution. I didn't know that there was a certain day for it and I really didn't deal with it. I don't have to take celebrity, I'd rather take myself instead. Because I also belong to this group. For me it's an easy form. I am autistic. That means I withdraw a lot and don't participate in many things in real life. You don't notice it on the PC, I'm more of the creative head here. And here I am the opposite of real life. I can make a difference here. OK. I also made a difference in my city and by writing letters that a broken footpath was finally rebuilt years later. But in society I'm the 5th wheel on the car, as they say in Germany. I would like to get more out of myself, but I have a blockage and it doesn't work. Everyone who knows me knows it and can deal with it. I have had a difficult birth and it has ruined a lot. But I am not ashamed of it and have always accepted it. I also got more confident after going through rehab in 2008. You can still make a lot of yourself and there are always ways and means to do it. Where there is a will, there's a way. That always got me going.


    Thanks for the post & reading.

    Hallo Channie! Danke für deinen Beitrag. Ich wußte nicht das es ein bestimmten Tag dafür gibt und ich mich wirklich nicht damit befasse. Ich muß keine Berühmtheit nehmen, stattdessen nehme ich mich lieber selber. Denn ich gehöre auch zu dieser Gruppe. Bei mir ist es eine leichte Form. Ich bin autistisch. Das heißt, ich ziehe mich viel zurück und nehme an vielen Dingen im realen Leben nicht teil. Am PC merkt man es nicht, da bin ich hier eher der kreative Kopf. Und bin hier das Gegenteil vom Realen Leben. Hier kann ich etwas bewirken. Okay. Ich habe in meiner Stadt auch etwas bewirkt und durch Briefeschreiben, das ein kaputter Fußweg, endlich nach Jahren neu gebaut wurde. Aber in Gesellschaft bin ich so das 5. Rad am Wagen, wie man bei uns in Deutschland sagt. Ich würde gerne mehr aus mir rausgehen, habe aber eine Blockade und es geht nicht. Jeder der mich kennt, weis es und kann damit umgehen. Ich habe eine schwierige Geburt hinter mir und da ist vieles dadurch kaputt gegangen. Aber ich schäme mich nicht dafür und habe es immer akzeptiert. Ich bin auch selbstbewußter durch die Reha im Jahr 2008 geworden. Man kann trotzdem viel aus sich machen und es gibt immer Mittel und Wege es zu tun. Wo ein Wille ist, ist auch ein Weg. Das brachte mich immer vorran. Danke für den Beitrag & das Lesen.

    I think that I became famous here through my aragament here to help and to make a difference. What I've been doing for 2 years.👍

    @channie8 @Lola_Pop


    It's true what Pretty says adjust with the changes. I also find it very difficult to do something new. It also takes a long time for me to get used to it. For me there are also orientation difficulties. Yes, healthy people can have it too. But for me everything is a combination of many things. That's a big difference. I wanted to say that again.
