George Yionoulis has autism and he wants everyone to educate people on what that means.
The 9 year old made this video for his class opening up about living with autism. He reassures others “I’m a kid just like you,” but he may react a little different to certain circumstances.
On difficulty George explains is focusing on single sounds and advises people to be direct when speaking to him.
“I also tend to take what people say literally, that means if you say take a seat you might find one less chair in your classroom,” he explained. “If you’re very specific when you talk to me, everybody wins.”
He also explains when he gets excited, he flaps his hands or bounces up and down.
George encourages other kids to come ask him about autism.
