"Nothing is impossible if you believe in it," someone once stated. That best describes two nonspeaking autistic kids who graduated with honours from U.C. Berkeley this week. It's a watershed moment for them and Cal. U.C. Berkeley set a goal that helped people like David and Hari enhance their quality of life.
David and his classmate Hari Srinivasen have paved the way for other students with impairments at Cal.
As a result, the brain is able to manage how my jaw, lips, tongue, and soft palate join together to form sounds and words for the vast majority of people. Hari and David, on the other hand, are finding it tough to make all of those moves.

Talking about John Miller a teacher with autism has changed the life of people
Students with autism at Palm Beach Gardens' Watson B. Duncan Middle School are learning not only academics, but also crucial life lessons from someone who has been through similar experiences.
He's been a teacher for 20 years, seven of them at Duncan Middle School, where he taught language arts to students with autism. He assists children in advocating for themselves, becoming more self-sufficient, and adapting to their surroundings. If classroom schedule is irregular or nonexistent, students on the spectrum may exhibit rigidity or inflexibility.
Due to school schedules, staff absences, weather changes, or human error, however, it is impossible to avoid adjustments in everyday activities. Along with dealing with unpredictability, teachers may find it beneficial to expose kids to new places, materials, peers, and activities during the school year in order to broaden their exposure to a variety of situations.
Some reports have found that those who discovered they had autism as adults expressed more favourable feelings.
Findings of this study suggest that telling a child that they are autistic at a younger age empowers them by providing access to support and a foundation for self-understanding that helps them thrive later in life.

The increased demands of social life in the adult world, coupled with the non-verbal communication and perspective challenges that come with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), can make aspects of daily interaction overwhelming for adults at any developmental level.
"The findings, which were published in peer-reviewed journalism, imply that, in addition to age, many facets of identity may influence how people react to learning they are autistic."
