Emotions and Autism

We are consistently told that our children lack the ability to understand emotions. We as parents of autistic children, or if we are autistic ourselves, know that that is pure bunk. Below are a few of my posts on different emotions and how we have handled the situations over the years. It's not that autistics lack emotions, by any means, the reality is that they simply process emotions differently, sometimes with even more depth of feeling than any neurotypical could understand.
