Our adventures as we homeschool, travel, and explore our way through life... which was made more scenic by the additions of Asperger's, Parkinsonism, and Gluten Intolerance. Welcome to The Journey Unexpected!
A really nice post!Must have been a lot of work (or fun) collecting or the quotes!Michael
Thank you Michael! I had been collecting them for awhile and wanted to share them.
Thx soo much. Helped me to fight for my students' cause...
That's wonderful!!! I would love to hear more about it if you want to share. Either way, I am glad that you find these useful!
I have asperger's and if I weren't then who would I be? I certainly wouldn't be me.Touching post.
You are SOOO correct! I love my son for who he is and I would not want him to be anyone else! And even though I do not know you, I can tell that I would not want you to be anyone else either! Thanks for you beautiful comment!
These are just great!!! As a mom with a child with aspergers these are so moving. I have found a lot of great information for my son at http://onlineceucredit.com/edu/social-work-ceus-ep. I hope this is helpful!
I have Asperger's Syndrome, and all of these quotes are absolutely wonderful and inspiring! Thank you for making it feel like someone truly understands! I'm proud of the fact that I have Asperger's, because without it, I wouldn't be me! :)
That is exactly how I feel about my son having Asperger's. Without it, he would be someone totally different and I love him the way he is. I could not imagine him not being his wonderful self!
I can go to the edge of the cliff and where others will fall, I find the answers to the problem. When I rage it is because the answers don't come fast enough, and I am booting up to a higher level of thinking and problem solving. Then the complex becomes the trivial.Needless things I can figure out. Relationships elude me. I hope when I die God will spend a lot of time with me talking about what others find boring.
Wow! Thank you so much for sharing! It just now gave me even more insight into how my son probably sees things. I'm sure that God will, just as he listens unconditionally to you now. I hope that you have a wonderful week. Thanks again, Stephanie
Finding out I had AS Disorder explained a lot about my life. I still go into mass obsession and focus on things. I have hoped with age that the Aspergers would let up a bit.Just love your son and try and comfort him when he is ramping. My wife is really good at that with me. It becomes a source of comfort.
Thank you so much! That is what I try to do, too.
i have asperger's as well i had a hard time being accepted and understood so thanks for the quotes
Those are two of the most important things to me about increasing awareness... acceptance and understanding!
Thank you so much ..
Such a relief to know that I am not weird... For me being as Aspie means that I finally understand why everybody else is so strange. Finally understanding who I really am at 48. ~JSB
I understand what you mean. I have had Sensory Ingegration Disorder all of my life and honestly thought that I was made wrong or just "too sensitive". I am now 45 and found out I had SID when going through the process of getting my son diagnosed a few years ago. I look at getting a diagnosis as a positive thing... now you know why and what you can do from here on out.
I too am 48 years old and just discovered that I too, am an Aspie .... My Son is an Aspie, and I would not change either of us ... Praise God for making us different ...
Thank you so much for this very inspiring qoutes.As a father to a 4 year old boy who diagnosed with AS Disorder,life at first is very tough.The moment we learned more about autism,the more we love him.Indeed autistic persons are very special.
I have learned SOOO much about life from my 12 year old son with Aspergers. I would not change him. I just want to help him and to most definitely help others to understand and accept. Some extremely important people to our world as a whole would be diagnosed with ASD.
"Different, Not Less" is my favourite, said by Temple Gradin. What an inspiration to all! My daughter got it tattoo'd on her side. It looks great. My son is autistic and although it has been a fight, we're getting there. When will others realise, they won't change or grow out of autism! Mum's...you know you child better than anyone...go with your heart, I doubt you'll be wrong! Sean W
Love these! Thank you so much! I was looking for a quote for a necklace that I am having made and found the perfect one....the Autism Rocks one...I saw it on a t shirt at an Autism Carnival on Saturday but couldn't remember the exact words. My son is 11 with Aspergers and would not change a thing about him. I love him just the way he is. Thanks for all your time putting this together.
You're welcome! So glad that I could help! I often come to this page and my page of quotes for Parkinson's and chronic illnesses when I need a "pick me up", too. Makes it handy! Remember to bookmark this post if you haven't already! Have a great week!
I live with Autism, but I wear the pants in the family!
Just found out my 9 yr old has Aspergers...thank you for the beautiful quotes, inspirational!!
Just found out my son has Aspergers, your quotes really helped me to see how he sees things. I am thankful we now know what is happening with him, because we can finally do what we can to help him. I love him just the way he is, and we have our difficult times, but who doesn't? I wouldn't change him for the world. He is perfect, because he is different, unique in his own special way, how lucky is he!?!?. I am blessed as a mother and as a person to know and love a child with Aspergers...life would be boring without it. I have others telling me don't do this, don't do that, and those saying the doctors are wrong, but I see what they don't see, I know what they don't know, my son is an Aspie and I am proud to be his mom. God gave me him, just as he is, for a reason, they are just jealous because my son is a genius in his own special way. :)
I'm so glad that you found help and inspiration here. I totally know what you mean about being thankful when you finally have a diagnosis and truly can start understanding. what is going on and why. It's like night and day. I make a point to show my son when there is something that is great and unique about him and if it is partly because he has Asperger's... then how that is a benefit of his Asperger's. I also have family who adamantly have told me not to accept the diagnosis... like that is going to change things... It's not. I don't use it as a crutch or excuse. We use it to understand and see better ways to approach any difficulties so we can thrive! A mom knows her child better than the doctors and bystanders, so yes, you definitely see what they cannot see. God DEFINITELY gave us our sons for a particular reason! They are most definitely geniuses in very special ways that we get to discover daily! I'm SO glad that you came across my blog and I hope that I can be a support to you further in the future. Enjoy your son! ;)
My daughter is 14, although she is like most teenagers trying to find herself, she is different. Like most kids who want to see what it is like to become different people, my daughter is discovering herself by posing as different characters to see which she likes best. I know it seems strange to some, but it fits her! She will definitely know who she is, because she has tried to be them all, and will eventually find which it is she likes being the most! She has always been an artist, but she likes being a singer, an actress, a rapper, and ext. at times as well. I love her so much, and I know one day she is going to see how special she truly is to people!
This is a creative way of checking out who she wants to be. I think it is actually a great thing! She sounds AMAZING! Thanks so much for sharing Kristyn!
I am a pretty tough guy just found out my son has autism we knew there was some thing going on great qoates brought tears my eyes thanks
You are welcome. So glad that you found this page of quotes. We are all soft when it comes to our little ones. Take care!
Stephanie, thanks for the quotes! As a 17 year old male Aspie teen, I find these quotes inspiring. :) I sometimes feel like my family doesn't understand me though I wish they would... From my point of view, having Asperger's has changed my life. I try to have a positive outlook on it because God put us here on earth for a purpose. I love being different and I knew there was always that quirky part of me somewhere. I hope to have a great life ahead of me! Again, thanks for the quotes... :)
You're welcome Tyler.I'm sorry that your family isn't understanding right now, I will pray that they will soon and that you will find positive, supportive people to surround yourself with who do understand. God definitely does have a wonderful purpose for you and doesn't make mistakes! You are the way He meant for you to be. Remember that always! Thanks for stopping by and remember to have this page bookmarked or pinned for times when you need a pick-me-up. Thanks again for stopping by, Tyler.
My husband and I just recently found out that our son has ASD. The past 3 weeks have been devastating. Seeing these quotes made me realize that it isn't a "devastating" disorder. It's just the way in which you view it. It is what makes him so incredibly special. Special, not wrong! Thank you so much. It's wonderful to see so many positive view points from something I was so afraid of. Now, I embrace!
I definitely see ASD as a different operating system.... different, not wrong. My son has Asperger's Syndrome or what they now officially like to call PDD-NOS. (I still call it what he was diagnosed as since it truly fits him and I do not agree with the changing of terminology.... but that's a whole other discussion.) Anyway, I have always seen the diagnosis as explaining why he does things the way he does and helping me help him. Your son is the same precious son he was before his diagnosis. He did not change because of the diagnosis. I definitely don't see it as devastating and I have taught my son the positive things about ASD (along with somethings that he has to work on a bit because of his ASD). We don't ignore it, but everyone has something they have to work through. So yes, embrace it and enjoy your son!
This is really a nice post. I like all quotes and i also made one video for autistic individuals. In the video some best autism quotes. find video at here : http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x26pqt0_beautiful-autism-quotes_lifestyle
Hi, I just love your site of all the quotes about Asperger Syndrome & Autism. I'm a 19 year old woman and I have Asperger Syndrome. Here's a quote that I made for my Photography studio: "I have my own little world, but my camera sees all". I hope you like it and if you want, you can follow my work on my Facebook Page: Maripier Normand Photographie (yes, my native language is French) :)
I really like that Maripier! I just started following your Facebook page. Your cat is beautiful and I love photography, too....so looking forward to following you. Take care!
I have a grandson who has Aspergers , he is smart,funny,caring,trusting,intelligent and the best grandson that anyone could ask for....I wouldnt change him for anything. A lot of patience and a lot of love goes a long way!
Thank you for the wonderful quotes. I've found out about two weeks ago my son has Aspergers and I have always known something was different but he is everything to me and so smart it's scary sometimes and now I'm glad I'll get the tools to help him grow cause that was the part that bothers me not the Aspergers just not having the tools to help him hurts me as a mom. Him I would never change.
Nice collection about amazing quotes. Thanks a lot for doing like this job!!
"Look beyond the autism and you will see someone very special."Honestly, I'd rather you didn't try to look beyond my autism at all but instead saw me for the special person I am, autism and all, and realized that the autism is both a part of the very special person I am and a great deal the reason WHY I am the very special person I am today.
I totally agree! I would never want to change my son. His Aspergers gives him many of his personality traits and beautifully unique mannerisms and abilities. When I read this quote many times previously, I saw it is meaning don't just see my Autism and stop there, because it doesn't define me or minimize anything else about me and who I am. I know see it can be taken the way you see it, too. Thank you for commenting and as I tell my son all the time, "Keep being you!", because there is nothing better than that. ;)

"Autism has made me smarter than you, more calculated than you, deeper thinking than you...and makes your laughter ironic"overheard and not something I could dream of arguing with...
