I was diagnosed with Autism when I was 2 ½ years old. This means I have trouble relating to my environment and interacting with people.
I am non-verbal so I cannot speak much.
I try very hard to communicate and interact with people, but it is really difficult for me. Sometimes I will go away to be on my own or I will speak in my own “Aimee” language and twirl my fingers. I would love to talk properly but most of the time the messages in my brain get confused.
I also have major sound sensitivities, mostly when people whistle or sing/talk in certain pitches. This really hurts my ears. I have trouble listening to music being played on instruments and to voices on television.
I am getting better at adjusting to changes in my world as I get older and I can now focus on things for a lot longer.
I found my love of Art in school, and it is now a wonderful part of my life. I enjoy creating a quirky take on visual scenes and I hope you enjoy them too!
