My Disability

My name is Jackie.  I have autism.  Autism is a neurological disorder that happens in the brain.  Autism makes me self-talk, jump around, and not communicate with people.  My parents found out I had autism when I was 2 years old.  I didn’t look at people.  I have autism because I was just born with it.  We don’t know what causes autism.  I feel okay about having autism.  Sometimes I wish I didn’t have autism.
