Getting My Blog Started….

I figured that I better start using this blog for what I intended it for when I thought of the idea.

As I mentioned before, my name is Paul Kotler and I am an adult with autism.  I have what some may call substantial differences in my sensory system, in how I communicate and how my body moves.

I will expand on those throughout my blog, but will leave it at that for now.

I wasn’t able to express myself for quite some time.  You see, I have difficulty moving my mouth, tongue and lips to make speech.  I can say a phrases, words and such that I having practiced saying a million times, but I have more difficulty with new material.  Unfortunately, most of what I want to say is new material.  Going around saying “I’ll be right back” or “Go to the bathroom” just doesn’t cut it when it comes to expressing what I really want to say!

So, I learned to type.  It was a long process, but through typing I am able to see what I am saying so I can focus on creating without trying to remember what I wrote.  I am also able to express myself fully.  I can type so much more than I can say. 

I had many instances in my life when I truly wanted to engage in a conversation but could not.  I heard and understood, but could just not make my body create the plan for speech.  Some people thought I was just stupid I guess, but those that really knew me realized that there was so much more I had to say.  Now, I am going to say it, speak my mind and offer my thoughts on the diverse appearance of autism.
