When we talk about the youth, often we tend to exclude a segment of the young population -- the ones who live with autism. We forget they are born different, but live in the same world and society that we do. And it is not only those who are affected by the consequences of this condition, but their parents as well, who dedicate their lives in taking care of the special children. Look around, they are our siblings, friends, relatives and family.
Through our cover story, we want to tell you about the lives of people who live with autism. How different are their days from yours? What are their dreams? How does the future look for them? When we think about the youth, we need to include them as well. They may be intellectually disabled, or differently abled, and sometimes referred to as "special", but they are our own.
They are, also, the youth.
