Rosie King: How autism freed me to be myself

Rosie King celebrates her uniqueness in a Ted Talks Video

Quote from the ‘Ted Talks You Tube Channel’.

“People are so afraid of variety that they try to fit everything into a tiny little box with a specific label,” says 16-year-old Rosie King, who is bold, brash and autistic. She wants to know: Why is everyone so worried about being normal? She sounds a clarion call for every kid, parent, teacher and person to celebrate uniqueness. It’s a soaring testament to the potential of human diversity.
