So, my brother suffers from mild-autism and he has a hard time with expressing his thoughts/feelings. He doesn’t have severe autism and if you met him you would think he was “normal” but he does suffer from mild autism as well as other special needs disabilities. So I was thinking about doing more research on mild autism and making one of the MC’s love interest have mild-autism.
Background of the story:
Three black girls foster kids attend a predominantly white school and they experience racism, harassment and much more.
So, in my story, it will include not only POC’s, but also a disability that not many people heard of (most people think there’s only one type of autism which is there severe kind.).
I’m trying to have my story include what most stories don’t. I want to be different from the other readers and I want my story to stand out.
Please leave any thoughts/opinions down below.
