The importance of listening to people with autism

I find it interesting that everybody wants to know what it is like to live on the autistic spectrum, yet when you offer them your story they’re not interested unless it’s from a parent or carer? Parents and carers do have a valuable role in developing the understanding of autism and living on the spectrum, but surely the best people to talk to are those of us who live with it day after day after day. Or am I missing the point?
