I was at the duck race yesterday and i was getting my son's face painted. when it was his turn the lady said, " Oh, he's autistic isn't he? dont worry its my job working with disabled kids, I do that for a living..." my son isn't autistic. he is behind on his speech and goes to a preschool that focuses on his speech....he is 4. but he hadn't spoke, or anything she just said that before she even talked to him...it was wierd and and she wouldnt let it go " im disabled kinda too", she said "im sorta deaf in one ear..." i was like "huh." what would you feel?Answer Question

Well I'm sure I would be offended, in that why is she stereotyping autistic children? Since she looked about 20 perhaps she is special, and she pretty much told you she was, and after I thought about it, I'd let it go. Sometimes special needs adults do not have very good social skills or boundaries. The 20 marker puts me at the guess that she is not exactly old enough to be teaching special needs children. God help those kids if she is.....
No. In the end my guess would be "bless her heart" and move on.
