    I know what its like to have people not look you in the eye. I have an autistic son and when they realize he's not "normal",they avert their eyes.
    I meet everyone's gaze

  • I have trouble making eye contact with anyone, regardless of handicap, race, gender, whatever. I do not deliberately avert my gaze away from them, however. I will speak to them, I will hold a door or assist them in some way if I see they need it and would appreciate it. If I can tell they need the help but would be offended or angry by my offer, then I won't.
