The symptoms of autism a person has usually leads to or are related to those of anxiety.

I was born with autism, which interferes with my ability to understand things like homework objectives and it usually leads to me worrying about meeting deadlines. Other things I get concerned about due to my autism are coming up with ideas for important things and how to tell others about them. Growing up I had a sister named Mary who has Asperger’s. Asperger’s is more related to social anxiety, which makes her worried about big events and struggle to communicate her problems to others. One person who we feel comfortable telling our worries about is our mom who will always help us no matter what.
