In a series of tweets, Uti reveals that he made some of his younger friends take the test a while back and most of them came back with Autism tendencies.
He said, “I’m no specialist but I really think you should take an autism test if you are between the ages of 15-33.“I see a pattern here – challenges with social skills/emotional intelligence, repetitive behaviours and non verbal communications.
“The test is just to determine how your brain works. It doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you.“I got a few of my misunderstood younger friends to take the test and 8 out of 9 of them came back with an autism spectrum or tendencies result.
“Now communication is better and I love them even more. They are so unique!”
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication.
