Birding with Autism

Birding with Autism

I am a person who finds it difficult to sit still and maintain focus, particularly in environments with multiple interruptions and competing priorities. It takes me a long time to get back on track when my concentration is broken. Anxiety and worry, the feeling that I am constantly on the verge of doing or saying something that will disappoint others, is a close companion to autism. Although everyday demands can leave few opportunities for rest, I seek out nature as often as I can to reset. The best way for me to reach a grounded state, to put worry and fear away, is to wander and explore the outdoors.
