Navneet Kulkarni, An Autistic boy shares his own story…Ability India
My Name is Navneet Kulkarni. I am a 17yrs old Non Speaking boy with the Autism spectrum. I was diagnosed with Autism when I was 2 ½ years old. My mom says that, I was a very hyperactive child and had a lot of sleeping issues,head banging, bitting, spinning etc. I also had a lot of sensory issues, I am hypersensitive to sounds and Vision. Making eye contact is very challenging. My Journey from childhood till now has been from Paining to Gaining, From Losing To Winning, From No Speaking to More Communicative now through AAC, I use alternative ways for communication, some time through Gestures and through RPM (Rapid Prompting Method) before using this RPM, the window to my mind was unopened with full of thoughts and Animations around me, so dead like feeling inside me, being Non Speaker with no communication without expressing my thoughts always Guilted me, Giving my best in motor functioning was failing many times, but my parents supported me to overcome challenges.
Today i am able to share my journey and i am able to explain about my Sensory issues, how it looks like, feels like. By sharing my feelings and emotions with my parents through RPM, now it’s more than life to me, because i am communicating, I am connecting with my parents, communication is Gift of Life, i am a daydreamer, too much to animate in mind with fictioning stories, My hobbies dance in mind like Jellyfish Glance In Ocean. I am a poet and an Author, whatever i write its all my Insight Knowledge of my own imaginations.
I am very Passionate about writing. I wrote many poems ,moral stories and many life quotes, My first book”Autism God’s Beautiful Creation ” published last year.
I wish to build my career as an Author, and my goal is to serve people with my spiritual Knowledge and to help Orphanage kids with donations from my earnings.
“Youth Are The Pillar Of The Country ” through my write ups and through my story I want Youth to come forward to join hands in these Good deeds.
Being special means not normal but very unique. I think and feel the things
differently so it doesn’t mean I’m disabled. I’m a boy with
different abilities, so through my writeups I want to spread Awareness of
Autism.My way of writing Visioning it is more like talking and sharing my
thoughts and it’s very particular about what and how my mind process, sometime
you may need to think twice to make them understand what I am telling, but this
is my way of framing sentences and expressions,I am a daydreamer and i always
talk with my mind,I am more Insight with my own imagination through Animating
things in my mind, with Blending of my senses I think and express my thoughts, Yes !! This is my way of seeing things.
Neurodivergent means different but not less” Being Different Is Not A
Curse, Treating Different Is Curse” so I want to spread
awareness about how these different abilities are going
to change the world.I want to
spread inclusion of Neurodiversity in the society..
