WAIT ARE YOU SAYING THAT THE REASON MY MEMORY IS SO BAD MIGHT BE BECAUSE OF MY AUTISM?!? Omg I finally have an explanation. Thank you!

Autism, like ADHD/ADD, is a developmental disorder. Autism affects many areas of functioning including memory!

Autism and ADHD/ADD are actually very commonly mistaken for each other in prof diagnoses! My own psych misdiagnosed me at first with ADHD but then later re-diagnosed me with autism!

One thing with autism and memory is that autism can sometimes make our attention spans really short (like with ADHD/ADD - which is one reason why they’re commonly mistaken for each other). Because of a short attention span, it’s hard for us to retain information.

There’s also the fact that sometimes we have to be taught something or told something a different way than other people. For example, I could never memorize anything in school until I learned to say my notes out loud to myself and recite it a few times. Because of this, I was actually very good in school plays (one of the few benefits of echolalia lmao).
