No, not everyone is slightly autistic. Does everyone at some point display a behavior that falls on the Autism Disorder Spectrum? Most likely, yes. However, just because a behavior such as rocking or repetitive talking occurs, it does not mean it is linked with autism. The same can be said about being Emotionally Disturbed. There are situations in which screaming is appropriate. Yet, screaming can be a sign of being emotionally disturbed. If a mom is screaming to prevent her child from running into the street, we wouldn’t say that she is emotionally disturbed.
