By Morenike Bailey
Reality TV star, Uti Nwachukwu, has advised that youths between the ages of 15-33 should undergo an autism test.
Autism is a neurological condition that is observable in early childhood and persists throughout the lifetime. The ailment is characterised by some degree of difficulty with social interaction and communication.
Taking to the Bird App on Wednesday, Uti advocated that due to his experience with his younger friends, he advise that younger ones undergo the autism test as a compulsion.
According to Uti who shared his opinion in a series of tweets, he stated that he encouraged his younger friends to take the test and almost all of them came back with results of autism spectrum.
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 behaviors and nonverbal 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!,” Uwachukwu stated.
