A child's laughter echoing on a cool fall morning just before school starts. A glance across the room knowingly at a love one, words need not describe a connection no other in the room can see, touch, or feel. A simple cup of coffee ....... Often-times, it's those little things in life that makes it...

I'm considering studying speech pathology in the hopes of working with children with speech delays. I have a BA in Mass Communications/Broadcasting right now and have no money to ...

I really do not think 'losing special interest' is the correct term for it.

It's more than just 'losing interest, too'. It's as IF the knowledge one has gained or has accumulated dissipates.......

But, again, this depends on how Autism effects the individual...

It's a shame, special interests do vanish.

What can you do but start reading a few books in hopes of finding another or gravitate to something else naturally...

.....let me clarify, something. This is part of the socialization process. It does not necessarily equate to 'fake personalities'. There is an old expression that goes "A person wears many different hats'. This simply means that an individual fulfills a multitude of roles each having different expec...

I've thought that was a typical NT trait!
Apparently call-centre and sales staff (at the company where I used to work) are trained to perfect it.


It is a very typical practice by Non-Autistics for both personal and professional reasons.

I don't get obsessed for the sake of knowledge (I don't think being obsessed with bus-drivers will make me become intellectually better than everyone else). I just get obsessed because a) I can't help it, and b) I like something else to focus on other than my anxieties, then again, ha!, it's the ob...
