I had a university instructor tell me that he was on the spectrum. We were chatting after class about autism and he mentioned it.

I've been hit on by abusive people, but I saw the red flags and noped out long before it could have progressed to a relationship.

2. Regardless of your functioning level, if people perceive you as autistic or special needs, you are less likely to be romantically successful compared to someone who appears neurotypical I disagree with this point. People who perceive you as an NT who is failing at stuff NTs should be succeeding ...

What is it about women of middle-eastern background that appeals to you? The delicious food they cook You don't need to be middle-eastern to cook middle-eastern food.

I agreed that 9 to 12 is a bit early for talk about sexual attraction, of any kind, and that they shouldn't be gossiping about it, especially with random adults. That's the usual age for kids to start feeling sexual attraction. And it can be really dangerous for kids to be trying to deal with new e...

We didn't get the rejection letter in the mail yet but they did reply to my request to know what issues he has that they can't support. Here is their reply: these are the criteria he is not meeting at this time: Academically motivated - eagerness to continue learning in a college classroom setting ...

I've gotten constructive criticism in writing groups for my writing (although some people in writing groups gave me criticism intended to be constructive but not actually useful because they misunderstood what I was going for, especially when I was writing different genres than the rest of my group)...

I doubt the pure Lovaas method, Discrete Trial Training, is used today. Actually paediatric psychologists still recommend it. Unfortunately. I do not recommend ABA in any amount. The closest I'd come is recommending an eclectic strategy that draws some ideas from ABA, but tempered by non-ABA strate...

Note to self: Don't immigrate to Australia. These laws target parents looking to find medicare/NDIS insurance support for a chronically disabled child. They don't apply to a person with autism if they are capable of employment and looking after themselves. Maybe Joe90 meant that she wouldn't want t...

The focus should always be on what the patient identifies as their biggest concern. For me, that's never been my autism - my PTSD has always been more bothersome to me, because it actually makes me unhappy, whereas autism makes my life harder but doesn't overall affect my happiness. Even my meltdown...

My brother is NT, but my dad is autistic.

I would like to question the assumption that if your second child is autistic that would be a bad thing, though.

1. Renting typically costs less than owning an equivalent home. In the short term. In the long term, it costs way more. If you plan on living in the same place for a decade or more, it's way cheaper to buy a home. Even with paying people to come in and fix your things for you, homeownership is way ...

Sounds like a stim. If you'd rather chew something that isn't food or your clothes, you can buy chewable jewelry designed specifically for autistic people.
