Sorry this sounds so shallow and superficial, but it will be nice to have a British PM who is presentable again. I'm fed up with being represented by a haystack who looks like he brushes his hair with a balloon :roll: :lol: All the candidates at least LOOK normal and not embarrassing. This shows ho...

Employment and independent living are quite low among autistic people I strongly suspect these rates would be a lot higher if a more strengths-based approach to raising autistic children were standard, and if workplace accommodations for autistic people were more common (including accommodations in...

Usually neurotypical means those who aren't born with any diagnosable developmental disabilities or disorders, such as autism, downs syndrome, etc.

Mental health disorders are too common in humans to be classed as non-NT.


Agree as I said just a control group nothing more

I am sorry that I asked. One thing I learned today is that you can be neurologically developed and develop mental health and neurogenic issues later on. I think language 'Neurologically developed' is a better term to describe this phenomena. You don’t have to apologize it’s called free speech and i...

NT was just a name invented by scientists to separate those with Autism / severe ADHD and the rest of the population for scientific study. In other words a control group. Although they don`t call it a control group, they call it NT. It just means unaffected. The easiest way for science & just ab...

Mental illness and mental disability are two separate things Person A : born NT then family are wiped out in a plane crash which causes depression and PTSD , then in this hypothetical universe they find it is all mistaken identity and their symptoms go away. The symptoms may be temporary disabling b...

Loved the original 3 as a child.

Grew to like more the prequels 1999-2005

The latest Disney movies are junk the last was painful and almost unwatchable.

I don’t know if I’ll watch anymore if ever they make anymore it’s ruined the brand

the parents will get locked onto the label and think the child won’t do anything But this isn’t true. The kids just need to have early intervention, be exposed to things and learn what they like, what they don’t like and what they can do to be successful, she said. Sometimes a lot of times kids wil...

Why when I show odd beliefs and behaviors related to Autism Spectrum Disorder, the police do not really care? They just analyze my odd behaviors and drive by. I tend to try my best to mask my symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder in front of police officers, but not all the time. Autistics are not a...

Odd behavior is in itself not a crime unless you give good reason for them to suspect your up to no good. Most seasoned officers can tell the difference between criminal behavior and odd behavior caused by mental health issues although sometimes they do cross over. It’s best you speak about your con...

Sadly nothing to get excited about. The new PM will be just like the old one, in fact a new gov ( different party) will be just like this gov. Any change will be superficial. Modern western governments enact policies geared to short Termism or the life of one election cycle. They’ll borrow to cut ta...

Yes Heard it being used as an insult against political opponents ( outside autism world).

Either to claim their opinion or opponents view is either retarded or rigid thinking.

Been directed at me plenty of times but don’t care anymore

I happen to like Russian history and culture. But what was said upon the “western Democracies” wanting a “new world order” at the expense of poor wittle Russia is just Russian revisionist propaganda. The amount of munitions and Russian soldiers lost in the attempted invasion of Kiev was massive. A ...
