It is difficult to conceive of knowing absolutely nothing these days. But I do believe you have to be receive information in some way. The main argument for no teaching needed is that since it is a natural biological function we will naturally figure it out. If that is true why do we need toilet tra...

I don't know if this helps but we could be happy and not show it in a normal way. I often am asked what is wrong?, what is bothering you? because I am grimacing. I am that way usually because I am hyperfocising on something that interests me. We have had several threads here about this. I wish that ...

Derek Jeter - Baseball Superstar

Social Skills wise although he certainly has hyperfocus. How does one be in public eye constantly for 20 years in today's world and never get in a scandal or seemingly say the wrong thing? That is a feat 99% of NT's could not come close to accomplishing.

I would say mild enough to have to watch a sensory overload video made for NT's to appreciate what most members experience.

I am not sure well because I would have to know how different others really see me and I am not even sure how bad I am at reading that. As for the Autism Spectrum probably high. On the Aspergers subspectrum I was diagnosed moderately severe. I have seen little reason to doubt that. I see Aspies who ...

I don't think an Autism Spectrum Disorder needs to be approached form the angle of, "things I cannot do. I don't agree with those who would completely rule out the idea that someone on the Spectrum can work in customer service. I have worked in healthcare with direct patient contact for the past 32...

In an ideal world with greater supports for eberryone, what would one do about this situation to prevent a child from becoming aggressive and a parent from losing it? If I understand correctly as a result of the show supports that they weren't getting are going to be or are being forwarded to them

A counselor that I talked to about this very issue told me that people try to get diagnosed or get their kids diagnosed for the benefit check. It's not a lot of money but they still try.
