It's not that expensive nor technically hard to mass-create fake "users" spreading conflicting messages if your goal is just to create chaos and distrust. More fake news should be generated. Lots and lots of it. Fake news should be spread all over the place. It's very dangerous to allow a...

Here's a related question that interests us a lot: What do you all think about how much speech an AS or ND child learns from other children of similar age? A lot or practically nothing or ...? I mentioned in my previous message that we withdrew our child from the kindergarten, because of the shockin...

Her speech development was behind the schedule but it didn't come into arrest until a rigid teacher in second grade started trying to make her "be normal". It was quite a lot of hard work to repair the damage done then. Interesting. In that case, I believe we made the right decision when ...

Nothing prevents it except wealth, you know. The big challenge in the wealth/funding issue is that if ethical people start an organization to help other people, then wealth/funding is needed (as you said), but unfortunately wealth is normally obtained via the exploitation of other people. Thus the ...

There are companies who view themselves in the right niche and are making great efforts at hiring autistic people. That's interesting, but I'm cautious because I've learned the hard way that there exists at least 2 forms: (1) Organizations that genuinely want to help autistic people. versus (2) Cor...

TenMinutes -- I agree with that article, and thanks for posting it, but that's actually a different topic. I know it seems like the same thing, but it's not. In my family, we have concrete evidence of the fact that we learn speech faster when it's connected with reading/visual. To make an extreme ex...

I was nonverbal until age 5. Did you make baby-babbling sounds prior to age 5 or just silent? After age 5, how long did it take to speak complete sentences, not only individual words? Are PECS tiles basically the same as flash cards -- cards with a picture and a word or two? In my family, speech is...

The important part is that communication is meaningful and goes both ways. Once the child learns communication and why it matters meaningful - Is that, for example, helping the child to understand the benefit of saying "I want a drink" when the child is thirsty? Can you give some further ...

Advising folks ... "NTs all suck" doesn't really help them. By the way, although I agree it's incorrect to say "NTs all suck", here's something to think about: What would have happened in my life if I had always thought "NTs all suck" during my whole life? The answer i...

Because normies are evil people who dont listen to a reason. I suggest, if you want to avoid feeling so upset again in future, then consider lowering your expectations of typical people. A lot. Then, next time you're badly treated, instead of feeling upset, you'll be able to think "I'm disappo...

still.people with "bad" skin color can have more bad events than people with "good one" could have even in lifetime. For that general reason (prejudice against appearances), the photo of himself with long hair and long beard also needs to be changed, because it's not worth takin...

Yes the bigotry exists, but I think the bigger problem is that his website is totally unacceptable in the viewpoint of many NT's. For starters, just to make a few quick changes, to begin to improve it.... well actually I had to delete most of it following. The underline parts are new text I added. M...

Fnord -- If ElvenNeko asks me to review his website and suggest changes, I'll do it. Otherwise if he has no interest in it, my effort would be wasted. Alternatively, if YOU are interested in reading my suggested changes to his website, then I'm happy to do it for you, Fnord. However, I'm not an expe...

rse92 -- Alright, then if ElvenNeko posts a copy of the unsuccessful message, then I'll read it and try to suggest changes to the wording in order to make it acceptable to most potential employers. That could solve the problem of ElvenNeko's message being constantly ignored. That's helpful. By the w...

poor planning Instead of criticizing his poor planning, practice planning with him, and do things to help him improve his planning skills. For example, I know of a father who did it very wrong (NOT YOU, this is only an example) -- he frequently criticized his son's lack of planning skills, but actu...

Rotter
Accurate conclusion.

Did you just call me a rotter? Again. That's 3 times now. Some people would be offended by that. But not me. I'm not offended at all. You're welcome to continue calling me rotter. No complaints from me, none at all :D
