I can remember moving to a new house back in October 1986 when I was 3 years old, I am sure I would recognise the van used, as I know it was red. Funny, saying that as I have a picture from that month AND year. Which house I was living it at the time, I am not sure

My memories from my childhood are odd. I can remember places in detail, but I hardly remember people. I don't even remember my parents or grandparents much till the time I was about nine or so, though I know they were there. Everything was much brighter, louder, and faster. I think I can remember things from when I was four.

When I turned about nine my memories became more "normal." I think this was the point that I became more socially aware. This is also the first time I remember being bullied.

My earliest memories precede my third birthday. Is that uncommon?

I remember very little of my life before age thirteen. I know that certain things happened because I hear about them, but if it was not for that I would not have a clue.

apparently not from what I understand with those who have any ASD

Forgot to tell I was bullied at primary school and junior and senior high school. I don't think I would have survived military service.

I have a memory problem that affects my autobiographical memory, which is like anetrograde amnesia. Of course people may argue about the cause but the fact still remains.

I can't remember my childhood. The furthest back I can remember is around 7-8 and it is very vague. It fades all the way back from the present and is an ongoing thing not a fixed point. I don't really care about the passed but I don't want to forget from now on.

The guy at the Maudley said that autobiographical memory is usual for higher functioning individuals.

I can remember back when I was around 1 and a half. It really makes my mother crazy :) I actually drew the layout of our old house in California for her when she kept telling me "Oh, you only remember that because you saw a picture in a photo album somewhere!" and we moved to Arizona just before I was two. I have a very photographic memory, I actually had a great childhood though, total alcoholic Cleaver family!
