Mankind Cheated Again.
From Rich Shull, Blog Owner
Wow! Were in the deep stuff now, (with a tear in my eye). The blinders of autism have just served their purpose once again and the invented Autism of recent times, is now more than ever a reality. It seems researchers from far and wide and knowingly or unknowingly will be employed for many years to come with a big infusion of corporate funding. Think of the job security and the prestige this could entail for a few people. Also think of the poor families yet again broadsided and the Autistic people condemned to a group home. Ignorance is bold and not so bliss. Naturally, attempting to solve Autism with the point of view of traditional thought
only insures it will be many more centuries before all of our current figured out, information will again come out in the wash. Oh well, at least they will have a few centuries to reinvent the wheel again. It certainly beats admitting to a figured out anthropology. Perhaps someday one of the big researchers will be in serious physical pain and remember gee, there was group of Pain Free Autistic, We should have studied them?
I hope and encourage the autism powers to copy or try to figure out our SUCCESS and I even invite them to plagiarize our work for the good of Autism but alas, they don't have the right point of view or the inside knowledge to even realize they shot themselves in the foot. Mankind is the one that is cheated, our knowledge our insight, our pain free injuries are just to real to be admitted to especially since we don't support every case of the modern autism Era.
Old and Low functioning Autism of today seems to be Picture thoughts, Pain Tolerance and Keen Senses a NEED to be alone! -very much a old Pre Rain Man Definition Of Autism
Modern Autism seem to anything put that and most of these folks even want to be social! They feel pain in a traditional way and seem to be prone to behavior troubles. Look "Cross eyed" and have a few troubles and you might be "autistic." Of Course, those Post Rain Man Diagnosis standards just can't be admitted to now as a mistake.
It seems we just have a feather in our cap and the pride of knowing we have figured out a thought process that has never been in Print before. A thought process like this one would go miles in furthering the study of Psychology and Education and Science. Despite are worldwide anthropology and double blind successful experiments-we haven't even tripped a switch -- when it comes to the 'real autism' of today.
As I have said before, If they knew what they were doing, Temple's book Thinking in Pictures would be noted for setting the ground work, the presenting the basic autism skills that it offers. Obviously no "EXPERT" has ever had an autistic thought!
They would not know Autism If jumped up and bit them / Like it already has.

Autism Society of America Launches New Branding EffortInitiatives to Enhance ASA’s Presence, Bring Increased Attention to Autism Epidemic
The Autism Society of America (ASA), the nation’s most widely-recognized and largest grassroots organization serving the entire autism community, officially launched for the public today its new branding campaign, which includes, among many branding initiatives, a new logo; a makeover for its Web site, http://www.autism-society.org/, the most widely used site on the Internet for autism information and resources; and a jarring new ASA initiative, http://www.gettingthewordout.org/, targeted at corporate donors and those outside the autism community.
“Today is a dynamic and ever-changing time in the autism community. More than ever before, autism is receiving unprecedented national and international attention, and our organization is challenged to be the autism community’s voice,” said ASA President & CEO Lee Grossman. “Our branding initiative seeks to take ASA to a new, more competitive level both inside and outside the autism community by raising public consciousness about autism.”
Created by Fishtank Brand Advertising of San Diego, CA, and TeamBrand, San Francisco, CA, the new ASA logo combines traditional patriotic colors with autism’s symbolic puzzle pattern along with a modern design, reflecting ASA’s loyalty to its roots and dedication to the new age of autism.
To enhance its presence on the Internet, ASA’s Web site has been transformed into the online source for “The Voice of Autism,” ASA’s new tagline. The organization’s site is now easier to navigate and full of new interactive components, making it more user-friendly. At the same time, http://www.gettingthewordout.org/ portrays the harsh realities of autism that are not currently communicated to the general public.
“Our goal was to create a new identity that truly reflected the power and presence the Autism Society of America deserves,” said Fishtank Brand Advertising Managing Partner and Chief Brand Strategist Remy Laughery. “Autism deserves our attention and our agency is proud to be a part of this effort.”
Autism Society of America Unveils New Awareness Arm to Fight Autism “Getting the Word Out” to Reach General Public, Increase Awareness
The Autism Society of America (ASA) unveiled today—along with its enhanced Web site, http://www.autism-society.org/ and new corporate logo—its jarring new initiative to combat the rising statistics of autism diagnoses, http://www.gettingthewordout.org/. The new program, created by Fishtank Brand Advertising of San Diego, CA, and TeamBrand, San Francisco, CA, seeks to reach out to those outside the autism community to demonstrate the harsh realities of living with autism.
“One in 166 children in the U.S. will be newly diagnosed with autism every day. With numbers like this, it’s imperative that the general public wake up to the realities of the autism epidemic,” said ASA President & CEO Lee Grossman. “This new initiative is to get the word out about autism: what it is, what it does to families and what people can do to help us combat it.”
“Gettingthewordout.org speaks to that pool of unaware, unaffected people who have no idea of the rising, astronomical numbers on autism,” said Fishtank’s Managing Partner and Chief Creative Director Ryan Berman. “It’s not enough that they’ve heard about autism, we need them to do something about it.”
The new Web site will be supported with a nationwide print campaign that’s due to break nationally this fall. The campaign is intended to raise awareness and funds that will go back into promoting autism research and education.
