Looking Up and to the Right
Now there is a buzz term in autism ;and some of us but, not all of us in our autism circles have been told and we are noted at times for looking UP and to the RIGHT when we are doing a deep Picture thought. Our eyes actually physically look up and to the right. When eye contacts returns to normal the Picture thought is over and we are better able to do real life. I have set in Autism Class rooms that are simply too loud and watched autism kids look off into space and we are doing it for a reason and naturally,everyone thinks we are ignoring them but in reality we are trying to do a picture thought.
Autism trying is best to help and demanding that we HAVE eye contact is probably getting eye the eye contact it feels it needs very badly but, it is at the expense of our Autism Thoughts. Those very thoughts we are being forced to ignore are the very thoughts of a Savant or at the least lots of our own good ideas we need to think on our own, do on our own, and overcome autism with. Autism thoughts work well when we get to use them develop them not when they are not taken away from us in the disguise of "help"- currently "help" with an attitude and an Epidemic to $upport.
