Umm, They Call it Success?
I recently searched "radical autism" on Yahoo and low and behold this shows up.
Now Success is a relative term and if one only considers the things from the perspective of the researcher that "invented" autism, well of course, the world is rosy. I would consider success to be what our real life anthropology has done in our double blind Autism Experiments, we have figured out a type of thought that has never been in a text book before. We drive hold real jobs and think both autistically and normally. Our figured out autism might well be the building blocks of man's mind. We build upon the work of Temple Grandin and take autism thoughts to the door step of traditional thoughts.
If our Autism indeed continued to support he new invented version of autism, I'm sure we would be the 'best of friends'. Perhaps it was 1964 when this book was published that modern Autism was born. It was during this same time that many of us thankfully missed the curse of Rain Man and Modern Autism and completed our double-blind trial and error experience that has figured out autism. While we were absently doing autism they made a mountian out a moehole and created an empire that needs supported to this day.
Honest caring research would welcome all points of view if it were true research and not a buzzword type of thing. If we could afford it, we might buy back a few shares in Autism from the Rain Man Empire. They say, men are from Mars, women are from Venus and Autisitcs are from the Moon. As the natural impasse between men and women rages on Autism has a similar battle of people that figured out our autism and the modern Autism of today that was invented minus the hard earned knowledge of its own citizens. Perhaps if Dr. Rimland and others in Autism Research would walk a mile in our shoes they to might see the light at the end of the tunnel. If they spin it right it would not be a train to derail their empire but rather the insight Autism needs to really go places and explain the building blocks of man's mind.
Funny Autism, new autism screams out loud that the old practice of Splinter skill learning, learning life in a 'learning hallway' is the worst thing ever for autism and they disallow it but, in reality it is how we all function so well. Their own "tunnel vision" of only listening to one or two peer reviewed autism "experts" has resulted in an Autism that is, a BIG Powerful self-serving quicksand trap. Perhaps if they really cared of autism they might actually listen to what we have done and blend in a dose of reality with their invented knowledge. All of mankind would be the better for it.
