Eye Contact / Science Daily
Based on the Science Daily 12-25-96 Autism Article on LACK OF EYE contact in Autism.
Quoted and Commented upon paragraph by paragraph on the blog of Rich Shull. Author Autism Pre Rain Man Autism.
"Science Daily — MADISON - Brain tests at the University of Wisconsin-Madison suggest that autistic children shy from eye contact because they perceive even the most familiar face as an uncomfortable threat."
From Rich Shull,,, Oh good grief see what happens when normals try to discover Autism and apply their very own logic to autism, they miss the entire point to a wonderful different kind of human thought that has never been in a book before. Granted it appears on the surface of things we are most uncomfortable with making eye contact and in younger aspies that is probably kind of true. However many people in our high functioning Anthropology complete a double-blind experience know the lack of eye contact goes improves and even goes away all together as we learn HOW to do our Autism Picture based Thoughts! Rain Man's Curse Lives on! Please Read more in the next post.
