Science Daily — MADISON ----- Second Paragraph of Article
"The work deepens understanding of an autistic brain's function and may one day inform new treatment approaches and augment how teachers interact with their autistic students."
From Rich Shull,
At one time in a time and place and a space before Autism was a buzzword and widely diagnosable Autisitcs, teachers and parents once did a double-blind Autism Experience with Outstanding results. We were oddest kids the class room and many of us were in Special education. Sometimes we were on the honor roll one six weeks and totally lost in the next. A's and F were common on the same report card. UNKNOWINGLY teachers, tutors and parents discovered our "buttons" and realized we RARELY had eye contact, and we thrived in Splinter Skill learning. If something was geared toward or Obsession we were close to genius. Eventually the Genus parts of our were being filtered threw and in to real life. Suddenly we were a bit social developed and learned how to make eye contact as we figured out WHY our Eyes were OFF. We discovered in our self-taught Autism class that while our Eyes were OFF (optic vision is OFF) we then think with Picture thoughts.
Back when the world was ignorant of autism and our support system was equally ignorant of Autism (thankfully) no one labeled us autistic that is for sure and EVERYONE jumped on our success and even though they could not explain it success is success. Many of us were well into our 30s and 40s before the Autism double-blind experience was completed and thus were too old for Autism Research to give a darn about us. They especially hate the idea our anthropology does so well. They now call us Crypto-sensitive Autisitcs. (Amounts to old Autism time forgot)
Autism is noted for the book Thinking in Pictures by Temple Grandin, and the book I wrote building on Temple's called Autism Pre Rain Man Autism. My book takes Temple's thoughts to the threshold of normal thoughts. There are least 3-4-5 more "thinking in pictures types of books IF Autism publishers would allow us to be "discovered."
