Play ground ideal and autism
" One of the most daunting issues for children with autism is how to
interact with classmates - unfamiliar territory that can prove
overwhelming for all involved. While public awareness for autism has
increased, understanding autism on a human level remains a work in
An Answer from Old working autism Rich Shull
The job of interacting well with class mates was once much easier before Modern Autism "took over." Although it was still very hard the fact no one was there screaming Autism "mentally disabled" and making a big deal out of "autism" and honestly trying too hard to help, left us much better off. BEFORE RAIN MAN we were just as strange and as odd as kids today are but we were never shortchanged our thoughts process. People didn't care that we didn't give eye contact people didn't know we were that odd. We actually had the respect of our teachers and classmates to some degree and maybe the era of the 1960 was such no one was allowed to bully and get by with it. We had teachers on the play grounds with us no kid talked back to a teacher or another student. That Mayberry RFD (reference to old 1960s TV show that was white straight and narrow) ideal did wonders for autism.
As we were bumbling threw life "not Autistic" we were able to absently start connecting our lack of eye contact picture based thoughts to your normal ones. These building blocks of the human mind are the very core of autism and have never been in a text book before AND they are not desrenable in any research autism or otherwise as EVERYTHING ABOUT AUTISM'S thoughts has never been charted before and normal thinkers are totally ignorant of even where to start to figure us out.
Sadly Public Awareness is only as good as the information it gets and that information seriously flawed as the very key to Autism the Crypto Sensitive Autism guidelines were so complicated and so easy to forget modern Autism Including the famous Dr Rimland forgot all about them. Autism has gone down hill ever since. The Crypto Sensitive Autism Is AUTISTIC CODE and to an autistic person it is the key to the kingdom as the older working autism folks, like me can attest to. When the Autism became a designer condition it makes sense that the experts clambering to help would have lost track of the autism that was working and simply interjected their normal thoughts and ideal on us. That for sure was a recipe for epidemic of autism cases.
Autism's Fine Line of success and failure was simply erased when it became a normal designer condition. Despite Autism's Blue Print in real life The Enigma by (Andrew Hodges) a book about Alan Turing's Autistic life and invention of the computer and development into a normal life all described in the book and the fact hundreds of us follow the same blueprint show were too little too late. Autism is a billion dollars worth of genuinely puzzled "correct " experts all reeling in the frenzy of an epidemic but not of autism. The real epidemic of Autism is of their poor research and not remembering all the facts to autism. Of Course none of what we have done has been in a text book yet and never will be as 'The Autism Experts" have spoken and they like their jobs and really don't care if autism kids in up in group homes or not.
