Autism has been on a downhill spiral ever since and Dr. Rimland's sincerity has been tested a number of times before his death and his lack of professionalism and true caring for Autism Spectrum people were sadly obvious. Not only did Dr Rimland basically ignore Temple Grandin's Thinking in Pictures he also purposely ignored the many more of us from all over the world that have done more than she has. He had ignored all of us that have figured out autism. We are now called Crypto Sensitive Autistics-well if you want to split hairs we are old Autism.
His organization was sent copies of our books and those of us that published were slammed with horrible reviews probably a reflection of his ignorance/or even worse an illustration of his efforts at protecting his empire. He was after all the father of Rain Man the hit movie exploiting a Savant. How much of Autism is just exploiting the defect of someone autistic via the ignorance of the very Autism professionals trying to discover us? It seems the Autism Epidemic speaks volumes.If I had been born after 1965 I too would have been a Group home Zombie just like many autistcs of today. Autism's modern "help" is more work than help.
Dr Rimland had every chance in the world as does the modern Autism empire he left behind to explore and discover the working autism we have figured out but in reality we are bad for business. Our inside information would cripple Autism as the world knows it and return it to its former "strange glory."Dr Rimland was at least 30 years old when he started the ASA and had to have known of the Crypto Sensitive Autism Guidelines that were common knowledge in the those days. It seems he also ignored the old autism guidelines to his own benefit. If he would have known of them he could have never made a big deal out of the leaky gut ideals without having the idea autisitcs don't feel pain correctly? Perhaps he DID know of that and exploited that idea that we don't feel pain and that would opened up the door for all kinds of abuse? Rain Man's Curse is in full swing and the legions of Autistic people stranded in group homes or left unfulfilled by an inept education system is now reason alone to forever keep the successful autisitcs of all ages hidden.
Those of us figuring out autism have charted into the building blocks of Psychology and inadvertently mapped the small pieces of the human mind and thus since what we have done has never been in a text book before we are on our own. There is isn't one other research discipline that knows of us and Autism gets to shuck its responsibility of discovery for the public good as its peer review participants would rather NOT be embarrassed. If we were ever admitted to Autism 's law suits would go from Mercury issues and IEP's (education plans) to lawsuits of deficiency against Autism researchers.
Shockingly Autism the invisible thought process signaled by the lack of eye contact and the ideals of Einstein could be taught by 6th grade! Those of us that done that, did a double-blind autism experience and the results are not the "good news" autism needs to hear-if fact we are last thing autism needs to hear. As long as their Empire is billions of dollars strong it is a safe bet we will never ever be heard.
Dr Rimland was also the father of an Autistic person and like many people in our autism Anthropology we have sadly discovered we have good odds of a narcissistic parent. Those of us that have broke threw often report not only overcoming autism ,but a Narcissistic parent or sibling as well. Narcissism is when one has a GREAT public Image and acclaim to spare but behind closed doors one is a nasty monster the very opposite of the public figure the world loves. Autistic kids would be at a very big disadvantage when it comes to living with a narcissistic. Plus the accepted image of an autistic kid is one is retarded and socially inept so a narcissistic parent could use that to their advantage as well. Narcissistic people feel the need to be worshiped and their very own kids would be stranded in that role and the Narcissistic parent would not be ashamed to use them either. Perhaps that is another reason not to investigate our Successful Autism Anthropology? If you need a form of an example look to the BBC, show Keeping up Appreances, Hycan the main character has many Narcissistic traits that are visible.
If you ignore modern autism (you can't unring a bell) and go back to its ignored foundation suddenly Autism is not all that bad and we are for sure not in group homes or behavior troubles and we even talk. Our story is illustrated and is repeated many times over for you to read in the book The Enigma by Andrew Hodges (1983) . It is the story of Autistic hero and Father of the Computer Alan Turing (1912-1954) . Almost every one of us in our hidden crypto sensitive anthropology (even modern teenagers) fits the guidelines of that book. It really is the autism manual time forgot. Refine that book and add our experiences and autism is solved-notice I didn't say cured there is no need to cure autism only a need to understand it.
AUTISM QUOTE "The descendants of Autism have seen the depreciation of Autism for long enough. Please help us help you and yours and restore Autism to its former glory. AUTISM SPEAKS but it doesn't seem to listen. "
