Will my child go to a Public School?
Often as I read over the guidelines for new autism one of the big questions is will My Child go to a Public School? Speaking from experience, most of the autism people from time gone by, the modern autism folks will not admit to- all did public schools. Our Autistic hero Alan Turing (1912-1954) father of the computer like many of us wrote the book on Autism Education. (unknowingly) Before the 1970s Autism was basically not diagnosable and as such we were simply odd strange kids often in special education or at least tutored a lot. SHOCKINGLY MOST of us made it and today do a real life and have the same autism double blind experience to tell. We have figured out the building blocks of the human mind! The Enigma (1983 Hodges) is the biography of Alan Turing and thankfully Hodges told EVERY single ODD strange detail of Alan's life and schooling and unknowingly wrote the very best autism book of all time. ALL of us doing a normal life in autism today followed those guidelines and we were all self taught, self realized success stories that modern autism professionals can't even fathom.
It is said that in the 1930s a high school education (America) then is like a college education of today is. Threw the 1960s public school education was much better and had much higher standards than it does today and the tough guidelines were WONDERFUL in helping us threw our Autism. Without the Autism label teachers were free to so what worked weather that was exploiting our splinter skills or making us behave even if that included a whack! They seen our good points and worked with them and never once set back and said he's Autistic and can't. They got used to our LACK OF EYE CONTACT and only worried about the fact we got the right answers-even if they didn't understand us. The results were results and success could not be challenged until Modern Autism was invented and suddenly all the good we did and what we figured out was suddenly insufficient. Rain Man (movie) and the Psychology Experts successfully invented Modern autism and Mankind has been cursed ever since.
If Old autism were ever admitted to a 'Geographic Fault Line' would be OBVIOUS like the San Andreas Fault is in California. Suddenly Autism progress took a nosedive and Autism became an Epidemic (of Ignorance and good intention) and today with a billion dollar empire and peer reviewed providence the only autism understood is the autism Dr Rimland Invented. If your lucky today, you still hear of crypto sensitive Autism-that is Old autism-figured out autism the new stuff was based on.
Now that Autism experts have spoken and Public Education is so lackluster to start with the chances we had of overcoming autism have simply vanished like a fart in the wind. Our very basic principles that propelled us out of autism's grip are now taboo subjects in Autism. All the stuff that time proves has worked and is blueprinted in The Enigma and copied time and again by autism people all over the world in a double-blind study beyond compare is nothing more than treason if admitted to in Modern Autism circles.
As I say Autism is BOTH MR/DD and Einstein and so naturally traditional thinkers have a very hard time connecting the two let alone thinking of the two ideas in the same thought. All of us that made it are just Rain Man on steroids with a social class thrown in for good measure. Autism is building blocks of the human mind all mapped out and it might be proven someday Autism is just another from of human thought not much different from a foreign language. The trouble is we discovered the "language" and the experts haven't so our real life Autism remains ignored as none of us have a Ph.D. in anything that would make our experience presentable to a "real expert." Certainly our real life success in autism is an Embarrassment to modern Autism. We are not in a group home or a social idiot (blunders perhaps). You probably will not see us in an Autism convention, in fact my comments were banned from the public record of several autism town hall meetings held by the CDC.
Please remember money talks and like it or not Modern Autism is a billion dollar empire and no one in the business wants to be first in line to admit to the rest of the autism story time and Dr Rimalnd never knew about or simply forgot. I suspect after my autism generations dies off, it was the last one to miss the curse, the experts will scour this blog, and the ones like it and of all of us that made it. They will rebadge our experience into research and finally progress will be made yet again in autism. Then as now it will be discovery but only on their terms. Do they really care of all the modern Autism epidemic kids in a group home? OR do they consider that success, or job security?
