Dear Mr .Grossman
,Readers/ PLEASE NOTE;The enclosed letter, sent registered mail, is a direct copy of one posted on the blog Pre Rain Man Autism and your response will also be posted on the blog unedited and directly quoted.
Since the Autism Society of America is set up as the 'official provider' of autism information and it operates as a public trust and accepts public funds it has an obligation to investigate and disseminate and even research autism to the fullest extent possible. No stone should be left unturned, no lead should go uninvestigated
. Sadly it seems obvious the ASA has been very negligent in doing its job. There is an entire undercurrent in autism circles of people like me that have over come the condition. There is, in fact an entire Anthropology of autistic people from all over the world and we all build on Temple Grandin's
work and many of us have honed Rain Man's thoughts to the point where they nearly mimic traditional thoughts. We have been begging you for years now to own up to all of autism not just the parts you like that fit your ideal of Autism as an MR/DD condition.
For the sake of autism and mankind we ask you to step up to the plate, fulfill your obligation to the public and investigate ALL of autism. I predict if our anthropology were investigated the following results would be obvious,
*Autism is both MR/DD and Einstein.
* Autism is the building blocks of the human mind.
*Figured out Autism mimics traditional thoughts.
*Autism is simply the sub thoughts humans must do to think normally (never in a text book before).
*Future Autism Schools could copy our success and have our students mainstreamed by 6th
*Autism is the same no matter what language we speak or country we are from.
*Our anthropology's milestones can be copied in modern autism for better results in modern autism.
Just for the record, ('just in case you have not heard of us') Our anthropology consists of mostly older Autistic people from all over the world that figured out autism's thoughts. Many of us do nearly normal lives and some even drive. We have some younger people in our group as well that also have discovered their own natural insight. We have completed a large long term double blind autism experience and as such figured out what makes our minds work (as well as yours). We have discovered the autism thought process largely happens during the lack of eye contact autistic are noted for. That is our "thinking time" or should be. Those of us in the real world insert our autism thoughts there. Those Autism thoughts are invisible to anyone but us and the onlookers in our lives, only see the lack of eye contact as any clue at all to autism.
The thoughts we insert and use to overcome autism have never been in a text book before and would present as MR/DD very easily (it appears they do as far as your concerned). BUT Autism is ALSO Einstein thus your Savant and Rain Man Characters. No amount of 'proper' autism research could discover what we have, as no researcher has the natural inside knowledge of thinking autistically
to even know what questions to ask. We all build on the work of Temple Grandin's
Thinking in Pictures. Our figured out honed autism thoughts allow us to overcome autism and mimic traditional thought, our anthropology's experience and well worn autism blueprint of success has been documented time and again and sadly is the essance
of old Crypto
Sensitive Autism that modern autism forgot. Since our experience has never been in a text book before and it is both MR/DD and Rain Man the traditional thinkers charged with researching autism are simply at a major disadvantage. I predict once our thoughts are figured out by psychology there will little if any difference between the village idiot, Rain Man, Einstein or even someone from our anthropology that pretty much does a normal life. In the end autism will only be a few MIS
placed, unrealized autism thoughts that make us or break us.
Many of us are pioneers in our fields as we have tapped the Einstein side of Autism. If Autism is really the core thought sub routine of the human thought as it appears to be once it is understood by psychology at large it will be obvious as can be WHY some of us make it so well and others don't. EVERYONE in autism could do much better if our blueprint were followed. Of Course the ASA has a very long history of ignoring old working autism people like me and the 200 or so of us from all over the world with the same autism story to tell. It took many of us in our anthropology 40 years or more to overcome autism and self teach our own condition to ourselves. AUTISM has never been in a text book before and we did this feat on our own simply by figuring out our natural to us, default thought process. Our autism is the same autism as the current stuff is only it seems we have more success in overcoming.
If autism would simply unite our anthropology and glean our insight and see how we did it our "blueprint" would not only open up Autism to new horizons but will also add 1000s of pages to the psychology books as well. I know we are on the wrong side of the Rain Man era autism time line but, still I urge you to do the right thing and take a moment and go back to square one and rediscover Crypto
Sensitive Autism and see what heights we have taken it to. Mankind, as well as, autism is waiting for our answers and you hold the key. Please do the right thing and fulfill your obligation and investigate ALL of autism.
You have my address, some of you know even know of our anthropology and its time the ASA or even a third party investigate all of Autism so that man kinds mind can finally be totally figured out. Weather you like to admit it or not you are holding back man's discovery of the building blocks of the human mind. If you will not give us the time of day PLEASE we beg of you at least admit to us, and set us free so other branches of Psychology can discover our treasures and insights! Your very own kids will be the better for it! Honestly, if we didn't hold the keys to man's mind I would not bother leading the charge against your billion dollar empire that has no room for its forgotten figured out past, especially when admission to us will not be a feather in you cap.
