Sean Barron one of Modern Autism's Best
Columbus Ohio Wednesday, April 29.2008
I was among the standing room only crowd at the Columbus Speech and Hearing Center to hear Sean Barron speak on his book and his success at over coming autism. We were very privileged to hear him and he has over came autism extremely well. I applaud Sean and his partner on their success.
Frankly we can and did do better at Autism years ago before Autism became a Designer Condition. Autism is the same today as it was in the 1600s with the story Boy from Alverez. Autism is the same autism Alan Turing used to invent the computer with. Autism is still the building blocks of the human mind and still the starts out a few steps below 123 and the ABCs and properly completed ends up in Einstein territory. There is a whole other dimension to autism that IS proven and documented and even blueprints old working autism (The Enigma 1983 Hodges) but that is not the new autism of today. Post Rain Man Autism is a farce of good intentions and horrible misunderstandings and pure out right peer review dishonor. Neglecting Crypto Sensitive Autism guidelines (old autism) made this new Autism Epidemic possible. In our day we simply (the lucky ones) out grew our autism and in modern times the epidemic is created when we are diagnosed age three and labeled "Autistic" and treated as such. That handicap of early diagnosis and the too much help and entirely wrong education system assures the Autism epidemic is just that.
I am the same age a Sean and unlike Sean was never diagnosed until late in life like most of my anthropology was (200 + of us all doing more than Temple Grandin) . Growing up undiagnosed and missing the curse in an era of strict discipline and people (unknowingly) exploiting our obsessions and splinter skills we over came autism shockingly well. MOST OF US Function well are social and drive and life partners. Many of us are leaders in our fields. Our Hero Alan Turing was Father of the computer. We all take Temple Grandin's Work BUILD on it and take it to the threshold of real life. We polish and figure out the autism thought process and turn it in to something close to normal thoughts. We are very fine honed versions of Rain Man. The thoughts we have figured out take place during the LACK OF EYE CONTACT and we figured them out in an Era gone by, when absently we were allowed to do that via our obsessions. Working with our obsession were our learning hallway and hope for connecting. MODERN autism took away all the chances and hope we had. Look at the mess it created? Obsessions and splinter skills the saving grace of Autism were the first thing axed by the new age autism. Leaving out our Success Quotient really did cripple autistic people.
None of this invisible thought process has ever been in a text book before it is new knowledge as far as man is concerned. It is the Di Vinci Code of the human mind Autism is both MR/DD and Einstein and everything in between. Sadly not one expert in autism is big or bold enough to listen and even investigate the claims of old Autistic. It would be obvious admitting to us would ruin this modern day autism charade that is crippling our autistic kids and families. This shoddy autism research empire has cheated mankind out of the very core of human thoughts that psychology and education have been clambering for. It is very easy to ignore us the autism industry only sees the "people it invented" and the way they present it is "obvious" we are just too stupid to be smart. Really, all that proves is the experts that think they autism don't. Since our knowledge has never been in a book before and comes "from the Bottom of the Gene Pool" and our anthropology instantly embarrasses new autism and they have a billion dollars of empire to protect the odds of old working autism being able to give up its Di Vinci Code remain lost in the Autism Epidemic. The only hope for an Autistic Parent and Child is to read The Enigma (1983) By Andrew Hodges It is the biography of Alan Turing 1912-1954 and it unknowingly explains all of autism by examining every strange detail of Alan's life including late talking. Alan's story is our Autism blueprint we all followed (unknowingly).Read the book and see how autism was bound to falter in modern times when the so called experts took over.
Jessica Kingsley Publishers were major presenters of the event and publishers of many new age Autism books. At one time they were keen on publishing my Book Pre Rain Man Autism and after reading it and discovering I would NOT change my story to reflect new autism and the fact I functioned too high were among the reasons it was dropped. Chapters on autistic driving coming out Gay and Autistic and the intense social course that gave us a real advantage in life were just too much. Exposing 200 more like me from all over the world with the same success and story to tell were just too much for an empire publisher to handle. TO be fair ALL autism publishers eventually turned down my book after I would not agree to water it down to an autism fairy tale required of todays modern autism. I know of at least 4-5 more books like it that are waiting to be published we all emulate The Enigma and we all do some sort of a real life, MOST of us missed Rain Man's Curse. I was so serious on this book and its un disseminated knowledge I was homeless a few days saving enough money to self-publish the book only to have it slammed by Dr Rimland and his empire -- it seems Dr Rimland was not thrilled with our success.
CORRECTION: I have been advised Jessica Kingsley Publishers were not sponsors of this event.Future Horizons Autism Publishers are the publishers and their catalogs were at the event. My apologies.
