Modern Autism's "help"
Quoted from the Emial
"The author offers advice and useful strategies for tackling day-to-day problems such as visits to the dentist or the doctor, searching for a job, sorting out personal finances, going on vacation, and dealing with public transport, as well as more intimate topics such as dating and acquiring and maintaining friendships. The chapters are structured around real-life scenarios and the challenges they present, followed by step-by-step solutions and suggestions. A final section provides a set of practical self-help tools, which encourage the reader to note down answers to the questions posed and record personal reflections."
From Rich Shull,
Now that we are hopless and helpless and poured directly from the autism mold of Rain Man the quoted paragraph is indeed seen as normal autism. OLD CRYPTO SENSTIVE AUTISM had the same issues but over all we did much better at real life. In fact, we probably did too much. Our Real life jobs, real life driving and social skills embarasses the modern autism "experts" to death espcially when they discover the basis for our success was the very elements of old working autism Dr Rimland among others made taboo.
We are "blueprinted" and have a working group of very high functioing, dare I say normal people that have over come autism but we are for sure on the wrong side of the autism timeline ,and GASP we are the very retards that the autism Experts know so well? Just how could we have figured out our very own unique to us thought process that starts out below 123 and the ABC and fully figured out is Einstein?
I included the entire Email as a courtsey but all of this autism hoopla was totally unnecessary but we are cursed by Rain Man and now we have to win a Nascar race before we can solve autism once again.
