Dr. Gee president Ohio State Univerisity
Thank you for your note regarding your experience with autism. You have certainly had a fascinating journey, and will no doubt contribute much to the scientific community’s understanding of autism and effective treatment. The Ohio State University focuses its autism research through the Research Unit on Pediatric Psychopharmacology (RUPP), including assessment of new and alternative investigational treatments. If you choose, you may contact them via their website at http://psychmed.osu.edu.
Please know of my best wishes as you continue your advocacy on behalf of autism research.

Dear President Gee,
Hello, I'm Rich Shull from Columbus Ohio.
I realize you and your staff have probably seen and heard from about every 'crackpot' on the planet and are understandably leery of letters and Emails such as mine. (and for good reason). But if you could bear with me I'd appreciate a few moments of time. I was once hailed as the next Temple Grandin in Autism Circles. Temple was a popular figure in Autism and wrote a book entitled Thinking in Pictures. I wrote a book built on hers that takes autism to the threshold of normal thoughts just like you use. Autism is both MR/DD and Einstein and there are least 200 more people like me that did the complete trip from Special Education to Einstein. We have figured out the building blocks of the human mind and IF we are right Autism can explain everything from stuttering to dyslexia to personality issues to learning abilities and dis abilities.
There is a living anthropology of us that have met online in perhaps the worlds first online living anthropology. No matter what country we are from or language we speak the autism we have figured out is the same. It seems to be the base code of all human thought. Many of us now pass Mensa tests and we were once in borderline Special Education classes or if we were old enough and never diagnosed Autistic we were typically in two grades at once. One in our splinter skill area above grade level and the other below grade level. Many of us were 10 years old before we were toilet trained and hindsight tells us it was autism's pain tolerance as the major issue. Our hero is Alan Turing (1912-1954) Father of the Computer. He was as explained in The Enigma by Andrew Hodges our "autism blueprint" we all followed.
If you could hook a computer monitor to our brain and watch the thoughts compile and then get translated to normal thoughts you could see what we see and see how the mind works. Autism is the simply the slow motion step by step thought process that forms normal thoughts. Normal thoughts are just streamlined autism thoughts. When we learn all of our autism thoughts normal thoughts just like you use are the result. It took many of us 30 and 40 years to learn our natural for us programmed thought base on our own. Autism has never been in a text book before. No research in Psychology or Education or Medicine is even asking the right questions to discover what we have figured out. Peer Review Autism banned us years ago as one they don't have a clue to what we are talking about and no other research discipline has a line on our story or anthropology.
Add modern designer Autism in the mix and we don't stand a chance of ever being heard. I was once loved by all the autism "empire" and when I would not water down my story to the low modern autism standards they dropped me. I had many different runs in with the late Dr. Rimland father of the movie Rain Man and if you will the daddy of modern Autism. There are at least 4 more books like Thinking in Pictures to be published and Modern Autism ignores us all.
Please think this over, and look over my blog and consider helping us break the ice. I'm sure the science behind us will be earth shattering and the discoveries we have in plain site, really will add 1000s of chapters to the psychology books.

All truth passes threw three stages.
One, it is ridiculed
Two, it is violently opposed
Three, it is accepted as self -evident
I would be honored to meet you, or a staff member in person and explain some of The Enigma to you.
