Reverse Autism/ it was solved before it was invented.
Ironically this logo is VERY TRUE autism is indeed reversible and if we could turn back time to pre Rain Man- Dr. Rimland (father of Rain Man the movie) days when Autism was just odd strange kids absently overcoming autism. Now it is too late and autism is a mission of mis informed experts and professionals and millithrong of Autism mania all self serving the ideal of autism. Now that autism is a legendary condition and telethons and TV shows and the popular culture" knows" all about autism ,or think they do we are as a culture now endorsing autism as the hopeless, helpless condition it has become. Since the Rain Man era re wrote and reinvented autism with the advent of the Movie Rain Man the nearly figured out autism of time gone by has taken a back seat to the real time autism propagated by the stardom of Rain Man the movie.
Autism used to iron itself out in the day before diagnosis and when education was more effective. Most of us overcame in our own way. We often turned out as Einstein. We often figured out the building block thoughts of the mind. Our double blind real life success is not even on the radar of psychology or Autism research professionals. While all of humanity has been cheated from, the true facts of the mind we have figured out ,our journey from special education to Einstein. It will not even be noteworthy in the realm of peer review autism. In fact they hope against hope people like me that build on Temples Grandin's work will never be heard. The late Dr. Rimland made sure we were not heard , our simple success is counter everything modern autism "knows" to be true. To bad the new age self elected experts of autism are the experts of autism they invented- not the autism we know and love and have figured out to be the building blocks of their mind. Our wild trip from the bottom of the gene pool to Einstein and even social people is probably the last generation of people to be blessed with out the diagnosis of autism and the chance to absently overcome.
Yours truly and many more like me were once Temple Grandin's and we added volumes to her work 'absently' and came out with normal thoughts. Modern psychology is in awe of Temple but has no clue if you add to her work understand her picture thoughts the results are the normal thoughts that seemingly no autistic person can do. A hint, the autism lack of eye contact is a precious gift and if psychology knew how to read us while we were out of the loop they would understand how the mind works and indeed how those lack of eye contact thoughts predict the Einstein ability in is. If psychology would listen to us and our parents teachers and tutors or even read about the lack of lack of eye contact in The Enigma (Hodges 1983) they would learn to wait for our contact to return to indicate were done thinking in pictures -daydreams kind of- and our optic vision is back on as is our 5 senses when eye contact returns. When we learn how (by happenstance) to read and think with our lack of eye contact thoughts; something modern good for you autism doesn't allow anymore ,we figured out normal everyday human thoughts. So much for progress.
Our story, our experience and our success has never been in a text book before and we charted new ground and cured our own autism. Sadly, the real price of success is the fact mankind has lost track of the keys to his mind. While we offer the next 1000 chapters in psychology , I guess even with all of that we are too little too late. Autism is indeed Reversible and I 1st remember the late Dr Rimland coining that term as he was building his ignorance empire that still stands today. Perhaps he meant it as, he knew if the old guys, like me, ever got the chance to expose our autism journey and success we would revert back to the old autism and "gasp" modern autism would be seen as a farce of good intention . It is no wonder I was banished from the record of the Autism Town Hall mmeetings of the 1990's heled by the CDC (American health agency) as the most offended people there, Dr Rimland and modern day autism practitioners were horrified of my trip down memory lane that exposed old working autism.
