It saddens me that the Wrights are so blinded by their own situation that they can't see they're overgeneralizing and speaking for many people who would patently disagree with their viewpoints. (Not in terms of additional support from the government, because that's CERTAINLY needed, but moreso the f...

/me wonders whether this explanation might make some more sense?

A little less about bald mice, a little more about autism. ;)

I wonder if there's any therapists in your local area who are familiar with autism in adults and could maybe offer your day-to-day advice/help on how to navigate your life better. I ditto the couples counseling suggestion above, although I would try to get a counselor who likewise has some experienc...

Yep, it does. It seems to me that something like that would cause more than just autism, though. Depending on how you were affected and where your brain had been most changed, you could end up with just about any neurodevelopmental issue. To some extent, yes. Autism isn't just a particular brain ar...

Or as someone else defined it as: "If there's at least one standard deviation's difference between your verbal and performance IQs, that should be dxed as a Learning Disability, in the IQ > 70 sense used in the US. That should not be termed borderline MR to my understanding." When one is using the ...

I do not recall ever having been bitten by a bald mouse. You were probably just too young to remember. :P Srsly though, I don't get why bald mice specifically have any real similarity to autism. The idea that our stem cells stay too young, too long, is interesting, but... I'm not sure. I guess I'll...

Truthfully, there's been some serial killers or mass murderers who seem to fit the profile of autism. But there's seems to be many more who are definitively not ASC. But, honestly, it's not the autism that's the problem; it's general family dysfunction and having a f****d up life. It's people feelin...

Just for clarification, in the States learning disabilities or LD have average IQ or higher. Actually you can have both, lower IQ and an LD, but that's more difficult to sort it out, because the LD must be independent from the lower IQ. Meaning that a person has IQ 70 for example, but has difficult...

in rare cases, someone can be diagnosed with coexsisting LD after being already diagnosed with Asperger's only if it becomes apparent later...as in an IQ below 70 (mild LD). my main source is the subtext from dsm IV-TR. the second source is myself. I am diagnosed as borderline intellectually disabl...

Here's a couple ideas I came up with today I would like to run by the group. 1. Putting a mat on the floor of Mom and Dad's room that our son could sleep on as a transition mechanism. If he can learn to sleep on the mat by himself then maybe that would be a first step to him learning how to sleep a...

Just to clarify, the genetic conditions listed in the blog post are definitely very rare, i.e., 1:10,000 or fewer. But it wouldn't be unusual for certain physical features, especially facial, to occur more frequently with "idiopathic" autism. A cause or causes are unlikely to solely affect the brai...
