Squawk about disability and society
Heh. Pocket protector's a nice touch. ; )
This is my favorite so far. My parents refuse to believ me son is autistic because he "sometimes" makes good eye contact. Thanks!DRD
Yeah, I've gotten "caught" being empathetic a number of times. Clearly non-autistic according to some...
Love it!My child continues to befuddle the psychologists because he doesn't necessarily follow the "rules" of being autistic.
My daughter talked very, very early. She said words at around 4 months, and could have conversations with full sentences before she was 1.We figured out later that is how she explored..she never crawled around, climbed on things, put things in her mouth and her ears (like her brother did). She talked. Asked questions actually. All. The. Time. That is how she explored...asking for stories to fill in what she needed to know.One of her "things" is stories (she's an Anthropology major/film minor in college now...the stories work for her!). But, usually you see delayed speech as a symptom.
You're not too far from real life with this one, unfortunately. Reader's Digest has an obnoxious column called "Normal or Nuts?" that encourages readers to send in descriptions of their quirks and be reassured that they are not autistic, etc.I've been meaning to blog about it for a while...
I like this! It's so accurate, and has a great use of satire. I like the rotary phone dial.
I SO love this one. Fits my girl to a tee. Believe it or not, she actually "has friends"!!! - Missy
It would depend. It can be like heaven when an aspie calls another aspie to "chat" about mutually shared special interests. They might run an extra high phone bill and they might not get enough sleep! XD =P
