I’ll look into them – thank you! When I was a boy, I saw a TV movie called Son-Rise about a boy with autism. At the time it was spinning plates, stimming, etc. The whole time the parents and doctors were confused as to why he was doing everything he was doing – but even when I was little, I _knew_ why he was spinning the plates. I knew why he screamed. I knew why he withdrew and did stimming and responded to things the way he did. I couldn’t understand why others couldn’t. Later on, I saw things on Temple Grandon – I think there was a movie. All kinds of clues. But I did not like a lot of the research; ones that described autism as hypermasculine etc – that didn’t make sense to me. Or mind-blindness — in any event, things have come a long way; I looked at his bio and it seems he is a big advocate for the modern way of looking at autism and aspergers; not as a illness to be cured but as management
