Sorry you are wrong about most Autistic kids have high IQ, their IQ can be high or low just like anyone else the amount who are really intelligent or genius is the same for "normal folk".

Oh and the intention of her is genuine thats one thing that they can not do well lie or manipulate.

I have a loving relationship everyday with people, laughing, smile, tears even joy. I take my dog for a long walk, listening to an audio book each and everyday.
The majority of our knowledge comes from books, most of the s# comes from people reading it subjectively to their needs, instead of objectively relying on people who worked their whole lives in a single field.

You can have all the Assumptions and opinions in the world, doesnt matter really, if you cant even understand that you are no more than a bipedal primate whose goal in the universe is to spread seeds by either taking a s# or having sex..

Im the loving godfather of four healthy kids, which i help to nurture them into healthy humans with a loving worldview.

Problem is always with people and their assumptions and opinions, i do however have a tolerance for people who are clueless in the western hemisphere.

Hold on a moment....
I just read this thread and am disgusted at you OP...you really have no idea about autism and despite people telling you their experiences you throw it in their faces speaking of autistic dudes as "souless" well F you.
I suggest you actually do some research without the use of your own misguided thoughts.
You know nothing but continue to push your own warped view of Autism.
I'm out I thought this would be a thread where an OP wants to learn but after reading your posts...nope so good day.

I believe the best way to actually cope with ASD is to be honest, give them a set of characteristic traits, enforce and reward it..
I believe those tools are sufficient in society, instead of teaching them to mimic behavior, just so someone can say;" Look here is my Grandson, he has Autism, but i did a great work! " I know autism, cause i raised autistic children..

"Well, you taught an autistic child to be a soulless copy of yourself", if someone consider that an achievement.. Well im speechless..

They are far from human, and they will never be human, but they can show human like tendencies..

Are you being serious with this post?
Other than your "research" have you ever been around someone with autism?
I had two beautiful and wonderful autistic brothers (one has passed away)
You sir sound like the inhuman one in this thread.
Your views disgust me

Being totally honest. The wonderful thing of being raised in a Scandinavian country, we look at the solutions to where humans are a constant problem. We know humans will fail, so our system becomes based on pre- measuring a system that will cope with pre-programmed humanoids and their basic needs.

Does it sound inhumane? i can talk to a swede about this, it would be considered reality. Talk to a cultural outsider and its all of sudden considered inhumane.

You think this world makes progress on feelings?

Well i learned by most posts of people working with them, is that its symbiotic relationship. I believe you are a thing to her that offers something that rewards her brainchemistry, and in the same time, you as a human are also rewarded by just touch, oxytocin its called.

Don't give a toss what you believe you have no idea at all about autism and it is obvious to me you are not here to learn but to push your own stupid ignorant view and to call them souless and monsters just shows to me I would prefer to talk to them than to the likes of you....

I enjoyed your insight, it also made me realize a healthy symbiotic relationship will work in a positive manner.

A bird whispered in my ear;





They only have a few short years to learn how to learn emotional responses that everyone else takes for granted. They sound a great deal like us, except it takes us pretty much a lifetime.

That makes 3 of us now, who have actual real life experience with Autism spectrum.

I'm reading/posting, but not of/to OP.

Interesting topic.


There are certain noises that I cannot deal with and I know this sounds crazy.

If I pick a shopping cart at Walmart I will test it to make sure it is balanced if it is not I will put it back until I find one that will move quietly.

I cannot stand a noisy cart, the rhythm of a noisy shopping cart agitated me seriously. I can feel the off balance on the floor and it fibrates to my hands, this drives me crazy.

We have something in common.

There are stores I won't shop at because of their old rattletrap carts.

I have no issue testing several carts 🛒 to get one I'm happy with.

And I bet you thought you were the only one.

I also have an issue with noisy fans.

You're correct, only my partner knows, as he witnessed me doing this one day and asked me what are you doing?

I thought no one else had this issue and I have never told anyone about it, I thought people would think I was nuts.


I also have an issue with noisy fans.


Same here. I love the sound of a fan, however if anything gets caught up into it, it will drive me crazy, even if I hear a little ticking noise in the fan, I will investigate and fix the problem.

I am so happy to hear I am not the only one that has this issue. I have always considered myself stable and sound mind, but there are those little tiny things that can agitate me deeply.

"Hyperfocus is commonly found in Asperger's children who also have the ADD/ADHD comorbid."Found Here


Thank you for the link.


I have ADD really bad but I am on medication that works very well. I am convinced that autistic spectrum disorders is hereditary in many families bloodline.

My mother has this issue as well, we just learn to live with it and work around the issue.

My daughter is ADD. She has zero attention span on a "One on One". They had to use eye contact while squeezing her hands.

That was back in about 1973. Now my grandson is diagnosed high functioning Autism. Pretty sure his mom has a mild form of it too. There are similarities.

I've been reading, researching, etc for many years.

There is disfunction. And then there is actual physical brain damage.

The chemical changes from puberty often have an affect. But, there is a specialist who says our bodies go through several chemical change cycles as we grow.

Starting to ramble. Anyway, yes I agree certain types of ADD/Autism run in families.

Put a label on it.. and you destroy the kid, making it feel like a outsider and not like the rest.
How about just treat the kid as a human being


Well said, I have doctors telling me having Aspergers (Prefer high functioning autism myself) is absolutely fine, they then tell me I must behave like the rest of society expects me to.
Um what?

I am not allowed to be me apparently, and at 42 I am fine with how I am and don't feel weird or abnormal. Just I see things more logically and with less emotion than most I know, not to say I am devoid of emotion, but for all intents and purposes I come off as a normal person with fairly normal interests. (Although define normal)

I don't like watching sports or spectating. I find joy in the doing not the watching. Happy to kick a football or hit a cricket ball, but that apparently makes me weird.

I prefer my entertainment to have some intelligent writing behind it, cannot watch mindless TV shows of mindless people doing mindless things on youtube. But yeah I am the weird one.

I don't lie and don't pretend to be happy if I am not. Told all my life honesty is the best policy, but apparently it's not and makes you weird. Being normal is lying and deceiving people for the sake of keeping them happy, never mind my happiness as long as others are feeling good. And that makes me weird.

But yes, people expect you to think as they do, live as they do, act as they do otherwise you're abnormal and need a label. We humans are pretty damn stupid honestly.

Honestly I'm just a (I hope) intelligent, common sense guy who sees everything for what it is. I don't put my hand on the hotplate because I know it will burn me, while my 'normal' friends will burn themselves repeatedly, yet I am the weirdo?

I think if anything high functioning autism is normal and how humans should be and it's the majority of other humans that are the ones with the problem.

But hey it all comes down to what are the majority doing? If 95% of the population are being stupid then that is accepted as normal, regardless of how clearly stupid it is, so by default the remaining 5% are the weirdos.

For me Apsergers is listening to other 'normal' peoples interests and opinions even if you disagree and find them boring, because it's manners and it should be a two way street, but having people cut you off, show clear boredom and be rude when it's time to return the favour.

But yeah, we're the ones with the problem.


Wish we could just lose the labels and all call ourselves humans. It would make life easier for all, one you tag something it separates you from the herd. I cannot even tell most people I have it, soon as they do you see the way they treat you change.
Hell I even have had people who have known me for years and spoken to me like normal all of a sudden speak slowly and loudly like I am some deaf retarded person once they hear about it.

Getting diagnosed was the worst for me, it's actually made my life worse and a lot lonelier.

Have to laugh as I got diagnosed when I wasn't even at the doctors for that but for chronic pain management from having some kind of weird nerve damage through out my body and in the process became an Aspie.


Humans, weird animals they are. So glad I am not one.
