This videos demonstrates some of the key things that the neuro typical community believes as they have been told many times but refuse to stop believing it. You can compare it with telling us to do something in a particular way and not matter how you tell us we still cant get it. However you have an intact sense of executive functioning so there is no excuse for you not to be able to do this.
I do have the organisational skills and like things to be in order in the stereotypical way. However this is more due to anxiety and having a poor working memory though. I wasn’t born with any co-morbidities (other health conditions) as far as I know but I was born with Autism. There is no evidence to back this up but I believe it. I also had a fantastic mathematical ability unlike Krister but as a result of a traumatic brain injury I lost it so now I’m just like him. Also as a result of that same car accident at 17 I think I can add Dyslexia, Selective Mutism and ADD to that list. I haven’t been diagnosed with any of them but considering it took 17 years to get an Autism diagnosis I’m not going to bother. As you can see Autism is not static but evolves over the course of your life as you gain more abilities but lose others. Compensation is a thing your brain is good at due to neuroplasticity.
I did like the fact that he brought up the fact that every Autistic child has a seed of genius within them but it is utterly crushed and obliterated by the neuro typical community with their desire to see us confirm. They are so scared of how we might revolutionise the world so in their minds the only solution is demoralisation to the point of us being unable to continue. I know those thoughts as we have very lively imaginations and I was once told by my own father that if your so sick of living in this world why don’t you take yourself off to Switzerland. The context here is the euthanasia clinic there and I don’t think he was joking as while he makes a lot of jokes that is a rather serious matter.
I also watched another TEDX Youtube video The genetics of Autism that said while autism is perhaps caused by a single genetic factor in about 25% of cases; in the rest we haven’t a clue yet. She also showed a gene chart of approximately 200 different genes that they had so far discovered to have an impact on autism. This explains the wide variance that is present in autism and why it is called a spectrum.
