This is amazing. Thank you for this... From the bottom of my heart on Joker (Upvotes: 6)
@Natural Sarcasm , it depends where on the spectrum they are. I used to work with special needs kids. One child barely showed symptoms and was a very eloquent speaker, writer, and brilliant mathematician. Another child, also very intelligent and excellent with numbers, was much farther down the spectrum and therefore couldn't speak. He could make sounds and would hit (not meaning to hurt) to try to communicate. 3 years of work with him (not alone by any means, the whole staff was great and cared so much) and he was able to form sentences. I had been transferred to the older group of kids before his breakthrough with communication, but when he was transferred to my group again, not only could he speak, but he remembered my name! A name he learned when he couldn't speak. It showed how much he was absorbing and learning, even when he didn't know how to communicate it. To be honest, I started to tear up. I was so proud of him. It was absolutely amazing. They are absolutely amazing. on press q (Upvotes: 4)

@Natural Sarcasm , that being said, I have 2 really close friends who are on the spectrum. You'd never know because they're both so social, but get over stimulated easily sometimes. They also don't always pick up on subtle interactions or sarcasm. The Autism Spectrum is so broad. It's so interesting! on press q (Upvotes: 3)
