    I took a workshop last summer on the various types of autism.

    One of the ladies leading the workshop showed us this video, this man is AMAZING! :clap2:

    Those are examples of autistic savants. Very rare, less than one hundred in the world. Some autistics on the high end of the spectrum may lead some semblance of a life. The rest do not have all the luck, they and their families are out of luck.

    We could say someone with terminal throat cancer has all the luck because their gaunt body fits into skinny jeans and they get to drink all the milkshakes they want. Of course no one would say that, but why do people say that about autism?

    Technology helps autism treatments...

    New Technologies Bolster Autism Therapies
    May 1, 2014 ~ Technology is a work in progress. It might not have all the answers to humanity’s problems, but it can go a long way toward alleviating some of them. Such is the case with the autism spectrum disorder, a group of brain development disorders characterized by difficulties in communication, social interaction and repetitive behavior that has benefited from technology in a variety of ways.

    Because they have no fucking clue.

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

    fwiw: editec may have been trying to be funny. He failed.
