  1. Are you better at non-verbal communication or are you better at verbal? Do you think generally, people on the spectrum are better at non-verbal communication or are they better at verbal? In what ways? Or do you think that it just depends on the person?

    I saw this news article the other day. This came up because recently in the UK they've scrapped the tax disk and they're doing it all online now. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-29442524 I'm wondering if that boy as Autism. I couldn't find any articles which mentioned it but it seems very likely to me. I mean, who else would collect tax disks like that? And he somehow looks Autistic as well. In that case I suppose that he won't be coping too well with the end of the tax disk in the UK. Any ideas?
  4. Dr. Stephanie Seneff, research scientist from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), made a dire prediction earlier this month during an event sponsored by the Groton Wellness organization. She said, Seneff was leading a presentation that showed a strong correlation between the increased use of Roundup starting in the early 1990’s and the rising number of autism diagnoses over the past three decades. In 1975, 1 in 5,000 children were diagnosed with autism. The current rate is 1 in 68, and it shows no sign of slowing down. “At today’s rate, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic.“ Roundup is a weed killer produced by Monsanto that contains glyphosate, a substance that has been shown to cause toxic side effects similar to those found in autism. Monsanto has also been producing genetically modified crops (GMOs) that are designed to withstand the effects of Roundup weed killer. The use of GMOs has come under fire in the United States during recent years. Dr. Seneff is a veteran researcher who has published several papers on the effects of nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins. During her presentation, she explained how glyphosate kills beneficial gut bacteria and causes deficiencies in key minerals, including cobalt, iron, and manganese. Studies have shown that children with autism often have biomarkers indicative of excessive glyphosate, including zinc and iron deficiency, low serum sulfate, seizures, and mitochondrial disorder. Similar correlations between autism and glyphosate are also found in deaths caused by senility. She raised other frightening statistics, including studies that have shown that Americans have ten times the glyphosate accumulation as Europeans, and that glyphosate has been discovered in excessively high quantities in the breast milk of American mothers, as much as 760 to 1,600 the allowable limits in European drinking water. While it may be tempting to dismiss these findings as the extreme work of one researcher, it is important to note that Dr. Seneff is a respected scientist with an impressive background in research on nutritional deficiencies and the impact on environmental toxins. She has published 10 articles in various scientific journals, seven as head author, and she worked as a Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. And while correlation does not necessarily indicate causation, the extremely high Pearson Correlation Coefficient score of 0.99 is difficult to ignore. This, combined with the extreme prevalence of foods containing GMOs that were likely treated with Roundup in the United States is enough to give anyone pause. Glyphosate can be found in soft drinks and candies sweetened by corn syrup, chips and cereals containing soy, and cattle and chicken fed soy. Basically, in the United States, it’s in just about any food that isn’t organic. Monsanto maintains that glyphosate and GMOs are safe, listing a series of studies on their website at http://www.monsanto.com/products/pages/roundup-safety-background-materials.aspx.

    Autistic Town

    Imagine a town. It has a population of 10,000 people. It has a fire brigade, a police force, a council, a train station, a bus station, shops, banks, churches, pubs, clubs, parks, street cleaners, schools, housing estates and pretty much all the usual infrastructure of the average town. But this town is different to any other town. This town is populated entirely by people on the spectrum. First thing first, what would such a town be like? What would the living conditions be like? How about the working conditions? In this town every manager and every director would have asperger's or autism. Every worker would also have autism. One day however a man called Tom comes to the town. Tom is different to every person in this town. He is Neuro Typical and doesn't have autism. What would Tom's experience be? He needs a job and looks through the local newspaper. He applies. He gets an interview. How would his interview go? If he got the job how would his job go? Years pass by and one day the valley in which the town is situated is due to be filled with water because a city with 200,000 Neuro Typical people 50 miles away needs more water. The whole town is due for evacuation. What would the reaction be? How would the people of this town cope with having to move, having to leave their home town?
  6. Which symptoms (or traits) of Asperger's Syndrome do you struggle with the most? For me, it's not being able to understand certain instructions, and not being able to understand humor, they really affect my interactions with people and make me feel insecure, because of this, I'm never fully sure what I'm meant to say, or how to reply to things, and is just really awkward
