i'm doing an autism awareness thing with my mom. this is just a survey to see how many of you know what it is. i'll explain if you don't.

It's like a social 'syndrome' right?

Being unable to socialise or behave appropriately in crowded places?

 

I dunno...

yeah people with aspergers are more likely to end up geniuses too. there's a book written from the perspective of a kid with aspergers. it's called the curious incident of the dog in the night time. it's a brilliant beyond brilliant book.

So, why are you surveying Autism-awareness?

my little step-brother is autistic. doesn't talk, no eye contact. responds to very few, simple phrases. the whole deal. i've been doing this since i moved here. house to house charity, everything. at one point i even wanted to become a therapist for children with special needs but it requires alot of devotion and i get frustrated easily. my mom's doing her masters over the net in behavior analysis so she can help my step-brother. it's just a part of my life now.

:yes: yea i read an article on autism.. its pretty sad actually :( .. they say even their connection with their mom is lacking.. almost absent to an extent that the kid might not even recognise her.. :(:(

yeah and most of them hate being touched or held. but my stepbrother isn't like that.. he hates being alone and he likes being hugged while other autistic kids usually go quite crazy when you try to hug them.

not all of them. 50% of them never even learn how to talk. but the possibility of them being really amazing in one particular area is higher that with other people. but then it'll be that they'll be brilliant at this one thing.. and well.. not so brilliant with everything else.
