if you only care about autistic people when they’re savants then you don’t actually care about autistic people. if you claim to care about those of us who can draw cities from memory or do advanced mathematics then you should also care about those of us who had to drop out of school, those of us with memory problems, those of us who feel accomplished for reading a book or getting a C on a school assignment.
hey, savantism anon again, and im not sure we're on the same page of definition of savantism since you say that it's just considered "intelligence" or "normal" in allistics. I mean savantism in being a hyperpolyglot (speaking 20 or more languages), i mean Albert Einstein, I mean being able to play any instrument in the world effortlessly, I mean being able to play a Vivaldi piece from memory after hearing it once or twice only. Thats abnormal. But apart from that, what u said makes sense! Thanks
