Top 10 Things to Know About Autism (Autism Spectrum Disorder/ASD)
is CLEARLY an autosomal recessive genetic trait that is not effected by
gender, class or race. (Meaning black women are just as likely to be
autistic as white boys.) This also means autism doesn’t just
magically go away at age 18; it is forever. Negative symptoms of
Autism can get better or worse by learning coping strategies or getting
more/less overwhelmed physically and mentally.
2. There is no way vaccines could cause autism; even if autism wasn’t a genetic trait, which it is!
Autistic people tend to be far more creative, intelligent,have high
I.Q.’s, unique, strong willed, and honest more so than the average person. Autistic people are more likely to be college students, college
professors, doctors, lawyers, scientists, artists. leaders and be experts in their
field more then the average person.
a person cannot speak this doesn’t mean that person can’t hear you,
understand you, or that they are incompetent or unintelligent.
5. Being “socially stupid” does not mean that you are stupid at everything else.
6. Some Autistic kids really need home school and some really need the push for more social interaction in public school.
The main “problem for autistic people” isn’t “behavior issues” it’s
communication issues and having a nervous system that makes the person
10 times more physically and mentally sensitive then the average person which is mentally and
8. Because autistic
people are so overly sensitive to everything, people need to realize
things that are just a little harmful for all people like :
are horrible for autistic people and can cause them to be so overwhelmed they cannot speak/ are in extreme discomfort daily.
Because autistic people are so overly sensitive to everything, people need to realize things that are just a little
good for all people like:
building ramps instead of stairs to
houses, living in a clean, quiet, peaceful environment. Using pet
therapy, swimming therapy, occupational therapy, seeing a councilor once
in awhile, brushing therapy, weight therapy, having a very comfortable
bed, eating and exercising correctly, being your own best advocate
can REALLY help any autistic person be so much happier, healthier and independent.
Sometimes a parent and autistic child can do everything right and an
autistic child will still not be able to be independent, safe alone,
will still be in agony and cannot speak. Until we recognize that the
main problem for Autistic people is a hyperactive nervous system and
address this scientifically there will be little hope of change for
there’s a new bird Pokémon out there called Rowlet. A friend described it as a
Grass-type Hoothoot, which sounded really odd considering the dual-typed Grass-
and Flying-types we have so far are more plant-like than bird-like. There’s
that Sky Forme of the mythical Shaymin, but I never really got why they
classified it as a Flying-type when the most Flying-type quality about it are
its leafy wings.
“But when my friend sent me a picture of Rowlet, I completely understood why
he described it like that and why he said he wanted to catch twenty. It’s an
adorable little critter, and those bowtie-shaped leaves on its chest sure give
Honchkrow’s fedora-shaped crest a run for its money! It looks like a friendly
and easy-to-tame bird, too, but I already know that its evolutions are going to look awesome. I mean, look at Noibat, and Rufflet, heck even Starly. Those cuties evolve into fearsome spectacles, and I bet Rowlet’s evolutions are gonna follow suit.”
