Oh my god, Do you people know anything? Autism isn't a mental disorder, it's a whole spectrum of things. The reason why they're different is because their brain develops too fast during childhood and eventually wires differently than a normal brain. They don't have the higher-level thinking skills like logic, reason, or reading comprehension, which is why they have trouble in those areas. They are very creative and tend to be right-brained. They also have trouble with their social skills. Asperger's is a mild form of autism, and those people tend to be very intelligent. My sister is autistic. She's not retarded.
Ohh and 151 the brain capabilities of an autist depend on what type of autism they have. Maybe your sister has troubles in those areas but an autist savant normally doesn't. Most savants have an IQ of a genius, which would be ( i'm not sure) higher than 150. So maybe you should do more research, because every form of autism is very different.
Temple Grandin anyone? She's one of the most brilliant people I've ever met and she's autistic. She also singlehandedly changed the way slaughterhouses across America operate and invented a new, more humane conveyor system for cattle in the slaughterhouses. I've had the pleasure to meet her and have her lecture in one of my classes since she's a professor at my university and she's an absolute genius.
299, don't act like you know shit... 274 probably only has deafness as a disablility. I have severe hearing loss also. 299 allow me to educate you, because obviously you are a dumbass. asl sentences are way different than spoken english and it's hard to learn what you can't hear. Asswipe.
What a bitch whore. I hope she falls off here bike and gets small rocks stuck in her knee and cries.
8- When you insult someone (especially when it is aimed at intelligence level) you probably want to try to make yourself as informed and professional as possible. Sorry to say but you didn't come anywhere near that. Plus your comment is just flat out terrible. That doesn't help your cause. Then you try to cover it up with some BS excuse that doesn't even correlate with your comment. Way to go.
