Over the past few weeks I have been asking you all questions about your different senses, at the same time explaining what it might be like for C. It seemed to get you all thinking, which is great.
I touched on touch
Not to mention bondage in the shower!
And famous people who you maybe would not have thought to be on the spectrum.
I had lots of great responses. And as you are now all experts…
How would you respond to this…now you know a bit more about autism, how would you describe it? As from your answers we all do these things! Dgibbs also mooted this question here and here.
I was asked recently what is autism, and even though my life has revolved round it for the past 19 years, I couldn’t answer! I must have looked pretty daft!! Because C is just C (I have written a poem about it, but I cant spout it every time someone asks!)
Dgibbs came up with its 'personal' and for C I see it as just extremes of average. Not sure I really like the word average ( a bit better than ‘normal’). But it does illustrate the point as with out extremes, there is no average!
And 'if' autism is a spectrum, I put it to you that we are all on it somewhere?
