The Grandfather could have been autistic as well. Before autism became a household word we all had known people who were a little different and may have been autistic. Looking back I think I knew some.
“Looking back I think I knew some.”
My 4 year old was diagnosed as high functioning autistic. His speech is delayed. Other than that, he’s fine save the occasional outburst. He seems to be pretty smart too. Seems to like Trump when he sees him on TV :-).
I’m convinced I would have had the same diagnosis if autism was better understood back in the early 70s. I was wierd/backwards too :-). I didn’t have delayed speech, but I certainly had/have many autistic traits.
I think what we will learn long term about autism is that the human brain takes 20 years to fully develop (many more for liberals). I’m sure there are many paths that brains will take to develop. We are all unique in our own way. While I can’t say I’m perfect, I’m doing fine.
