Long good article on autism spectrum

This is a long article but worth reading.

I first read this about 7 years ago. It really stuck with me, since I am in the computer field, have kids, and know many other families some of which have two techies as parents. And some kids with problems.

I see all 4 of my siblings and I as functional Asperger people.

Autism spectrum is part genetic, part environmental. Love your kids. Raising them, talking to them, teaching them, playing with them should be your most important hobby from when they are born. especially if you are a high IQ person.

If you always work at being extroverted with your baby and sharing sound games even before they can talk, they get less chance to become introverted. Think out loud. Ask them what they want. Name it show it. At first they'll point, then they will make sounds. Then they will say it.

If you don't teach them, they way may go into their own silent world.

DON"T LET THAT HAPPEN.
