I came across this story today and thought it would make a good starter for an autism thread.


"Laura James, 47, is a successful journalist and author. She’s a wife to Tim and mother to four adult children. She likes fashion, cats and writing. She’s eloquent and quick-witted.

She also has autism.

She was surprised when the idea was first suggested to her back in 2015 by a friendly nurse during a hospital stay in London."

Her story is presented in the link I provided. I wonder how many are in the spectrum without realizing and I wonder how important it is for them to know. I suppose the degree to which it affects their life.

I finally found this thread. It wasn't easy...

Here's my contribution, a list of cool movies and shows you can all watch with cool Aspie characters:

--My Name is Khan (with Shahrukh Khan)
--Mozart and the Whale (with Josh Hartnett and Radha Mitchell)
--Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (my dad doesn't think the guy is an Aspie)
--24, the series (Chloe O'Brien)

(I'm also using this rather vacuous post as a bookmark, so that I can find the thread again.)

The diagnostic criteria for autism were updated in 2013. If folks haven't seen them before, they can view them by clicking on the link above.

Temple Grandin has a good story and how she learned to handle her autism.
