No. If you're asking whether people with autism have higher intelligence than people without, it depends on what autism spectrum disorder they have. A person with aspergers or… high-functioning autism will probably have higher intelligence than those without, and a person with low-functioning (severe) autism will have mental handicaps.. If your question is whether people with autism have a special form of intelligence that other people don't have, then here is how I would put it. The vast majority of the information that a non-autistic person absorbs and remembers is social ("I think he was angry with me," or "Jill's birthday is April 28") or relevant to everyday life, (Which maybe why the adaptable, insightful social butterfly's brain completely shuts down in math and chem class. They aren't unintelligent. They have a great amount of social intelligence.), whereas the vast majority of the information that an autistic person absorbs and remembers is factual or sensory (the appearance of the bricks of a building, the equations taught in class, minute details relating to their "fixation" topics.). If your question is whether the experience of an autistic person is superior to that of a non-autistic person is somehow divine, the answer is no. The experience of an autistic person allows them a very unique perspective on the world, and may even lead them to make great contributions in an area of their fixation or interest, but it is the abilities of a non-autistic person that allow you to make friends or go grocery-shopping. Both types of people and experiences are needed in the world, and no type is superior. As to whether the experience of an autistic person is divine, probably not. It is hard enough to find a convincing argument for God's existence, and it's assuming a lot to say that autism is a divine experience or "God's will."
Yes. May studies link towards psychedelics, which are present in the urine of these subjects. Psychedelics are known by many drug takers to expand the mind. Hence, autism is a… result of greater intelligence.
Yes i do have autism I'm on the spectrum I have very mild Asperger's syndrome. Why are you asking a general "you" this question? mys sister has autism and dispratsia and… attachment and sensory issues and aspergers and i have trates every1 here autistic dont understand how much people try to make your lives happy and then the slightest thing wrong you think that they dont love you because they do and even if the dont show it Y WOULD THEY HATE YOU people hate people the same every single one of you atre unique in your own ways

The diagnostic criteria change periodically. It must be remembered that autism falls on a spectrum, ranging from very serious cases to very mild. Everyone is different. The th…ree most commonly discussed types of autism are classic autism, Asperger's disorder and PDD-NOS, which stands for pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwhise specified.
there is mild, moderate and severe.
Some would claim that 'Pervasive Developmental Disorder - Not Otherwise Specified' (PDD-NOS) or 'Atypical Autism' is the least severe (note: I did not use the term 'mildest' a…s Autism is never mild) form of Autism, but it has become widely acknowledged of recent that these separate categories are best included under the heading of 'Asperger's Syndrome' as there are no real valid reasons left existing for them to have separate labels.. More and more, professionals are realising that the differences between people with Asperger's syndrome, and their developmental differences especially, are the result of the myriad of strategies such people employ to cope in an often hostile or aversive world, a result of the unlikeliness of any given person with AS being influenced much by those around them, a result of the wide range of impacts their environments and upbringing have on them. E.g. it is possible for a person to be mute at one end of the Asperger's spectrum and yet another to be prosaically articulate and exceedingly verbose at the other end. With every permutation imaginable between.
Absolutely not! Autism and Down syndrome have little to nothing in common.
Pervasive developmental disorders, often known as autism spectrum disorders, include the following conditions. . autism . Asperger's Syndrome (AS) . pervasive developme…ntal disorder not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) . Rett Syndrome . childhood disintegrative disorder (CDD) Sometimes, the term autism spectrum disorder refers only to autism, Asperger's Syndrome, and PDD-NOS. It has been mentioned that in future editions, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) will remove Asperger's Syndrome as a separate condition, including it under autism. Some of these conditions can be known by alternate terms: . Autism can also be referred to as Kanner syndrome, early infantile autism, or childhood autism. . Asperger's Syndrome might be the same as high-functioning autism. . Pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified can also be called atypical autism.
kanners autism, or more commonly known as classic autism. It is low functioning and sufferers usually have below average IQ. There are other types of autism like savants (rain… man) which is extremely rare. Also Aspergers syndrome is under the autistic spectrum although there is speculation whether its a condition of its own, sufferers usually have average or above average IQ and can often be classified as high functioning autism. I have Aspergers syndrome.
No, rocking back and forth isn't a form of Autism - Autism is aneurological difference, it comes with many characteristics, notjust rocking back and forth. The rocking can be …a characteristic ofAutism, it's a form of stimming which is self-stimulation Autisticpeople use to calm themselves.
This can be true. AS is considered a high functioning autism however it is within its own case. AS brains are noted for having significantly different developement of the whit…e matter in comparison to others so it isn't a milder form of a different autism.
Autism is taken from the Greek word Auto, for self.
No, of course colour blindness is not a form of autism. Autism is aneurological difference that results in social and communicationproblems, along with other issues like senso…ry problems andexecutive functioning problems. Autism isn't even comparable tocolour blindness.
I think autism only ranges between mild to severe. it doesn't have a profound form.im not suree abt it..coz i came here searching for the same question myself.
Childhood Disintegrative Disorder ( CDD) has several characteristics of autism involving developmental regression in communication and motor skills, but doesn't share the exa…ct same framework of autism. CDD represents a much more drastic loss of skills, and occurs at an older age than autism. Classic autism typically occurs between 15-30 months of age, when kids learn to speak, walk, and eat with utensils. CDD typically doesn't occur until 3-4 years of age, thus affected kids may have been toilet trained, and learned everything they should up to that age, and then their developmental trajectories suddenly stop and reverse cycle, going all the way back to infantilism; diapers, nonveral, etc. CDD is much more related to profound mental retardation than typical autism. It's also much less common than autism. Autism affects about 1 in 150 children, and CDD affects about 1 in 100,000 children.
Hi! My name is Kate and I have Autism. Approximately 1 in 68 children have autism (1 in 42 boys and 1 in 189 girls). Autism can be caused by a number of factors (no vaccines D…O NOT cause Autism), including genetic factors and mutations which are the two main causes. No one gene causes Autism, but rather it is caused by a number of genes. Anyone of any gender, race, nationality, socio-economic level, etc. can have Autism, and it appears between 1-3 years of age in most cases.
