Is there a symbol for neurotypical people?
`Neurotypical people` are what none Autistic Spectrum`disordered` people are considered to be. It has been said that if it were not for those for instance having Asperger`s that mankind would still be sitting around the fire talking, & that the people with Asperger`s are the ones who went off & created new inventions, indeed it is now thought that Einstein himself had Asperger`s for instance. Asperger`s is a `hidden` disability, we look `normal` (whatever that means), & indeed people on this section of the Autistic spectrum have average, or above average IQ`s, although just how one tests the IQ of an Autistic person with no speech I do not know. However are brains function differently to `neurotypical persons`,& one of our main difficulties is socializing, & that can lead to a very lonely life, indeed females are more likely to be misdiagnosed as depressed, which they no doubt are as well, but the root cause of this an be Asperger`s. There are some very well known & successful people with Asperger`s, but they are the exception rather than the rule. Despite films like `Rainman` Autism is still not widely known about, let alone what it means to have an Autistic Spectrum `Disorder, indeed `Rainman` might have caused more confusion in the general public, as `Idiot Savant`, as people like the person portrayed in the film are extremely rare & no-one understands where their particular amazing abilities in a particular field stem from. The general public tends to consider us `wierd``Viva la difference` I say, after all where would we be without Einstein, Newton, another thought in retrospect to have had Asperger`s. It is often misstakenly considered to be a male `condition`, but due to females tending to be more socialable creatures it goes under diagnosed in females. There also tends to be an hereditary factor involved, which makes a mockery of those who think that people like me don`t ever marry, not all Autistic Spectrum `Disordered people are born out of wedlock!!
Indeed if Hans Asperger had not been Austrian, like Hitler himself more notice would have been taken of his findings, but because of Hitler, he was ignored for many years, certainly in Europe, I don`t know about America as an American Doctor was making the same discoveries at the same time as Dr Hans Asperger. what we do know now is that brain imaging can discover it in very young infants, & the earlier the intervention & appropriate help a child receives the better & more likely they are to have a happy & successfull life. Who knows the discoveries that are being made using umbilical blood that has been `banked` at birth, has been shown to reverse the effects of Cerebal Palsy for instance, maybe it could help in Autistic Spectrum `Disorders`?, & unlike umbilical cord blood from someone else there aren`t any complications that this potentially could cause. As things stand in the UK, even those with Asperger`s are very unlikely to ever have a job, & with our current situation where it can run into the hundreds after a handfull of jobs, what chance do todays adults with Asperger`s have?
I admit that I do not know what you mean by a `symbol` for `neurotypical` people, but what I have written is what the difference is: & to sumerise it is those not on the `Autistic Spectrum`
Absolutely any career that a neurotypical people can have.
Yes - autistic people can do anything that neurotypical people can do.
Why are neurotypical adults rude? Not all Autistic people are rude, to suggest otherwise is prejudice - often Autistic people are more polite than neurotypical people because they've had social skills training and are more sensitive to social rules than neurotypical people because they have to be in order to pass as neurotypical. Autistic people don't always understand social rules, such as being polite rather than being blunt or honest, this can sometimes come across… Read More
Yes - autistic people can do anything that neurotypical people can do.
Autistic people (not people with autism) do learn to control their emotions, they have to for the sake of their own sanity and ability to function. Autistic people experience emotions in different ways to Neurotypical people, Autistic people are also more empathetic than Neurotypical people, which can be overwhelming if not controlled.
Autistic people can do any type of job - although autistic people may be better with jobs that deal with logic and may be worse with jobs dealing with people, autistic people are expert in adapting so can take on many different roles. Remember autistic people are as varied as neurotypical people, we can do anything neurotypical people can.
Yes, of course - autistic people are just as capable of getting a driving licence as neurotypical people.
No, not all autistic people act the same - autistic people are as different and varied as neurotypical people. Like with neurotypical people all autistic people will share common traits, but once you meet one autistic person then you've met one autistic person...we're all very different.
Yes, of course people with Autism can be good parents. Autistic people are as likely to be good parents as neurotypical people, if they have Autistic children then they are all the better for them than neurotypical parents would be as they understand what it's like to be Autistic. As many people with Autism are bullied they can help children to deal with similar problems too.
Yes - autistic people can do anything that neurotypical people can do. I'm autistic and have lived on my own for 7 years, I also moved away from home long before my neurotypical friends, and I'm even immigrating. We tend to prefer living alone.
People with Asperger's Syndrome have brains that are "wired" differently. This is why they see the world differently from people with neurotypical brains.
Yes, autistic people can live as long as neurotypical people or people with other neurologies. There is nothing about autism that would shorten a persons lifespan.
No, not all Autistic children are savants. Many Savants are Autistic, but most Autistic people are as normal as Neurotypical people with no particularly special talents.
Yes, Asperger Syndrome is on the autism spectrum. The only real difference between Asperger Syndrome and Autism is that those who were diagnosed as having Asperger Syndrome had no developmental delays in childhood. In adulthood an Autistic person and a person with an Asperger Syndrome cannot be distinguished, and Asperger Syndrome was merged with Autism because it was not enough of a difference to consider it a separate condition - especially considering everyone develops at… Read More
Autistic people are just as varied in their tastes as neurotypical people or allistic people as a whole. There is no one type of art that Autistic people like in general, everyone has different tastes.
Autistic people go to school where they live. Some Autistic people are put into special education, but most will go to school in mainstream schools just like most Neurotypical people.
There are no 'solutions' to autism because autism isn't a problem that requires a solution. Autism is a neurological difference, autistic people are not worth less than neurotypical people
We go to college/university, we get jobs, we buy homes, we get married, and we have children. Generally speaking just like neurotypical people we get on with our lives as normal.
No, in fact ABA is considered to be abusive towards Autistic people. At it's best it is a form of training used to attempt to force an Autistic person to act like they are neurotypical - at it's core it assumes neurotypical is normal and that Autistic people are inferior, as such it is ableist and can teach low self-esteem in Autistic people, it also puts the burden on Autistic people to add to their… Read More
Autism is a neurological difference. People with Autism experience the world differently to neurotypical people and often have problems with social or communication skills, however they tend to have increased abilities with logic.
Allism is sometimes used by autistic self-advocates as a term for non-autistic people. Autism comes from the Greek 'autos' for 'self' (self-oriented), allism comes from the Greek 'allos' for 'other' (other-oriented). Most people use 'neurotypical' or 'typically developing', but those aren't exact antonyms because some people aren't neurotypical but aren't autistic either - they have other neurodevelopmental differences, such as Down Syndrome or whatever.
No, the main problems Autistic people face are with social skills and social communication - an Autistic person can be social, they can enjoy being social, and they can mimic neurotypical social behavior, but they will still always struggle. Autistic people have to put a lot more effort into even the most basic social interaction as they have to be always aware of their behavior and actively think about their body language in a way… Read More
Autism doesn't do anything to the mind, the mind is autistic - just like a neurotypical persons mind is neurotypical. Autism isn't something that happens to a normal mind, it is a different kind of mind.
Physically, people with Asperger's Syndrome can smile. However, they are likely to use less nonverbal language that a neurotypical person and might not understand when smiling would be appropriate.
Autistic people are 'cleverer' than people who use the word 'cleverer' that is certain. In theory Autistic people are more intelligent than Neurotypical people, but there is no reliable measure of intelligence or way to say for sure which group of people is more intelligent.
Neurodiversity means recognizing that there are different types of brains - Autistic, ADHD, bipolar, etc. - which are all variations of humankind, different but equal. It is similar to recognizing that everyone is a different skin colour and no one race should be considered better than the other. Neurodiversity supports the idea that Autistic people should be treated as equal to Neurotypical people, that they should not be forced to try to be Neurotypical at… Read More
Kids with autism can 'freak out' when other kids cry, all autistic people are different. Autistic people have lower levels of cogitative empathy, meaning that they may struggle to recognise emotions in others or acting appropriately in response compared to neurotypical people, however autistic people have significantly higher levels of affective or 'true' empathy compared to neurotypical people. This means that autistic people can be very sensitive to the emotions of others, when they are… Read More
Autistic people are as likely to experience auditory halucinations as neurotypical people. Auditory halucinations are not a characteristic of autism, if an autistic person is experiencing these symptoms it is a sign of a mental health problem and not due to their being autistic.
Firstly, it's offensive for you to imply that autistic people are abnormal - autistic people are different to neurotypical people, not less than. A person is born autistic, it is not something that happens to 'normal' people or something that you turn into, you are always autistic.
Jhon Bull is the symbol for England and their people <3
Some people are Autistic and some people are Neurotypical...for the same reasons some people have blue eyes and some people have brown eyes, some are born as Asian people and some are born as caucasian people. It's all due to genetics, variations in humankind.
Although Autism is rarer than Neurotypical neurology, Autism doesn't make people unique, no more than any other neurology. People are unique because people are unique: everyone is different, it's the same regardless of neurology.
Yes, Autism has a big impact on a persons social life. People who are Autistic have social and communication problems which means that making and maintaining friendships is very difficult, and often neurotypical people can dislike Autistic people because they don't mimic neurotypical body language or because Autistic people act differently to neurotypical people. Autistic people also often struggle to maintain social interaction, it requires a lot of extra effort for Autistic people to be… Read More
Yes, an autistic person (autistic community rejects people-first language) can be a sexual predator. However it's important to point out that autistic people are no more likely to be sexual preditors than neurotypical people.
An Autistic teen has the same rights as a neurotypical teen. Depending on where you live you also have disability rights, these are not extra rights but rights to protect disabled people.
It depends what you mean by "normal". If by normal you are asking if autistic people will ever become neurotypical - no, that's like asking if black people can ever become white. Who wants to be normal anyway?
No, not all autistic people lack a sense of humour. There is a saying in the autism community: once you've met one autistic person...you've met one autistic person. autistic people are as different and varied as neurotypical people.
Autism is a neurological difference so it effects all emotions a person has. Autistic people can often be more emotional than neurotypical people because Autistic people have higher empathy than neurological people (even if Autistic people can't always show such emotions).
It is difficult to say because this is an area of active research. The latest results suggest that many autistic brains are wired differently, both from neurotypical brains and from other autistic brains. Unless very large numbers of people are scanned, this is only a guess. If you're autistic and reading this, your connectome makes you a unique snowflake. Do something interesting and worthwhile with it!
Autistic people are normal - so yes, if both parents are autistic they may have an autistic child or a neurotypical child, either way that child is normal.
High Functioning and Low Functioning are terms sometimes used to describe Autistic people, however they're largely meaningless terms that are actually harmful to autistic people. High Functioning basically refers to Autistic people who can act like neurotypical people, whereas Low Functioning tends to refer to Autistic people who cannot live independently or pass as neurotypical, including those with severe developmental delays, learning difficulties, and/or non-verbal Autistic people. There is no strict distinction about who is… Read More
Autism is a neurological divergent, a difference in how the brain is formed compared to people such as neurotypical people, people who are bipolar, or people with ADHD. Germs cannot be spread from a neurological difference any more than they can be spread from a racial difference or a different hair colour - this question makes no sense.
No, autistic children look no different to neurotypical children.
Yes, Autistic children grow-up into Autistic adults and will live as long as neurotypical people. There is nothing about Autism specifically that could shorten a persons life.
Around Autistic people you should act exactly the same as you do around neurotypical people or people with other neurodivergency. If an Autistic person requires a little adjustment in something they will tell you, even if non-verbal they can still communicate their needs and wants.
Muscular people like Taylor lautner are a symbol of strength!!
Within the category of neurotypical people there is a wide range. Some are not flexible enough to ever trust a person with Aspergers Syndrome. Some are. Friendship is basically the same whether you have Aspergers Syndrome or not. You and your friend have mutual interests, you are helpful to each other, you forgive each others faults, you do the best you can within your limitations. Everyone makes compromises, regardless of their typical or atypical mental… Read More
Islam Already has NO SYMBOLS, this symbol means Nothing, this symbol was invented by people for Differentiation ONLY
There are many groups and resources out there for neurotypical parents of autistic children, but do you know of any that exist for parents that are themselves on the autism spectrum? Especially ones that have autistic people in organizational roles?
Yes, we autistic women are just as capable of getting pregnant as neurotypical women.
