Every one has problems, but people choose not to acknowledge them. Being Human beings means we are not perfect without any problems. It is why there is Neurodiversity. If AutismSpeaks gets their way, they will disable the minds of this world who continue to make creations of art and science. They may want to disable these minds to be without the negative aspects, but Neurodiversity will be lost. Diversity was created for several reasons; first off diversity shows the aspects of our future, a world where interesting views and ideas are heard about, even seen. If everybody were the same then we’d all lack and miss the joyous creations we all love to see and hear about. Nothing would be talked about, and everything would be boring. We need to accept Neurodiversity and life will continue to be interesting.
Teach someone not because they are only Neurotypical, but Teach someone, any one, to be able to learn as well. Neurodiversity exists for a reason. It exists to learn from everybody and be able to learn from every body’s perspective on life. Think about how for example if different ceased to exist in all of history and even prehistory. Autism and other Neurodiversity in this world is a part of us whether we like or not.
Someone once told me every body in the world may have about 10% Autism in their minds. People with beyond 10% like myself are considered to be more different. This is where AutismSpeaks needs to rethink their goals for the world. I know there are people with Autism who have a very difficult time talking in Adulthood who even have more self-injurious behaviors, but there has to be a better way to get through to these people with Autism who are having a more difficult time.
The Autistic community who are more outspoken and do things more easily should be the ones to be able to get through to the other end of the Autism Spectrum. Together we can bring every one to create better treatments by helping society. People may want to just cure Autism because they are lacking tolerance and patience to handle the Autistic community who are having more trouble, but they should try harder. Every thing happens for a reason. Some people elaborate their differences by connecting well with animals, some with marine life, some with birds, some feel connections to inventions, or even the arts. Although we still need to find ways to connect to every body because being human means connecting and sharing our differences.
Anyway, we all need to relate to people to connect and at the same time we need to relate to every body’s needs; it is what is called Neurodiversity. The timing is now…
posting again soon, (How can their be Standardization in Ultrasound when more people each day are performing Ultrasound and places are doing their own things? should their be standardization or is their diversity in this too?)
