Autistic Children & Google SketchUp. Pretty Cool Stuff.

What goes on in an autistic mind is pretty interesting, it's crazy to see some of the things these kids come up with.

Autistic doesn't mean stupid.

Most of us are quite intelligent...

Unforunately I think the general perception of autistic persons is that they are mentally retarded and thus incapable of doing or thinking for themselves. Which is not anywhere near the truth, autistic minds come up with some amazing stuff.

Very cool! I taught autistic children for a while! I was the most rewarding and challenging jobs I have ever had! I got so emotionally attatched to some of my kids and they got just as attatched to me. It was hard when I had one get violent and I couldn't teach him anymore!


Amazing stuff.

Amazing stuff.
When I worked in the school district I visited many times to special education classrooms and the children can be the most awesome loving kids in the world. But there were times when a child would get out of hand, and that's when all broke lose. I have so much respect for the teachers who run those classes. It takes a very special kind of person to be able to do that all day.

I used to provide ABA Lovaas therapy on autistic kids in the TYAP (Texas Young Autistic Program). We worked with kids that were defined as "genius", ranging from memory/engineering capabilities to musical/artistic talents. Unfortunately, our work was behavioural to assimilate the kids into society in a manner where they would not rely on living assistance for the rest of there lives...not a "cure", so to speak. Pretty depressing.

Austism does to married couples.
