High functioning autism....

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-43519296

Its just fukcing made up for bennies.

'His parents said they explained his autism to the scout leaders and suggested strategies to help calm and distract him, should he get upset.

They said his autism manifested as anxiety to change and that he needed to know plans in advance.

They said that although few people would realise he was autistic on first meeting him, if something unpredictable happened he could become distressed.

Later, he said he did not want to join an egg-and-spoon race because of a phobia of spoons.'

Apparently, according to his dumb mother on the radio, they were singling him out....

Err, you stupid bitch, youve singled him out.

I think kids that are classed as autistic, or dyslexic or what other made up excuse should have a big 'D' tatooed on their forehead, just to help other people.

A kid in need of a good smack and some discipline when younger.

'The family eventually sued under the Equality Act, as well as for breach of privacy and under data protection legislation - claiming emails and a briefing to parents had identified them. '

I think saying we cannot tke the kid whos scared of spoons would give them away.

Surely the scouts can just ban someone who is disruptive; it's not like school where they have to be taken in somewhere.  You just say that they are ruining it for the rest and they're thrown out.

Agree that the parents have wrecked that kid's childhood and this will only make it worse.

'Spoon phobic'

That's up there with the best of them. 

I went to scouts quite a bit when I was a kid and there were some truly appalingly behaved kids there. One of which caused an entire camping weekend to be cut short as his behaviour was so piss-poor, the leaders decided that it was too much of a liability to continue. Thankfully, for all involved, he was given his marching orders soon after.

Nowadays I suppose they might be described as autistic (seems every second kid is) but one thing was for sure, they certainly buggered it up for everyone else. I have sympathy for the genuine cases (this does not include spoon phobia) but there does come a time where, as a parent, you need to acknowledge that it's not fair on everyone else to have 90% of a groups resources and time spent keeping your kid under control. If these lawyers knew that their kid needed that much supervision and attention then they had no business sending him to an activity that wasn't specifically set up to cater for it.

As it is, I think they've taken the piss.

Full blown autism does sound a nightmare but the milder forms as @VeryMeanReversion notes are way more common. I know someone reasonably well in their  forties who has diagnosed Asperger's and tbh I really cannot see a difference between that and being a combination of socially awkward and shy.

To me it seems far more like the old description of an introvert; which is everyone who isn't an extrovert.

The poor kid in the OP has been publicly given these stupid labels by his mother (note the father not featuring; he's probably hiding in the shed to get away from her) and they will stay with him: spoons boy, autism, that weird kid.

Still she made her money.

 

There is another BBC feature on autism for women with several saying how having the diagnosis as an adult has empowered them or similar.

Following on the Downs celebration of last week they seem to be pushing that everyone has a disability even if they don't know it yet.

The agenda behind this seems to be the big state vision of Brown: everyone should be dependent upon the state and managed by it.  Tax credits give you your income with a bonus bit for your particular disability.

My lad is diagnosed with Aspergers, part of the autistic spectrum.  Although we have been told we can claim various benefits (£3K per year), we don't. 

It was obvious early on that he was different to the other kids. Very bright but low social skills, very low on empathy. He always needs to know plans well in advance and just can't deal with crowds.   Basically, his thought process is "I don't care how you feel, just give me the facts". i.e. the complete opposite of the SJW.

He gets persistently bullied at school but still does very well with his grades.  Getting his karate black belt helped his confidence so when the kids try anything physical on him, a quick punch to the face makes them think again.  He gets isolation for a day but a break from the bullying for a few weeks.

Most of my evenings are spent endlessly answering questions "why do these people do that,  how do they make xxx, how does that work, what do you think of my latest xxx design......".   Very little is worked out intuitively, its all analytical/logical.

I've worked with many engineers (usually the brightest) that are like this.  They just want clearly stated problems and computers to work with  and just can't deal with other people.  If I have a project suitable for them, great. Otherwise, don't bother putting them in a team.

I've done the online Aspergers tests myself (don't know how accurate they are) and come well above the threshold.    Many of the engineers that work for me would do the same.

 

 

 

Have you thought about signing him up for an account on here, he would fit in very well.  

More seriously, due to your obviously excellent parenting, he will go on to be a fully functioning member of society and find his neich (sp?). 

It is the parents who make it up for the bennies, or see disruptive, badly behaved kids as needing a label to excuse their piss poor parenting. Then expect the world to change to accommodate them and theirs. These are the ones who cause problems. 

All the best to you and your son.

Some kids ae god a t football.

Some kids are good socially.

Some kids are cunts.

I dont really approve of -ism personality traits.

When I was a kid I avoided standing up and speaking. Just hated it.

Im OK with it now.

True.

Im OK with introverts. Mainly as I had to work with people who were self-declared extroverts - basically a bunch of useless amdram cunts.

Which does beg the question,. if we are medicating introverts as Autism/Asperger, what can we classify the load, noisy extroverts as?

'However, Ben's parents - who are both lawyers - argued the decision effectively amounted to a ban.

While she accepted her son needed some extra support, Ben's mum, Beverly Gleeson, told the So-Called BBC the decision was a "complete overreaction".'

Surely running away from spoons and running off when he cannot find show  is a fucking over reaction?

'Soon afterwards, the pack leaders said Ben could not travel with the rest of the group on a bus to events or participate in athletics. They also said he had to have one-to-one supervision at other events. '

Should have not settled out of court. Should have let it carry on.

Parents have flagged their on as having issues.

For safe guarding reaons, requiring one to one is reasonable. And not allowing him on certain outings is a health and safety issue.

His mums a lawyer for TfL What a surprise.

 

I bet the kid was shoved off to a child minder whne he was a kid.

Id have prusued that - h's not autusic, he's a non socialised child minded kid, abandoned by his fucking parents.

 

The problem is that you have to take a decision based upon probability.

What is the likelihood of having a daft judge that finds against you?

Organisations with money will likely settle out of court  for a sum that is smaller than the costs of a trial; why run the risk of an expensive trial that might, against all common sense, go against you if you can make the problem go away for £42k.

Litigious people (they were lawyers) know this full well.

I wonder how they eat their pudding

 

Now, who do I sue for all the unfairnesses I perceive

Hold on, don't get ahead of the programme.

Firstly we need to diagnose and label all the introverts so that we have 50% of the adult population registered as having a psychiatric condition.

Only then can we move onto all the "issues" suffered by the extroverts and start diagnosing and labeling them.

When everyone has their label them the government can decide where they live and what benefits each receives.

 

I am not a number, I am an INTJ with moderate Asperger's, mild social skills deficiency, and recovered trauma from that childhood incident where the big boy took my sweeties.  Where do I sign on?

There are an awful lot of people on dating sites these day who stick INTJ on their profile as if it was like a gold olympic medal.

So you for one could justifiably have a fear of spoons.
