It'll be interesting to see if he maintains his interest for art as he grows older.

Considering the amount of children who dabble in drawing at a young age (read; all of them) it's a wonder there aren't more child prodigies circling Facebook.

Eidetic memory and Autism are entirely divorced from each other. Savants like Stephen Wilkshire are in an incredibly tiny portion of Austitics. The kid *might* be autistic, and judging from his sociable demeanor he almost certainly isn't, but it would have nothing to do with his skill.

The misconception that austistic people are talented or smart is incredibly inaccurate. Statistically speaking, somewhere in between 25% and 70% of austitic people meet the criteria for mental retardation, and anecdotally speaking, the unfortunately vast amount of autistic people I've met (through the absolute fucking pleasure of having an autistic brother who's in half a dozen different support groups) have been completely fucking idiots.

Give your average austitic person a pencilcase and they'll organise the contents to be parrallel to the desk before slamming their faces in the middle of it.

It shouldn't annoy me as much as it does, but every time I see some autistic character who's secretly a genius all I can think about is how it's a wonder they're not biting their hand and throwing a screaming fit whenever somebody doesn't start walking with their left foot.

The more you know. Or the more I rant about my pet peeves, whatever.

About 10% of autistic people have savant syndrome and about half of all savants are autistic, but it doesn't always end up being useful skills. Pity the kid, for instance, that got stuck with the obsession with vacuums and the ability to identify ceiling fan motors from the sound of the hum rather then ending up with perfect pitch and the ability to copy everything piano piece he hears.

This might very well be the only rant you've posted (and there are quite a lot of them) that I do not dislike, in fact I very much appreciate it. Although I can see the occasional benefits and even need for it, I always have a lot of trouble with labeling poeple (as autists or dyslectics or as having ADHD et cetera). When you start labeling poeple incorrectly you are just being dumb as well as disrespectfull

I really should start looking up words before I use them with definitions gleaned from context.

Never met a savant but none of the citations listed when such abilities manifest themselves. All the Austitic people I've met have been in their early childhood to mid-teens, so it's possibly that the drooling moron in the corner stacking cups will be the Next Big Thing.

One of the examples used in Dave Hile's short explanation only had his abilities manifest at 40.

Quoting wikipedia on this, I guess that was your source too:
"There is no agreement about how many people have savant skills. The estimates range from "exceedingly rare"[11] to one in ten people with autism having savant skills in varying degrees"
I'm more of the former group, but this really depends a whole lot on your definitions of autism and savantism

Also: strong forms of autism can make savantism go undetected and likewise there are many highfunctioning autists who would probably be considered talented-but-a-bit-odd rather than savants.

I checked the citations, they've either been misquoted or whoever edited the article didn't bother reading all of [11], because that short essay listed savants as being around 1 in 10 Autistic people, too.

Just as well because the effect was discredited some time ago.

And I would love to hear how a thread centered around miscellenaneous discourse being used for just that is "bullshit".

Gah ok well I guess the general confusion between autism-proper and Autism-spectrum disorders or even the autism-phenotype.

Im actually one of the more interesting types within the autism population. I go to a place full of aspies and sure there are aspie prototypes. But I am even more odd because Im seriously severly awwtistick. Ive noticed so many of them are thin like sticks.

Stop calling it aspie or awwtistick... They're not fun.
Anyways, 1) we weren't talking about you
2)it's not herd mentality if poeple are disagreeing with each other
3)This is an english forum; if you don't understand what someone is saying, just ask em, no need to get offended.

Nahh nothing. Just a precursor to yet another shitstorm which I wont let happen this time. People here just dont like me acting big, but I dont mean anything bad. I just dont get it why people are always looking for a conflict with me here.
