    Best answer: More than you think. I acknowledge it. Hell I even think 9/11 was perpetrated by our own government just to start that sh*t show.

Too many inconsistencies and unexplained occurrences in the official report. People heard the bombs go off in the buildings. The buildings collapsed just like a controlled demolition. Building seven was virtually untouched and it just collapsed for no reason.

  • My son was not diagnosed with autism, but he seems to have very autistic hobbies and behaviors. Why?

    I have had him tested several times and he does rank on the spectrum for autism or Asperger's, but he has so many traits.

    I have had him tested several times and he does rank on the spectrum for autism or Asperger's, but he has so many traits. His hobbies: he has memorized Pi up to 300 digits, he can remember the year of birth of just about anyone; he's memorized several poems by British Romantic poets and recites them at the same time every morning; he also likes to recite the presidents in order and the monarchs of Britain in order. I hear him doing this while he's getting ready in the bathroom. He's rather shy, but polite and pleasant and often breaks eye contact. He's poor at maths but has an exceptionally high verbal IQ and devours literature. Why so many autistic traits in a teen who did not get diagnosed as autistic or asperger's by more than one psychiatrist?

    Humming is a great way for you to concentrate on your studies when your autistic is is stimming and perfectly understandable if someone knows anthing about autism. More approprate books to read are books about healing from emotionally abusive parents and personality disordered parents https://www.google.co.nz/search?q=healing+from+abusive+parents&gws_rd=ssl

    Unless your mother just said it on the spur of the moment and apologized later she's the one with greater problems than you. Wish she wasn't your legal guardian.

    I guess you need to take your laptop to the library and see if you can get away with humming very quietly there or in a cafe if you have some money to buy a drink while you study.

    I'm a 27 year old man living in the UK, who suffers with Aspergers Syndrome. During primary school, I was in mainstream education. However, during high school I wasn't. Between the ages of 11 - 14 I was in a special school, for the last 2 years of high school I attended one to one tuition lessons because I was out of school, and for the first year of college was on a disabled learning college course before going back into mainstream education. Although I haven't spent most of my academic life within special education, it still has had a detrimental effect on me and my development in many areas of my life. The education I received was of very low quality as the schools did not offer any qualifications to its students, and instead of improving my social skills and making me less dependant on others, it did the exact opposite. When I went back in to mainstream education after all those years, I gained genuine qualifications, improved my social skills and became a hell of a lot more independent and I didn't need any help from anybody to achieve those things. However, I know quite a few people who have not been so fortunate. I know people with Asperger's syndrome who were in special education all throughout high school and beyond and their lives are absoloutley f"cked because of it. I also know people with Asperger's who have always been in mainstream education and although they may have faced and still do face great difficulties, they are in much better positions in their lives.

  • Struggling to get my autistic daughter to talk about school?

    My autistic 5yr old daughter recently started school and I can't for the life of me get her to talk about it. She will literally not tell me a thing about her teacher, her classmates, what she's learning etc... NOTHING! I ask her how her day was, she nods.

    My autistic 5yr old daughter recently started school and I can't for the life of me get her to talk about it. She will literally not tell me a thing about her teacher, her classmates, what she's learning etc... NOTHING! I ask her how her day was, she nods. I ask her if she made friends, she stares at me. She is verbal but very selective with what she wants to talk about. Her cousin is in the same class as her and she tells me that my daughter has no friends and is very quiet at school. It makes me sad to hear this because she's obviously trying to hold her feelings in by not talking to me about it. She has a therapist who she sees 2x a week but she hasn't been able to get much from her about school either. I have an appointment with her teacher next week and am just trying to work out exactly what questions I need to ask her. I am reasonably concerned. This is a mainstream school but they also accommodate special needs children, she has an IEP and seems to be doing well when it comes to her school work, just struggling socially (from what I can gather). I'm at a bit of a loss and need some suggestions on what steps to take next! I just want her to be happy at school!

  • I had an evil-evil teacher in school who claimed the cure to ADHD was to just learn how to listen. How do we educate the ignorant like this?

    Best answer: Your teacher IS evil and she sucks and these two other people who answered are creeps with NO empathy. Obviously you wouldn't have asked the question if the teacher wasn't being cruel and was just trying to help you.

    Best answer: Your teacher IS evil and she sucks and these two other people who answered are creeps with NO empathy.

    Obviously you wouldn't have asked the question if the teacher wasn't being cruel and was just trying to help you.

    You know what you are experiencing, and these other two answerers are making assumptions that you don't know what you are undergoing, or that there aren't teachers out there who are deliberately cruel, lazy or both.

    But you can't teach people like that they WANT to be woefully ignorant, they ENJOY being self-righteous and cruel.

    You can't make them understand. because they don't want to understand. They get off on putting some of their students down, while only being nice to a select few. It's a powertrip for them.

    Of course the other two people on this question don't have ADHD THEMSELVES and have never encountered teachers like that that are willfully, DELIBERATELY cruel and willfully ignorant.

    edited - I did not see or read your update before answering so after reading it, I can understand more why the other two people gave you a harsh answer, as you don't really want to be a guy who is glad people got cancer even if that person was horrible to you.

  • Does my kid have autism ?

    My friend insisted that her kid doesn't have autism... I told her that I'm not an expert... but there are some things that I can do to suggest that your kid might need to be examined.

    My friend insisted that her kid doesn't have autism... I told her that I'm not an expert... but there are some things that I can do to suggest that your kid might need to be examined. Your kid doesn't have autism huh ? Ok... watch this. I gave my friend's 4 year old child, a children's book, a power wheels jeep and a 30 pound dumbbell. He read the childrens book out loud to the both of us, right in front of us. And then I read the children's book, to confirm that he's correct. I gave the kid a 30 pound dumbbell... I told the kid.... I don't expect you to be Arnold Schwarzenegger... just lift it... Both hands I don't care.. its 30 pounds and you're 4 years old. He lifted it, quite a bit more easily than even I expected him to... Then I said... so your kid doesn't have autism huh ? he's just a big strong genius huh ?? lol Watch this. Then I gave the kid a power wheels jeep, And told him to drive it... You see how straight adults drive their cars ? Drive it just like that... keep your eyes on the road and pay attention to signs, and go around things when they're in front of you. He did exactly that... very well. Then I said to his mom... I know he seems gifted. If he were gifted, he would be an absolutely helpless, blind, deaf baby that NEVER would have done anything he just did. He's not gifted.... in fact he's very badly disabled. Mark my words. Trust me on this... get him tested.
