dr granted let's start at the very beginning from your perspective what is

0:07

alters on term limits and are a lot to pull disorder

0:10

child's one was that i can vary from my very severe with the charred remains

0:15

nonverbal with many other problems maybe have blood seen seizures

0:18

to jesus out the silicon valley

0:21

you know you get a little bit of the autistic trait you might get a multi

0:24

rowing sign

0:25

you get more of a trait

0:27

you get for severe problems while the main problems in autism is done

0:30

you know lack of violence social understanding that has to be repetitive

0:35

fixated interests

0:36

often these kids often get intense special interests

0:39

when you use a special interest motivate schoolwork kid like airplanes

0:43

mistress reading with airplanes math airplanes

0:46

so they're actual differences and end all to stick brain

0:50

yes sir can statbrain ariel you have a normal early over parole for in the

0:55

brain especially in the back part of the brain

0:58

the file for tax breaks at the function of how to get what they love

1:01

this in case is mainly as an extra mathematics circuits back here and

1:05

that might explain some of the savant skills i want to emphasize not everybody

1:08

in the spectrums of support

1:10

artisans are very very broad spectrum

1:12

some of these all thinkers like made taken photo was two pictures come by

1:16

google for images

1:17

others are pattern sankar kind i think chests or a commie

1:21

organic chemistry formulas sort of more abstract patterns good at math may have

1:25

trouble with reading

1:27

and then some of this case manager all time without her i was one of those kids

1:31

has a plan to kids that cannot do algebra they can do geometry and

1:35

training they need to go to geometry and craig

1:37

and then is not the kind of mind forward thinker

1:40

and they're not a visual thinker

1:42

to one of the things that the artistic mind it tends to be good at one thing

1:45

that something else and we've got to work on blowing up strikes

1:49

let's talk a little bit about your own situation

1:52

when did you learn from which you realized that you are seeing things

1:56

differently

1:57

than some of us well and also look in high school i thought i was a fun

2:01

pictures i'd realized by thinking was different

2:03

and i didn't fully understand the extent how what they king was different and to

2:07

our wrote my book thinking in pictures that would have been in the midnight

2:11

east and updated ten two thousand sex

2:14

and i asked people think about church steeple and are shocked to find out some

2:18

 

you know that this is a big stick thing that figure image i_d_c_ specific ones i

2:22

can tell you exactly where they're at there is no generalized one

2:26

but a lot of people dot generalized pictures of things in their mind

2:30

and that was a real shock to me discomfort that

2:32

but i didn't discover it blessed are talking to people about how they think

2:37

have those traits have they help you in your professional life

2:41

well ping a visual think i really helps me as a designer i don't want to

2:44

emphasize is a lot of people who do not have watches and they're also visual

2:47

thinkers

2:48

by visual thinking is more on the extreme and

2:50

because i draw drawing it actually test run the peace with the man in my mind

2:54

most other visual thinkers designers

2:57

you know they can make the still picture dot test run

3:00

and that's coming right absent for decidedly visual thing

3:05

and it sounds like you believe that we could be integrating autistic children

3:09

much more into the classroom and everyday life are weak

3:12

we lose a generation if we don't do this

3:14

we've got to start thinking about

3:16

when the kids in middle school what's he going to do in close up

3:19

illegal ahron

3:21

you know work skills being on time

3:24

doing unassigned task

3:27

on various concern the schools of taking out so many of the hands-on classes

3:31

if i had not art classes sewing class last night woman preschool i would have

3:35

just been dead those are the classes that

3:37

made school meaningful and my science teacher in high school and all kinds of

3:41

great hands-on projects

3:43

and that got me turn on

3:45

now i had a reason to study

3:46

becoming a scientist

3:49

it seems as if we're seeing more cases of all it isn't is it just that were

3:52

more aware of it

3:53

or we seeing an increase in the disorder you get the very mild type of what is on

3:57

the illustration all the big bang theory type geeky types

4:01

dole's have always been around

4:04

they have always been here i can't take it kids i went to school was that they

4:08

labeled ask burgers are mild ought to some today where i think there may be

4:13

some increases some very severe autism

4:15

actually where the kids seems to develop some language and that all of a sudden

4:19

they want

4:20

and understandably many families that have

4:22

at sure child with severe alters they're looking for answers

4:26

and they've looked at various things are immunizations for vaccines

4:30

what your feelings there

4:31

well parents always look law some parents always looking for like a magic

4:34

bullet or something like that

4:37

and i want to emphasize account emphasize enough the importance of early

4:41

education intervention least two-year-olds

4:43

working hours and hours of one the ones if you somewhere where you can't get the

4:46

service fee of two and three year old get tony church getting grannies get

4:50

some students

4:50

get in there and work with that he had

4:53

there's nothing so worst thing you can do

4:55

okay a vaccine things showing one station showing the smell a fact

4:59

but i think is still one study they need to do it has to look at these repressive

5:02

group smart kids have some language

5:04

and then they lose it

5:05

we need a study that some groups separately to totally close the book on

5:08

the issue

5:09

uh... in in treating the disorder would we go from here

5:13

well the main treatments for autism arl right kind of education we've got to

5:17

start out with little kids getting at least twenty twenty five hours a week

5:21

of interaction with an effective teacher and that effective teacher to be some

5:24

news graham

5:26

but you can to slow sip mclaren off educating and rocking you know i used to

5:30

do all us artistic paper because sally hurt my ears solid rock to block out the

5:34

world will dot blot out the world i cannot develop

5:37

5:39
