Thanks everyone for the advice on Brad's latest issue. Still a work in progress here. We've begun an elimination diet - we're eliminating bagels. (Ha!)
I stumbled across this fascinating study. The conclusion is that those with "autistic spectrum conditions" have something approximating eagle eye vision. The study is based on the progressive philosophy that autism is in part difference and not disorder or disease. Dare I say this could be a coveted "biological marker" of autism? See what happens when we focus on the big picture and not just that which needs to be vanquished or cured?
The studied is co-authored by Simon Baron-Cohen, so it has credibility. Yet, I could find no press or wire reports on the findings. I couldn't find much by way of blogging either. Strange.
