Locked in another world, heartache or just inconvenience for others? Autism is increasingly
on the rise. But what if we have got it wrong and Autism is just another way of accelerated
evolution waiting to manifest in a way others can understand.
“What are you doing for others?”
STOP LEARNING - START THINKING
When Jacob was sent to Special Education, he said,
’ it was extremely special, because they didn’t educate me.’
What a statement and of course it is an accurate one.
Over the years I have volunteered with many groups/individuals. In 2012 I helped
with, ‘The Wishes Project’, that highlighted the wishes of those around care.
I believe that it helped highlighting some of the ways in which difficult issues
are perceived. Just as in the case of Carly and Jacobs parents, (FEATURED VIDEOS)

Jacob Barnett may well achieve The Nobel Prize at the age of fourteen (14)
He has rocked the world of Science and may prove via Quantum Theory, results so profound
as to inspire a whole new way of thinking. Yet as a child he isolated himself from,
‘our world’, in order to concentrate on some of life’s big picture. How many of
us would comprehend this fact?
So for every child/adult in this world suffering from or graced by Autism, maybe
the rest of us need to adjust some perspectives?
Five senses overload, Noise, smell, sight, touch and taste, all working at an optimum
Is it possible for most of us to understand this? Probably not!
How much could we all learn from those who have experienced this?
So what if we discover a way of balancing the senses?
This could also assist those with senses deprivation as well.
The difference between what is seen as the norm and being different can be so insignificant
from a medical perspective it surely heralds the question, what exactly is the norm?
Looking at how we can learn from each other is a gift in itself.
