Topic: Does having autism really mean you're retarded?

Catherine !TGirlYJKXM started this discussion 2 months ago #73,068

I am watching this story on Dateline and this guy who was diagnosed with autism is portrayed like he's retarded, but I always thought that people with autism had high intellects. Maybe not to the level that people like Sophie or Eels tried to claim, but I thought being autistic was an actual opposite of being mentally retarded. What the fuck is autism?!

> this guy who was diagnosed with autism is portrayed like he's retarded

yeah because he is a fictional character simply portraying an autist. He's actually retarded, babe.

Also Autism is a spectrum, this guy is probably very low functioning. Asperger's is only one form of autism and typically aspies are much higher functioning than your typical autist.

I think you are confused because of the glorification of Asperger's.

So whenever someone makes the claim that Einstein was autistic they actually mean Aspergers?

Look at Chris Chan. He's pretty retarded.

Depends where you are on the spectrum. High functioning are usually average intelligence, aspergers are above average intelligence and low functioning have a lot of communication issues so are considered below average intelligence.

Autism is a spectrum, moron. On the high end, you've got Savant Syndrome, which essentially turns people into walking computers. On the low end, you have Down Syndrome, which makes people so retarded that they are often aborted. There are some types of autism that don't impact intelligence much, though/

Also, "high-funtioning autism" can be applied to any autistic with an IQ of over 70. Not exactly high-funtioning.

I was wondering about him when I watched this documentary. I know she legitimately has autism since she keeps mentioning it and has the papers to prove her diagnosis, but I assume this is the difference between low functioning and high functioning autism, right? Chris is still able to function in the real world as hasn't she had jobs in the past? She just cannot hold down a job thus making her issue similar to that of Bert's.

Downs Syndrome is on the Autism spectrum? I thought that was something else entirely.

Yes, Chris-chan can speak english (for the most part) and can wipe his own asshole (for the most part) so he is high-functioning.

I think it is. Scientifically speaking, it is impossible for an autism sufferer to experience gender dysphoria. Thanks.

Down's syndrome isn't a form of autism...

And I was under the impression that low/high functioning doesnt relate to IQ but like...you know, functioning

To the casual observer, Down syndrome is, in fact, indistinguishable from autism. Thanks.

It's not. Downs is something entirely separate. Low-functioning autistics are mostly non-verbal. Downs Syndrome people can learn to talk just fine but they may not grasp the intricacies of sentence structure, grammar, and flow.

Also Down's syndrome is caused by a chromosomal defect, and autism is not afaik

The original luls of Down-syndrome is. When somebody slows learning to such a low grotesque painfully depressed and feeling down level, that he actually has to be transferred to a mental facility.
