Autism awareness

An initiative of the Condobolin CWA

Autism, or more correctly, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), is a series of inter-related neurological disorders. Asperger’s Syndrome is a ‘high-functioning’ form of Autism.
It is a developmental disorder that affects how the brain processes information. There is no obvious intellectual disability, and indeed, many people with Asperger’s are seen as being at or above that of the average/’normal’ person.
Ten positive traits of Asperger’s
1. Focus: ability to focus on one objective over long periods of time without becoming distracted allows you to accomplish large and challenging tasks.
2. Unique Global Insights: ability to use deep thought intuition to provide meaningful insight from the unknown means that you give 100% true, factual information that they dare not challenge. When you do provide people with vital information, it is either to correct a situation, or to help them on the right path of life.
3. Independent Thinking: willingness to consider unpopular or unusual possibilities generates new options and opportunities and can pave the way for others.
4. Internal Motivation: rather than being swayed by other’s opinions, social pressure or fears, you can hold firm to your own purpose. Your unique ideas can thrive, despite naysayers.
5. Attention To Detail: ability to remember and process minute details without getting lost or overwhelmed gives you a distinct advantage when solving complex problems.
6. 3 – Dimensional Thinking: ability to utilize 3-dimensional visioning gives you a unique perspective when designing and creating solutions.
7. Cutting Through The Smoke Screen
Your ability to recognize and speak the truth that is being “conveniently” ignored by others can be vital to the success of a project or endeavor.
8. Logical Decision Making: ability to make logical and rational decisions and stick to your course of action without being swayed by other people who always disagree with you, allows you to navigate successfully through difficult situations without being pulled off-course.
9. A different outlook on the world
This has been proven to be both refreshing and valuable. Honesty, reliability, dedication, determination all these are traits that are associated with the condition.
