Autism – a must see video “In My Language”

Filed under: General Geek — digitalboy75 @ 10:14 am

I won’t add much comment, other than to say how I found these, and to recommend that everyone spend a moment to watch the video, be prepared to tear up/cry even if you’re not emotional. The second link is an article, meant for IT people that clued me into the youtube video. Its VERY interesting if you are in any technical field; or if you deal with the autistic. One in 150 children are being diagnosed with autism to some degree, so this includes a lot of people.

  1. That is very emotional! Jay’s oldest daughter is actually autistic. She had to be rushed to the hospital on Monday because she went into seizures and was completely unresponsive. It was extremely scary.

  2. My butch ass lasted till 7:04, then it got to me. Now I’m all teared up and I’m going to a brainstorming meeting in less than half an hour.

    This person is so amazing. They’re really experiencing the world and we are just moving through it according to conventual standards, the way someone else dictated we would thousands of years ago, and we’re fooling ourselves that we are experiencing the world.

    Thanks for Sharing Chad,
