Also, on topic: Talk about the differences in perception. Things like noticing strange patterns, repeating actions, etc.

Well, if you've read the book i'd say you'd have a pretty good idea of what the world is like through the eyes of an autustic person. Assuming you're not autistic yourself you could just put some key points in their world perception up against eachother and ponder them for a little. How they might cause conflict and so on... Basically look to the book and see how the main character interacts (or doesn't interact) with the world around him.Rikdyou said:Ummm I am doing a book study of The Curious Incident of the dog in the night-time. And one of the questions say that i have to write 500 words about a topic called The Autistic World vs. the Non-Autistic world. So far we are meant to write a structure of the essay in dot points. I just need some dot points on what i can write. Uh stuff that included the differences between the two would be fine.gamezombieghgh said:If you could give us a little more information I'm sure more people will be able to help you. At this stage you've not given much detail.
How about you mention amniocenteses, the process where doctors test to find out if a woman's baby is healthy while it's still in the womb? It can virtually determine if the baby has illnesses, (for lack of a better word), like Downs Syndrome, (which may or may not relate to Autism), but I'm sure it could also be used to tell if the fetus has autism. Some women choose to abort their fetuses because they find out that there is something wrong with it, (such as autism, though you may want to do some research to make sure this is something that can be found using this process). How does this sound?
So, uh if someone can say the difference between the world in the eyes of an Autistic person and a non autistic person that would be sweet. Or just say what it is like to be Autistic if you are.
I hope that was enough detail.
