The Autism Advantage
If his parents threw out a date — Dec. 20, 1997, say — he could name, almost instantly, the day of the week (Saturday). And, far more usefully for his family, who live near Copenhagen, Lars knew the train schedules of all of Denmark’s major routes.

  1. I love the autism article. My nephew is autistic, and I’m always amazed at some of the things he excels at. It’s nice to see something that can have a negative connotation be seen in a positive light. Thanks!

    1. Warm fuzzies! I agree — some autistic people have amazing skills and I’m glad someone is finding ways to utilize those abilities. 🙂

    1. Thank you for reading! I know… those thanking things get old real quick. But, it’s good for me to remind myself to be happy. And you all get to come along for the therapy ride.

  2. If you ever find yourself aimlessly wandering around the east coast, stop in Baltimore. They have an outstanding aquarium in the Inner Harbor area of the city. I think you would like it.
