I felt skeptical for a while while treating children with autism and developmental disabilities.
Realistic difficulties are also a reason, but there are more fundamental philosophical questions.
There are fundamental questions and skepticism about whether treating autism was right.
The world I see and the world that autistic children see. What is close to the truth?
I think the answer is autistic children.
Autistic children view people and things with equal value.
I don’t think people are more important.
It’s looking at the visible reality as if it’s a real picture.
But ordinary humans manipulate reality.
It’s about processing information based on people.
That way, we can communicate socially.
In the end, ordinary humans distort reality and recognize false reality.
Perhaps the world that autistic children see is a much more pure and much more of a true world.
Doesn’t that mean that you can see a false world? The question is still there.
Eventually, throughout the treatment process, children’s extraordinary talents are erased or weakened.
Children who have a lot of visual pursuits and have the ability to scan things in one minute in detail.
There are many children who scan books and read them whole.
These children improve their ability to acquire documents and show excellent ability to handle subsequent documents.
Some children also show the ability to catch and reproduce the detailed characteristics of objects.
Children with these talents later become brilliant lawyers and artists, photographers, and film directors.
Some children develop detailed sound discrimination skills and grow into musicians.
Others visually reinforce pattern recognition or is obsessed with numbers and grows mathematically.
But throughout the treatment process, these talents are gradually weakened.
As the pursuit of senses decreases, so does talent.
As people’s affinity increases, the ability to search for objects becomes normal.
The ability to see a true world that only the children of Autism can see is deteriorating.
Children’s exceptional talents are also weakened.
Should I still continue with the treatment that makes it like this?
I had to answer because I felt questionable and skepticism.
The poor logic of treating children because they are abnormal and we are normal is not an answer.
It’s all the more unanswered, in terms of neurodiversity, it is where we’re a little bit more special as people and we each have our own unique characteristics.
After long consideration, I was able to find a simple but clear answer.
The first answer I found is that it makes me have the ability to exchange love.
The purpose of treatment is to restore the ability to experience happiness to exchange love with family members.
Due to the lack of social communication skills, our children cannot express their love for their family properly. I can’t express my desire to have fun with my friends. Therefore, I am misunderstood as a child with no emotions and I am living with a severe sense of isolation.
Treatment helps you overcome these difficulties and share love and happiness with your family and friends.
Secondly, the answer I found is that children’s natural talents help them grow properly.
Children’s exceptional talents sometimes appear to be disabilities, but I think they will be respected as their talents themselves if social development is carried out properly.
I think that children’s exceptional talents may be a gift from the heavens for humanity.
I hope that the unfortunate reality that these children’s talents are disappearing because of a lack of communication will be improved.
After all, humans distort reality in order to communicate happily~~
You never have to exaggerate your child’s problems.
Children simply lack the ability to convey their feelings to their parents.
It’s just one problem.
Other characteristics will not be a problem if this one problem is solved.
