    Communication


    In response to By the Numbers, posted by Jesse Resnick,
    in the thread By the Numbers

    Jesse, You really finding some great sources, and it sounds like your understanding of the issues faced by the autistic individual in increasing. Is your conclusion that autistic kids do have enhanced spatial abilities, or only that they are compensating for deficits in other areas? And why do you think that, by the time they are 16, the advantage appears to disappear? Are you suggesting that, with appropriate educational supports, it would be possible to help these kids to purposefully cultivate their spatial skills as young children? If so, this might begin to suggest the kind of product that you should be considering for your thesis proposal. steven
