I got here from one of your friends. I actually enjoy your analysis, however I see a bug. What if something is actually a gift and it is just called a disability?

Most people I know work with what is called the left side of the bell jar. Those who have disabilities and they stop the person from being able to function in society are treated while those with gifts are looked at in funny ways and not really analyzed. I believe that many students with disabilities are actually gifted they just haven't figured out how to use it.

My best example is Sherlock Holmes. He has a habit of looking at everything, and getting bored easily. In our minds this is because his intellect is so high of course it would be bored. The instant I change it to ADHD we view him as having a disability. Before you say that he is fictional Holmes is based on the skills and instincts of an investigator at Scotland yard. Sir Doyle simply added adventure to the character.

So, you mention the people you treat and in the same sentence as autism you mention ADHD. It seems so odd to me. The bug I see is that we are placing some very intelligent people on the left side of the bell curve because we haven't studied the right side well enough.

I enjoyed your article and believe you are very close to figuring out the answer, but I saw this bug and hope you can fix the programming for it. It's missing a bracket or something.
