    do you know anyone on the spectrum???
    i know several, my ex used to/still does work with these unfortunates...

    after watching and learning for many months, it has occurred to me that i myself may be a high functioning autistic...

    this has not improved my chess game...

    Danny is a very lucky boy to have such wonderful parents.

    I used to teach Special Needs, over half were ASD.
    Of course the severity of autism varies enormously, my students had
    moderate learning difficulties ... academically 5 years behind their peers.
    On a field trip we were once refused entry to a fish n chip restaurant.
    Sad what some people are like.

    It’s a good thing that there is a greater awareness of this neurodevelopmental disorder.
    Some people have an inkling that they may be on the spectrum. Freaks, Geeks, and Asperger Syndrome
    by Luke Jackson, a boy on the spectrum, is a good read.

    Btw, I think your chess playing is brilliant. If you fancy another game and a chat send one my way. 🙂

    I have a nephew who is so high end spectrum that he will need full time care all his life; it has been a distressing 17 years for his parents and our wider family, but also filled with much joy at times. Your vocation would have been greatly valued I’m sure.

    What I did was relatively easy. I take my hat off to
    those that work with kids with severe learning difficulties.
