We need to stop seeing autism as some sort of one-dimensional sliding scale. Autism is not a thermometer. It’s not a rating that is “more” or “less”. High-functioning and Low-functioning do not exist in the real world.

Autism is a collection of symptoms and behaviours. Like a sundae bar. You choose your toppings that fit you.

Are you a bipolar extravert that loves socialising, is good at math and bad at remembering time? That’s ONE way to be autistic!

Are you a socially anxious autistic who has meltdowns when your clothes don’t feel right but a genius knowledge of music theory and is great at scheduling? That’s another way to be autistic!

Notice how both of those examples has strengths and weaknesses? Is one more “employable” or “high-functioning” than the other?

There is no one-size-fits-all category or rating for autism.

SUNDAE THEORY IS NOT A DIAGNOSTIC TOOL

SUNDAE THEORY IS NOT EVEN AN EXHAUSTIVE LIST OF AUTISTIC TRAITS. IT DOES NOT CONTAIN THINGS LIKE SYNAESTHESIA OR OCD

SUNDAE THEORY CONTAINS CO-MORBID AND COMMON OCCURENCE CONDITIONS. NOT ALL AUTISTICS GET HEADACHES. NOT ALL PEOPLE WHO GET HEADACHES ARE AUTISTIC. NOT ALL AUTISTICS ARE ASEXUAL. NOT ALL ASEXUALS ARE AUTISTIC.

SUNDAE THEORY IS METAPHOR, NOT A DIAGNOSTIC TOOL

"Reading is important.
Books are important.
Librarians are important. (Also, libraries are not child-care facilities, but sometimes feral children raise themselves among the stacks.)"

Check out the new Teen MakerSpace bin in the Teen Lounge.  We will update it regularly with new crafts and *stuff* to create.  It’s out 24/7, so feel free to sit down and explore what’s inside!

THIS IS SO COOL. I want to make one…

I am reblogging this, not only because it’s awesome, but also because this is a great model for a makerspace.  You don’t need a 3D printer or a Kinect to create one, you just need some basic supplies and a teen’s imagination.

Love this.

This is great and reminds me of my favorite thing from when I was really little, THE BARNEY BAG (I mean this in the best way possible)

Ooh! I like it!

LEAKED IMAGE OF PETER CAPALDI’S NEW TARDIS INTERIOR
Our sources can reveal that the TARDIS will receive a complete overhaul as it crashes into a planet infested with strange alien cyborg creatures who stalk children through the monitors n their stomachs.
Showrunner Moffat commented: “we wanted to get back to some of the childlike colourfulness that worked so well for Colin Baker, so show how Peter Capaldi is basically just a big softy.”

Is this getting notes because people understand the joke…. or people believe the joke. Please let it be the first thing.


Episode nine: Noo-noo and K-9 fight over who is really The Doctor’s favorite pet/useful machine combination, while pancake monsters take over the inside of the TARDIS.
