All living beings strive to complete their intrinsic blue print.
If unimpaired, this leads to developing a coherent self, composed of body and of soul. With this, we perceive ourselves as well as our surroundings. We process the information we have taken in and act on it in the best possible way, according to our inner nature.
All development trajectory occurs on various levels simultaneously.
If only part of the original development is impaired, this entails various implications from thenceforth.
The origin of Autism can be found in the first weeks of gestation.
Subsequently, all further development proceeds along different lines concerning the nature of the impairment and with vast differences due to its strength. For example, the functions and even the anatomy of the brain often organize themselves untypically.
The physiological cause of Autism often goes unnoticed in public discussions. Yet, by interlocking it with other theories of early childhood development and early childhood communication, we can open up a new way of looking: Some autistic characteristics which seemed at best to be remarkable, inexplicable or weird now receive recognition and approval as unusual, specific and, in any case, compensatory!
As the number of children who are diagnosed as being autistic are rising rapidly, it is my concern to carry out further research in this field.
