Neurologically Typical Support Group

"Hi, my name is (deleted for privacy) and I'm a Neurotypical. In fact most of my friends are NT's. My family has only quite recently become aware of my condition. But fortunately they support me in this."

Finding out you are an NT never is easy. But luckily there are those who know what it is like. With whom you can share thoughts and ideas on how to cope with this situation and how to handle its common symptoms.
In an effort to support those who are NT, have an NT relative or know an NT this community has been founded. Feel free to exchange thoughts and anecdotes. If you have helpful hints or tips on how to get the most out of your predicament post them here.

And remember: you are not alone.

Alas your friend may never completely fit into autistic society. It is a burden NTs have to live with every day. However they can be made aware of their condition, even to such levels that future contact for both parties will be highly enjoyable.
First and foremost it is necessary for your friend to be educated about his or her traits and behavior. E.g. direct him/her to one of the many links you may find in this community's info. Or recommend a good book dealing with the various aspects of this issue.

A neurotypical can only begin to understand by being made aware. It may take time and patience but even NTs can learn to live perfectly satisfying lives and prove to be of beneficial value, to both you yourself and society.

(As for sound, honest advice: talking might be a good way to start. However you may not feel like talking and your friend may not want to listen. Writing things down in such cases really comes in handy, as does the huge amount of literature available on this topic. Having them read about this may help, even if it starts with something as small as a newspaper article.
But aside from this it's always important to communicate at some level. The NT-mind works in mysterious ways and only together may you come to understand exactly how.)


I wish you and your friend the best of luck. And I hope hear about improvements in regards to this situation. ;)

Suffering mild NT symptoms but on the road to recovery

I've recently become more aware of my own NT symptoms. Although I consider myself only mildly NT, it's clear that my NT tendencies seriously impair my functioning as an independent person. I am learning to come to terms with this disabling condition, with the help of my autistic son.
