hackrabbit @ 11:59 am: "I'm sorry, my computer says I'm boring you."
An article from the 29th of March 2006 issue of New Scientist magazine describes a device that can pick up on certain human emotions that were nigh to undetectable at first: boredom and irritation. Previous efforts already picked up such emotions as happiness and sadness, but also detected whether someone who was being talked to was either interested or disagreeing.

At the moment the device still needs a lot of training and one won't look quite sporty with it, as it currently requires a high-resolution camera (embedded in e.g. spectacles) and quite a hefty computer. But could this be a possible future gift for loved ones? A blessing in disguise? Or just another fruitless, well intended effort? And how does it strike you that formerly "complex" concepts such as emotions can be so "easily" described?

This is a new website with authoritative ratings and detailed reviews on toys for kids with special needs. It's run by the National Lekotek Center and is very helpful. Most of the toys have links to purchase toys online. Otherwise, you can print out the review and find the toys in stores or online on your own.

Let your friends and therapists know about this website. There's a helluva of information there, including play ideas etc, and it's a great way to ensure your kid will get a fun toy that they can both use and learn from on their birthday or whenever.

How can it be that the Wikipedia entry for "Neurotypical" wasn't even posted before anywhere on this community? Hereby this is corrected. It is a very short read, but both definitions of what a neurotypical is are listed. Both the more official one and the one that is used here, in this group.

hackrabbit @ 01:41 am: Slowly the world becomes aware

It is good to see other people becoming aware of this grave situation. To see them stand up proud and no longer fear their neurotypical-self. To actually embrace it and learn how to deal with it in a constructive manner.

Why not join them now by adding "neurotypicals" to your interest-list by clicking here?

http://www.rdos.net/eng/it.htm - and excellent read for one to finally find out what's wrong with their approach to coding. Having often wondered about this myself we're now given a glimpse of how things should be.

hackrabbit @ 01:37 pm: Introduction
"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.
