you get implants?

I think the problem is that “autism” is as much a pigeonhole as a diagnosis. There are many kinds of personality and learning quirks, some far more disabling in the modern world than others, and these myriad conditions have myriad causes, but it is impossible to classify them adequately, or offer them a distinct diagnosis, so the label “autism” is used at present.
At some point, society will decide that the term is some kind of “ist”, and think af a nice new phrase, horrified that our generation could ever use such an awful name.
Autism exists alright, and is awful in many cases, but many people who are a bit quirky are just categorised and labelled, usually at someone else’s insistence.

I don’t know why I’m getting involved but you said the Autism spectrum is a load of bollox in this post. Unfortunately it is not. I deal with people everyday who fall somewhere on this spectrum. Some are high functioning, some can’t even speak.
