Concrete occupations, as in math with that aptitude, construction, driving, truck driving, retail for high functioning, etc.That's funny. Would you consider those with aspergers 'average' then? And wouldn't those parents who home school be considered not really having an actual occupation?? Would home schooling be considered a concrete occupation?? LOL!
Normal? The truth is that what we consider 'average' is FAR below potential, and I'm talking about adults. If the young adult fails to reach a certain cognitive stage prior to negative effects of aging, he NEVER will actualize potential.(I suspect it's possible, but unlikely.) Once aging attacks, and it could be as young as 30 years, the psychological orientation is ALWAYS 'behind the curve,' as in baseball jargon. Often the young adult is clueless about what is going on.
The above 'adult' is the lowest common denominator in our cultural mass mind. Sociologically they are prey for the ruling class shot callers, via the mass media.
And our Marxist ruling class are fully aware of the above.
School psyche staff, effective staff that is, tend to know about asperger kids these days, BUT may NOT know that these may be interested in computer code writing. Asp kids WILL find something, but not career oriented, if left on their own. But whatever it is, they'll analyze it to death, and to the chagrin of parents,(as in driving them nuts with their obsession with whatever).
