Seeing The World Differently: Asperger’s Sensory ExperienceThe Autism Site
From a young age, Wendy knew her brain was a little different. But when she tried to explain this to friends and family, she wasn’t taken seriously. That is, until she was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome.
According to Wendy, while neuro-typical people log memories in photographic form, she thinks “in colors and images and layers.” But instead of seeing her unusual thought patterns as obstacles or disabilities, she has spent her adult life examining the unique benefits they bring to the world.
Today, Wendy studies the immense opportunities that exist when we open our mind to different ways of neuro-cognitive thinking.
Watch as she explains her unique form of sensory experience and the process she went through to become aware of her neurological differences.
