This research discusses a productive and successful theory of autism. This theory attempts to explain in the social and communication failure that is very core of autism disorder. Autism is now widely agreed to be a neurodevelopmental disorder. Autism is a mental condition, present from early childhood, characterized by difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with other people and in using language and abstract concepts. Autism is derived from Greek which is: autos self + -ism.
The deficit in social communication is a core feature of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Among the various symptoms of ASD, it is always the most concern aspect of the parents of autistic children since it influences the development of children in different areas, including interpersonal relationship, learning and work. In this essay, I would like to figure out some ways to help children of ASD in the social communication aspect. Characteristics of ASD children Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is diagnosed based on persistent deficits in social communication and social interaction across multiple contexts and restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities. In the social communication aspects, ASD children may be found
Autism affects people in different ways. Autism affects the brain and makes communicating and interacting with other people more difficult. A faulty gene might make a person more likely to develop autism. As included if you knew two people with autism, they would have a different level of needs and
Do you think Frankenstein 's creature is human? In Gris Grimley 's Frankenstein, Victor had created an intelligent creature that when to some good and bad with the encounters he made by other people, He wanted a mate to share happiness and emotions with, like other human beings. I believe that Victor 's creature is human. The creature is considered human because he shows feelings to other people, including Victor and he desires to be happy with a mate that would not be disgusted by him. To begin with, the creature is defined as human because he talks and thinks like a regular human being.
This is an example from the book when Christopher describes wanting to be in space alone. He dreams of being an astronaut, and the thought of being all alone in a place far away from Earth calms him. Once again, this is a misinterpretation of how autistic people act. People, including Mark Haddon, stereotype autistic people and assume they want to have no social interaction. Haddon misguides readers into thinking all autistic
ideal bounds” to be broken through, succeeds in his intellectual pursuit but at great cost.” (Griffith). At the start he first loses his health, and becomes ill with brain fever from the lack of care he gives himself while he is creating the creature. Once he regains health he avoids the subject of the creature. Eventually he comes face to face with the creature and the creature tells him his tale of his negative experiences and how lonely he is. The creature asks one thing of Frankenstein, which is for him to create a female counterpart so that he can have a companion that will not judge him for being so different.
No two families who are involved with autism will experience the same lifestyle. Yes, the families can relate, but they never fully understand others’ experiences. Dr. Colin Zimbleman notices, “Autism … offers a chance for us to glimpse an awe-filled vision of the world that might otherwise pass us by” (n. pag.). Every person has a different perspective of life and the world would not be what it is if autism does not exist.
Frankenstein’s creature places himself in a submissive position when he begs his creator to have mercy on him and asking the creator to “create a female for [him] with whom [he] can live in the interchange of those sympathies necessary for [his] being.” The monster continues by reassuring the creator of his independent intelligence and power over the creature by telling Frankenstein, “This you alone can do”. Here, the creature assumes a role of submissiveness and reliance on Frankenstein. Frankenstein’s monster gains the sympathy of the reader who, despite condemning the murder of innocent people, commiserate with the lonely creature who is in search of an acquaintance, which he will likely never find. The monster also displays power and aggressiveness over Frankenstein; “You are my creator; but I am your master; obey!” The monster wants to desolate Victor’s heart, not by killing him directly,
“The monster and Safie are both community seekers and representative of the unfamiliar: they are foreigners who arrive unexpectedly at the cottagers’ door hoping to gain access to their small society.” The author later goes on to say that Safie is less qualified to work for the cottagers’ than the Creature yet she still gets a sanctuary with them. This is a very interesting view point when considering the theme of humanity. Both were travellers looking for shelter yet when the better person gets turned away does this then challenge the cottagers’ humanity? The way in which Bentley conveys her thoughts on humanity within Frankenstein, is done through a range of good examples, looking at both sides of an argument on humanity and also backing herself up with what the author or the novel Shelly writes about her own work. “Mary Shelly saw the Creature as potentially monstrous, but she never suggested that he was other than fully human.” This is a good example of how author has explored a range of sources to back up her statements.
For instance, after Frankenstein abandons the creature, the creature locates Frankenstein and decides to confront him, “He held up the curtain of the bed; and his eyes, if eyes they may be called, were fixed on me” (Shelley 46). Shelley emphasizes the inhumane appearance of the creature and the creature’s eyes’ which contrast to the clear and thoughtfulness of human eyes. The defined fear Frankenstein has towards his creation results not from his incomprehension of the gentleness of the creature’s nature but the ferocity accompanying his aura. Also, Frankenstein attempts to understand his creation and decides to consider the creature as a scholar: “…knowledge might enable me to overlook the deformity of my figure; for with this also the contrast perpetually presented to my eyes had made me acquainted” (Shelley 88). The creature himself understands people cannot see his peaceful intentions that are encapsulated in his terrifying, inalterable body.
