Let me give you the bottom line right here on my thinking regarding IQ and autism. When teaching my advanced postdoctoral classes I use the complex scientific formulation called “marble theory” to explain this complicated problem. It states: The Clinical Symptoms: From Severe Autism to Asperger’s Disorder 51 Children with autism and Asperger’s disorder are born with the same number of “marbles” (or IQ points) as everyone else. Having autism affects only their ability to use their “marbles,” not how many God gave them to begin with.
They become socially “tuned in,” develop self-awareness (“theory of the mind,” as I discussed before), and are concerned about what others think about them. Now lets see what goes awry in autism and Asperger’s disorder as the degree of severity of the condition increases. Delayed relatedness in severe autism These are the children who don’t even get off the launching pad. They fail to show the smiling response at eight weeks of age, or lose this ability soon after. They are the “early onset” cases we talked about before.
The tests were not designed to take into account my handicap, namely, I only speak English. This simple mistake was overlooked years ago when autistic kids were first given IQ tests that were developed for non-autistic children. Regular IQ tests are standardized on kids who have normal language-processing skills, and autistic kids obviously have developmental delays in language processing. Naturally then, they did poorly. ” Believe it or not, this myth is still believed even today by many who should know better.
