Is it just my auditory processing being wonky again, or did John really suggest that Sherlock's got Asperger's? I've been thinking for awhile that his style of taking in all the details at once instead of 'zooming out' to see the big picture is very similar to the way autistics handle sensory input. The difference is that he's actually got the brainpower/speed to handle it, with room to spare for deductive reasoning in realtime, instead of getting overloaded. His method of recalling information, complete with images and sound clips as shown in tonight's episode likewise seemed quite familiar, though of course I've never had quite that much control over it.

Rachel's latest post at Journeys with Autism reminded me of this project. I discovered it awhile ago, but I don't think I ever linked to it here, and the comments on some of my recent posts show that at least some of you might be interested.

Aspie Whovian Michaela Schubert (Jeyradan) is a doctoral candidate at the Pennsylvania State University of Medicine. She is writing a book about Doctor Who and the autism spectrum, and she is seeking input from other autistic fans. Please check out her project website and fill out the questionnaire, if you'd like to participate.

Last night, I finished reading a book called Aspergirls, by Rudy Simone. I might make a separate post about it if I can get in the right headspace to write, but I found it very interesting to read about issues specific to females on the autistic spectrum, some of which I'd never consciously thought about, and many of which I'd never realized I had in common with others.

I'll probably be out for part of the day, but I'll be spending some time getting acquainted with Addergoole in preparation for my next story sketch.
