Senses Series Part 5 Sight

WOW. Final Part of my Series guys please let me know what you all think. I love your comments either on twitter DM me or Tweet Me or leave a comment down below I would love your feedback.

Right so without further ado.  Let’s See What Sight has to do with autism.

You probably know my format by now. So I shall continue with it.

What is Sight

Our sight helps us to define objects, people, colors, contrast and spatial boundaries. People with an ASD may experience their visual fields differently.

We fall back to sensitivities here to help us understand how autism affects sight. Hypo and Hypersensitivity

If your sight is under sensitive or Hypo.

  • Objects appear quite dark or lose some of their features.
  • Central vision is blurred but peripheral vision quite sharp.
  • A central object is magnified, but things on the periphery are blurred.
  • Poor depth perception – problems with throwing and catching; clumsiness.

Or if it is over sensitive or Hyper.

  • Distorted vision: objects and bright lights can appear to jump around.
  • Images may fragment.
  • Easier and more pleasurable to focus on a detail rather than the whole object.

Currently for this article I am using researchautism.net and the NAS, their article has made me think about my personal story.

When I was born I was born with a sight defect called Septo-Optic Dysplasia confusing name I know. Many people have not heard of it. So let me break it down

Septooptic dysplasia (SOD), (de Morsier syndrome) is a rare congenital malformation syndrome featuring underdevelopment of the optic nerve, pituitary gland dysfunction, and absence of the septum pellucidum (a midline part of the brain).

So Before I even knew I had autism I was born with a defect. Now I have spent the whole of my morning researching this and I have not found any conclusive links between this and autism but if we look deeper at the correlations I believe there may be some relationship.

Developmental delays are present in both autism and SOD. But not every person is affected in the same way. Remember we are all unique right down to the imprint of our fingerprint. No two are ever the same

Next Week, I will be starting my brand new series and its all about you, *Sung in Mcfly style voice* Its called Spotlight blog. Where I feature you My first featurette is Jeannie David Rivera

My About for 2016. Tada! LOL I am JOAG, Joag is a fictional character I created to help me write about Autism. JOAG is an acronym for Just One Autistic Girl. JOAG is a unique individual with a passion for autism. Now this year I am taking the blog a step further. Joag is creating a website. Not Just any website A web forum based on autism. creating a safe place for those on the spectrum. In my blog I tell personal stories my personal stories not some fictitious nonsense I make up to make my blog seem more relevant to you. Now I want a personal goal for me. I want to do something for me. Each day I want to be inspiring I am going to run 2 miles everyday. 2 Miles a day times 365 days. 730 Miles is doable and it’s a good start for someone just getting started. But my goal for the blog and site this year is the intervention for bullying. I don't have a stat yet for the number of people in the world with autism. But we do know that it touches 2.8 mil people a day How many people are bullied on the spectrum? How many are silent sufferers? How long will we let this go on?
