“I remember when he was diagnosed and the doctor told me (among other things) that because autism is a brain disorder it prevented him from having an imagination. Watching my son at home flying planes around and crashing into action figures, I knew he was wrong; what else didn’t he know about?”
There is no evidence that those with autism or other ‘disabilities’ lack an imagination. Period. To think so would be to think these individuals as less than human. And that is all that needs to be said.
