My brother has straight classical autism. Now he is well over 60 and does really well. Anyway, this is a story about humour.

My wife came across a chook (hen, fowl) in a playground. She climbed into my wife's arms and came home with her. This chook thought she was human and we would feed her separately and she would come and sit in your lap. She would also sit outside the kitchen window on the railing and look inside at you. Anyway, I was saying this to my brother, and also that I regretted not letting her into the house, because I felt I was 'damaging her soul', at which point my brother laughed.

Another time we were talking about something to do with how much everything had changed for him since our mother died. He said, quite characteristically 'Do you think Mum would be pleased?'. I said 'Well, I hope so'. He replied 'I hope so too', and we cracked up laughing.

The reason I mention this is to argue that even those with the gross neurological problems of autism learn and change over their lifetimes.
