“Specialisterne”

We Make A Difference

Many of the world’s great minds have reached astonishing achievements due to persistence, learning faculties, a structured way of thinking, and attention to details.

Albert Einstein, Socrates, Charles Darwin, and Sir Isaac Newton were all probably affected by a mild form of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) called Asperger’s Syndrome.

If they had not met the criterieas for Asperger’s Syndrome, they would probably not have been able to achieve the same degree of competence that helped them change the world as we see it today.

Times have changed – modern society has increased its demands to the capabilities of the employees in the areas of social interaction, communication, and adaptability – exactly those areas, where Einstein and those like him, could not cope.

Society’s social demands to employees have consequences for people with ASD. In spite of their special competences, most have difficulties finding and keeping a job.

At SPECIALISTERNE we are organized to meet the requirements of persons with ASD in order to create an optimal working environment.

Did you know?

Did you know that close to one percent of the population meet the characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?

  • Did you know that most people with ASD do not get the necessary support because of lack of ASD knowledge?

  • Did you know that the business community realises a growing need for specialists?

  • Did you know that people with ASD are natural born specialists?

ART


“The Stephen Wiltshire Gallery”

http://www.stephenwiltshire.co.uk/members_area.aspx


Stephen Wiltshire has been the subject of numerous documentaries and one man exhibitions since his discovery in the 1980’s when he was nine.

Stephen is an autistic savant whose gifts include the ability to retain visual photographic memory recall of people and places. This enables him to draw with near perfect accuracy, representations of city skylines and architectural scenes.

Stephen likes to work both on small and large scale. Some of these extraordinary drawings measure over 9ft in length, others are much smaller and more intimate. However, all possess his astonishing virtuoso draughtsmanship skills.

Stephen Wiltshire was awarded an MBE in January, 2006.

“Benx”

http://www.benx.be/eng/defilm.asp


Ben is different.


His life is a universe to itself, where he plays his favourite online computer game Archlord avidly, trying hard to train himself for the real world he lives in. The harsh world of a technical school is for him a daily kind of hell.


As the horror of being a daily subject to bullying grows, Ben devises a plan. Then Scarlite comes into his life, the girl he has met in his on-line game. That wasn’t part of the plan…


Ben is different. We see this in the way he gets up, washes himself, gets dressed, eats,…with all sorts of rituals and according to established patterns every day. We even notice it in his manner towards his mother and little brother. It shows when he walks in the streets with his walkman on his head with loud and booming music, tensed and very insecure… His life is a universe to itself, where he plays his favourite online computer game “Archlord” avidly, trying hard to train himself for the real world he lives in. The harsh world of a technical school is for him a daily kind of hell and drives him to extremes.


His Mother: A strong woman. She never gives up the fight for her son, despite the fact that she never gets closer to him and never receives a single sign of affection from her oldest son. It cost her a divorce and half of her life. But she wants to and she will find Ben. Whatever world he may be in. This story is also the story of her struggle and her amazing deed at the end to help organizing the revenge of her son.


His Father: A man beaten by life. At home the big absentee. He was the man who couldn’t cope. With his marriage. With his son. The impotence that he couldn’t help his son drives him to his first exceptional deed.


Scarlite: Bens chat-girlfriend with whom he has been playing for a long time in the virtual world of “Archlord”. She’s a mystery for his environment, but the great love of Ben.
