I have no idea if medical professionals or technically minded people read this forum, but I hope someone can possibly provide some information. I am somewhere on the autism spectrum, albeit of the high functioning variety. I have always had a problem with spatial navigation and orientation. Even playing first person ‘maze’ style computer games as a kid, I used to get lost. I have played guitar for longer than some professional players have been alive, and am still pretty hopeless. A major factor is that I am blind to the patterns of scales on the fretboard, which some people can pick up intuitively in weeks. Recently, I was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD) too, and after being given amphetamine based medication I saw a dramatic improvements in my productivity. This has made me wonder if there is something for spatial navigation. I am open to different strategies whether medical or mind training or any other method. I wonder if such treatments exist and where I can find more information? Thanks
Hi All, I’m a PhD student studying the links between music and autism and created a survey that will give you feedback about your musical preference scores. Feel free to share your results! I tried to include music from a variety of styles, but post any examples that you think I may have missed. Here’s a link to the survey: http://ppsisfaculty.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_4OyohZITF38PiUl Hope you enjoy!
