Surviving Autism and Aspergers Syndrome to battle against Global Challenges
“Never say die!”
“For autistic individuals to succeed in this world, they need to find their strengths and the people that will help them get to their hopes and dreams. In order to do so, ability to make and keep friends is a must. Amongst those friends, there must be mentors to show them the way. A supportive environment where they can learn from their mistakes is what we as a society needs to create for them,”
Bill Wong, Autistic Occupational Therapist
The brains of people with Autism and Aspergers Syndrome are different to normal. They do not think in normal ways. Nor do they have normal thoughts. Individually they differ so markedly that each one of them is unique. They are likely to die earlier than normal people. It is genetic. It is lifelong. And it is incurable. Those with histories of depression are more likely to have suicidal thoughts, and to plan or attempt suicide, than those without such histories. Both depression and the risk of suicide are preventable with appropriate support. Depression often occurs due to the loneliness of social isolation and/or exclusion, lack of community services, under-achievement, and unemployment. Energime University invests time and effort in ameliorating such influences for its Autistic / Aspergers students.
“Autism … offers a chance for us to glimpse an awe-filled vision of the world that might otherwise pass us by,”

“I’m pleased to announce that the County Surveyors Society International Limited of the UK is entering into a joint venture with Energime University of the USA to provide a UN Academic Impact supported and validated educational haven for people having the autism spectrum disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, to study economically, environmentally and ecologically sustainable development and further the arts and sciences appurtenant thereto in the interest of saving both the planet and its populations of animal, vegetable and mineral forms for all generations of them to share.”
