    raising an autistic child is almost always 3/4 intuition and 1/4 research LOL, at least in my experience. I don't disagree with Holt, it just wouldn't work in my son's case. He spends a lot of time researching his own interests, I just make sure to point out where those spread out and how he needs to study other things. And sometimes I have to enforce studying other things or he would be too involved in one thing to bother with anything else. At this point I'm trying also to get him ready for an adult life, including work deadlines and such, which doesn't come easily to him.
