User talk:Just plain Bill
|1, 2, 3|
Hi. Bill here. carry on...
I will answer you here, so please watch this page if you start a new heading.
If I start one on your talk page, I will watch there, to keep the discussion on one page.
(see history archive 1 for stuff that was cleared out 2008 Aug 5)
Please add new messages to the bottom of the page. That is where I look first.
- I don't remember exactly, but most of the sources in the deleted revisions of the Solfeggio frequencies article were New Age woo-woo type stuff. See Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Solfeggio_frequencies. There is plenty of "snowflakes respond to ancient Gregorian chant" type malarkey mentioning Horowitz still to be found on the web, but if it's secondary sources of serious scholarship you're after, they could be scarce.
- What little I've seen of your editing history reassures me that you are not inclined to whitewash a crank's article, so do what you feel is right. If all mention of this bit of nonsense is to be snipped from the Horowitz article, then that redirect page should be deleted as well. Regards, Just plain Bill (talk) 13:39, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Makes perfect sense. This was my first Wikipedia post, and I wasn't sure how this all worked. I have not had the chance to go through your article in its entirety, nor am I an expert on this. However, I know how critical and difficult non verbal communication can be for many to both comprehend and put into practice. My oldest son (11) is on the mild/moderate Autistic spectrum, and I am going to try to begin creating a type of kid-friendly discussion/curriculum with him to explain many of the things you talk about. He has such a hard time creating friendships because he doesn't understand how the back and forth flow of human interaction works, and it saddens him that he doesn't have many friends..certainly not as many as his younger sister.
If I could, I would probably leave my job in the construction trades (superintendent) and work on something like this full time because I know that a mastery of NVC (non verbal communication) will either make or break his ability to relate to others in his life.
I can either move my comment down or delete it. Let me know.
- No big deal on the top-posting thing, Adam. Most of the old conversations got swept into an archive recently, so this talk page is now short enough that it's easy to see where stuff is.
- I'm not sure where to find resources for parents with such kids. I bet they are out there. There might be some support to be found on the r/autism subreddit, but I don't know how good it is. Kindly keep in mind that Talk:Nonverbal communication is for figuring out how to improve the article, not a general discussion forum.
