Mom to 10yo Autistic Wonder Boy and 6yo Inquisitive Fireball Girl . December birthdays.
I saw this one in an article about autism activism: "We're here. We're weird. Get used to it."
I think when they get the search engine back up you just need to read a list of ShaggyDaddy's post. That oughta do it.
|Many times the only difference between having a weird kid and having a seriously expensive, heart breaking, time consuming, life altering psudo-medical problem is the word "Diagnosis".|
|"Yes he will out grow it, after a certain age people will stop thinking they can control how he thinks and acts, so it won't be a problem anymore."|
|Since I don't really know anyone who is "normal" I am pretty frightened by the prospect of trying to teach my son to be normal.|
|"Autism Awareness" is the one and only cause of the "Autism Epidemic"|
|What our kids do is not really our fault, but we as parents are uniquely positioned to solve problems that are not really our own.|
