I could do a simple google search but whats the fun in that.
I want to hear from you ats members about this topic.
I have a friend i have been talking to and she told me her male child is autistic and asked if i knew anything about autism.
Give me your best.
What is it?
How do you raise an autistic child?
What do you got guys and gals....give me the 411?
I never thought ATS, of all places, would slip into this pitfall.
Once and for all, get this straight : Autism is NOT a childhood disorder. It is not an early learning impairment. Autistic children grow up into autistic adults. ASD is a genetic trait, like green eyes or curly hair. It is not a disease to be eliminated, it is the way their brain is made. It is how they are as persons.
They have not proven that it is a genetic trait, i tend to think that it is genetics, but as I said before this has not been proven (or disproven yet)
and most Autistic children if caught early enough and with enough good educational supports can function pretty normally, if not outwardly 100%.
SO I have no idea where you get your Once and for all attitude from
(Especially considering there are still many that feel vaccinations cause it, or parents that happen to drink skim milk over whole milk :yes I heard that one too there is still a LOT of research to be done and an AWFUL lot of understanding..
Kind of like the zombie walk in Shaun of the Dead.
I call brainwashing
No offense, but you're not helping on the "understanding" part.
Really...a serious topic and you do a dumb movie reference?
Who is the zombie....me asking the question or you giving me retarded movie references??
I don't think you are either.
