You mean to tell me upbringing causes them to be how they are?? give me a damn break.. This is like saying Hitler did what he did cause his dad beat him..

He may have a PhD in Nutrition, but he knows jack scat about autism.
There are literally hundreds of different treatments available for autism.
So, why does FEAT so strongly support 40 hours per week of EIBT?
Early Intensive Behavioral Therapy
...is the only treatment that has been scientifically proven
to pro-duce significant, measurable, and long-term effects
on the functioning of children
”the ability to function adequately in adult life may depend as much on the degree of support offered (by families, educational, employment and social services) as much as basic intelligence” (Lord and Venter, 1992, Mawhood and Howlin, 1999)

...gave all these marginal people way too much status...

Yelling at an autistic child will get you nowhere. Autism IN NOT A behavioral problem that can be corrected by going R. Lee Earmy on the kid. Anybody that thinks otherwise is beyond me :shk:
