I have to wonder how much of this exponential increase in autism spectrum disorders is due to our cookie cutter society slapping a label on anyone who
doesn't fit their 'normal' mold.
Your kid is hyper? ADHD
Your kid can't pay attention? ADD
Your kid is socially awkward? Aspergers
Your kid questions authority? ODD
We need to learn to celebrate differences rather than being so quick to diagnose every single issue.
I have a little guy that doesn't fit the 'mold', and I think he is awesome.
Just my opinion.
(I am not disputing that these are real problems and that many kids really do suffer from them. Just to be clear.)
