I just saw a news interview from my local Autism Society (of the Bluegrass) for their Autism Walk. I’m not involved with the Autism Society as much as my mother used to be…but I believe their hearts are in the right place. My mother and I did not have a good initial meeting with them, but I would like to be more involved, because I realize they have the best of intentions for people like me. Here is why:
- When the newscaster said “eradicate” autism, it was not further discussed. That is a viewpoint I respect.
- The leaders involved seem to push supports and involvement in society.
- They mentioned there is still very little true information out there on autism, since autism is still very unknown (except by us autistic adults and children).
- They did not mention the debates on causes.
