  1. Once again, Hollywood has failed to give a comprehensive view of autism spectrum. Thankfully, You Tube videos like, “autism spectrum seems out of control” and ‘autism epidemic out of control” shed new light into the pervasive misuse and abuse of the word autism and how it hurts families raising truly autistic children..that said, Temple Grandin is a marvelous woman, but was never really autistic, she’s severe Aspergers, OCD, etc…on psych meds…

  2. That is why I am compiling a book which will be parents’ stories on their children. I want 150 stories from families to give a broad complete picture of what it is like to be the parent of an autistic child. Anybody interested to be considered can contact me by mail via the school @ 91 henderson Ave SI NY 10301

    • I’m interested. I have a son who is 11 yrs old and is mild to moderately autistic. The funny thing is he has language and character. He is also very loving and funny. He loves to make movies and is very into art and making books. It’s taken alot to get him to where he is today.

      • My son is 8 years old and is the same as Susan Tu’s. This is a new diagnosis so it is nice to know there are others out there.
