Mainstreaming autism in the news...

This link is about autism, but it's also about The Huffington Post and the way news ideology changes with ownership. Mainstream news still likes to trot out the theory that autism is just the nth degree of humankind's selection for genius. Those with autistic children born to non-autistic parents know this can't be true and that something else has happened to our children's brains. The strange focus on autism's positive aspects is so pervasive that Early Intervention draws some of its treatment plans from Temple Grandin (serious autism's most public success story). Good on you Facing Autism in New Brunswick for not shirking what's real.

Something causes autism.
