It is good that you are looking into testing. The wait and see approach is generally not best. I have a three year old that was borderline that we had checked and they said that it isn't a problem now so we should just work with him. If he is on the spectrum it doesn't sound like it is causing probl...

I searched and found that tapatalk has been mentioned as part of threads but wanted to suggest it. I do 99% of my surfing from my phone. I used to use a Blackberry that tended to lose my posts but generally worked but since moving to Android have not been able to take part. I have found that the And...

I don't think that anyone should be able to edit the front page. With the number of users WP has and the touchiness of issues like the search for genetic markers I imagine the front page would be anarchy. My observation about the ASAN article was against Singer before was merely an observation not a...

I didn't write that article. It was written by the autistic self advocacy network. I understand. I assumed, perhaps wrongly, that being on the front page means it is getting an editorial stamp of approval. I think that WP has lots of clout in the community when promoting or opposing other organizat...

As a parent of a child with classic autism while also an "aspie" much less affected than my son I think that I want to say that there is too much fighting between the groups dominated by parents and self advocating autistics. I think that it is very important to have dialog and honest attempts to li...

I am curious about people's thoughts on IANResearch . I realize that a large number of people in the community are opposed to anything that Autism Speaks touches, and they are involved in the project but it seems like this is a project that is aimed at helping people. Does this seem like a good proj...

Yes, I prefer to yell "Quack!" which is quite correct in the case of the overwhelming majority of DAN doctors. I actually agree with you. I'm just saying that I see three possible reasons for groups like DAN. 1. They are well meaning but incompetant. 2. They are unethical and taking advantage of pa...

I want to start out saying that I disagree with the DAN methods and do not support their group. That said I think that this is a little ridiculous. Yes groups like this do more harm than good, and yes their literature can be offensive to people on the spectrum but really. Nazis? In the quoted text t...

When my son was diagnosed with classic autism (about 2 years ago) I found myselfrecognizing a lot of the traits in myself. I didn't really pursue it because I figured all autism was LFA and never considered HFA/AS as even existing. I read an article about AS in a tech industry journal that directed ...

Hmm regular murder/suicides done by social outcasts. That would make people accept and respect us... Or you know complete oppression and institutionalism. As long as we don't have people waving "I am aspie" on the videos they do, then we are fine. If they start locking us up then they have to destr...

I am not inciting anyone to commit murder at all, in fact I have not told anyone to do anything. Merely I am just trying to understand the rationale behind people who go quietly. Surely there is none? This is an academic conversation. Nor do I live in the US, so thankfully I am not subject to your ...

I agree 14 sounds pretty old for CDD. Instead of pursuing genetic testing you may have better luck seeing a neurologist about potential nervous system damage. Insurance will probably refuse to finance genetic testing but maybe a researcher studying CDD or autism would use you as part of a study. Tha...
