Are you sure college is right for Jeremy. If is too low functioning to manage without outside help, then perhaps college isn't for him.

My dog is dying as I write this. They are out there crying and holding her, practically sick to their stomachs over it. I don't get it. She is old and meant to die at this time. I even offered to euthanize her myself at one point because they are to clingy to let go and in turn are making her suffe...

This is a case of a journalist twisting the resaults of a study. These genes do not cause autism, they simply may contribute to it. These genwa are far more common than autism. The difference UA someone with these genes may have something like a 1/50 chance of autism vs 1/150 for someone without the...

I am fairly optimistic (now that the human genome is mapped and intensive studies are going on) that diagnosis one day will probably depend more on disciplines derived from the work currently being done by molecular biologists and other related fields of science allied to this very exciting field. ...

I should calify on legality of recording. OP if you DO NOT live in the following states: California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Washington. Then it is LEGAL for you to record the therapist. ONLY the above states require all parti...

Do not record the session, in many states this is a major felony and can put you in jail for long time. It is a major violation of the rights of the person being recorded and a serious crime.

Actually, since my applications took so long for review, I lost out on SSDI (disability) benefits which have a time limit, so I received SSI benefits instead. My four hearings lasted from 30 to about 90 minutes (that is why it is a good idea to accept or request small breaks in the longer hearings)...

...How long did you hearing lasts and how long did it take for you to find out if you were rejected or denied? I'm going for SSI and by the sounds of it you went for the regular disability (forget what they call it) but I'm sure the hearings and process are probably similar. Actually, since my appl...

No idea but not everyone with autism has ADHD, or the issues associated with ADHD. I was tested for ADHD and found that it was very unlikely that I had ADHD.

Yes, I agree; the "neurotoxin causes autism" idea is not mainstream science, nor even a seriously considered theory. It's not completely out of the ballpark, but it's not being considered as a central cause; it's more one of the many ideas on the fringes, mostly being studied by people who are work...
