Is there ANYONE who knows anything about autism who isn't aware of it being neurologically based?


I have seen one poster openly reject the notion of autism having anything to do with "brain wiring." Said poster is not himself autistic, however.

And this person is here for what reason?

(And what DO they think causes autism? Dancing teddybears from Venus? :roll: )

You seem to have both Aspie and neurotypical traits

What would these results mean? Been told here I must be a "half pint".

Said person is here because his son is autistic. Said person is also largely a constructive poster and I have no issues with him. He doesn't seem to post in GAD as often as he used to.
