Time for some positive media representation. This was the lead or close to the lead story on most of the New York City TV news this evening http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2015/07/16/autistic-son-saves-mom-burning-car-li/

Good, we need more balanced and honest reporting on stories about people who have autism!! ! It starts with us by continuing to do selfless acts that help others, be it through volunteering in our free time...encouraging others, or what have you.

Thank you for sharing this story/link.

Who was that Raj guy that said it was actually another man that enlisted passersby to help the boy rescue his mother from the car?? What's true and what's not? But he must have helped a lot; he broke his hand; that's evidence.
