It is good that Autism Speaks is losing its monopoly as a go to source for autism information for the media.

Agreed. I also like that they acknowledge they might need to arrange their life differently, and need support with certain things, but still don't view autism as something in need of a cure/medication. It's not like I have cancer or something.
