A Must-Read for Anyone Connected With Autism

A few days ago the New York Times ran an Op Ed piece by Cammie McGovern, mother of a ten-year-old boy with autism. She thinks that total recovery books like Let Me Hear Your Voice and Seroussi's Unravelling the Mystery of Autism have given families affected by autism unrealistic expectations, and may be a factor in the three recent, independent, murders of autistic children by their caretakers.

She says that while recovery is not something she's ever encountered, improvement and acceptance happen every day. I encourage you to read her article, and also to pass it on.

Thanks to Ep for the original article.
