As the parent of a child with autism, I’ve supported Autism Speaks over the years, in large part for all they do for families like mine. This article does however, give some food for thought.
I’ve come to believe that a lot of us (including myself) have autistic traits and therefore maybe it’s not really something that needs to be “cured”. Anyway, I still think that Autism Speaks does good work and I hope they continue to evolve.
Oh yea, the article is entitled “A Leading Autism Organization Is No Longer Searching for a ‘Cure’ over at the Science of Us.
