It's been an interesting week out there. Just wanted to share a few things I've run across that struck me as worth mentioning.
I read at least three people put forth the idea or back it that the rate of ASDs is 1 in 10. Huh.
Then I read that if autism was genetic, it would be 100 percent. Sigh.
I also keep reading folks who thoroughly distort what the idea of neurodiversity is. To be fair, perhaps there are those on the fringe who say what these anti-NDs contend. But to paint everyone who believes in the idea of neurodiversity and treating people with respect and dignity as these anti-NDs do is just beyond black and white thinking. They are rather rigid folks; apparently if you don't agree lockstep with them, you are polar opposite of them. Either-or kinds of people.
So, not folks I guess who will want to gather hands and sing kumbaya as the woo figting warrrior princesses play various musical instruments (perhaps some well, for sure some badly) and do a woo fighting warrior princess dance. Damn. We could have had popcorn, too.
