That's a good idea! I'll try to do that when I get on the next time. I think a good idea is to have some sort of thing where you buy webkinz and the money goes to that cause. Well, fighting Autism...

You'd have to talk with ganz about that. xD Good idea though!

Don't get me wrong, I love that WI is working on raising awareness, but what my wish is for raising awareness is that awareness would bring understanding and acceptance for people with Autism instead of making people want to 'cure' it like Autism Speaks wants to do.

That you for expressing this. My teenage son has Asberger's Syndrome, and it is nice to hear your perspective.

I still have a lot to learn about the disorder, but at least now we know more about why he is the way he is and it explains a lot about when he was younger. Having a child with Austism means that you have to re-learn how to parent so that it takes everything into account, including understanding his needs and behaviors.

Default Re: April is Autism Awareness Month

To me, Autism Awareness is about educating people about the spectrum, how to recognize the symptoms, and how to deal with individuals who have an ASD. So many people have no idea, or have many misconceptions about the disorder.

Some people are all about finding a cure - but I don't think I would "cure" my son if that meant it would change WHO he is (because he is a remarkable young man, unique in so many wonderful ways that I wouldn't change for anything), but I sure am doing my best to find treatments that will help him to overcome the issues that he faces so that he can live an independent, successful life.

thank you again, Electrabuzz, for all that you have done to kick off Autism Awareness Month.
