Autism on CNN
April 1, 2008 § Leave a comment
It appears this week that CNN is going to do the miraculous and pull down “The wall of silence around autism”.
Now I will give you that my experience with autism has made autism very much “on the radar” for me, and I suppose there are some people out there who really haven’t heard about it all that much, but, despite the fact that raising the general awareness of autism is a good, I can’t help but be leery. The media love to showcase autism cases where the autistic individual is relatively high functioning. Now I could be wrong and we might see the whole spectrum represented, but I am not holding my breath.
