Please take the time out of your busy schedule to ponder this video. My sister’s adopted son, now 18, was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder, and a myriad of other things, but it’s always bothered me greatly that the possibility of autism was virtually ignored. Years after he suffered – we all have suffered -- my sister discovered in the reports that one of his social workers believed him to be autistic.
When my sister adopted him at age 3, we did not have this information. His chance now of ever being able to live normally in society has slipped away – as he has slipped away from all of us. If a child is autistic, there is a chance to help them, but it must be caught early.
Please see this video and see what you can do to help for the future of all autistic children, many of whom are misdiagnosed everyday.
