Well said Susan!

I too feel for the parents who are in denial or are struggling to accept the autism diagnosis.

My heart really goes out to the ones who also have a language barrier. My sister and I went to a parents symposium for special needs children and there was a wonderful Vietnamese couple who was struggling with understanding all of the English handouts and also all of the acronyms that we get used to using. I can't even imagine the difficulty parents encounter dealing with schools and therapists when English is not their first language.
